Augmented Business: Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC)

31 August 2016

#hellodigital is hosting the ‘Augmented Business Week’, a week long exhibition showcasing Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). From 29 August – 2 September, each day includes seminars focused on particular business sectors plus a hands-on exhibit.

Wednesday 31 August Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC)

This is an opportunity to explore new ways to interact with building and engineering models. Architectural visualisations can now be set within their real landscape, experienced in-situ using Augmented Reality or experienced miles away using Virtual Reality. There will be a range of technology here in Inverness from apps that work on a smartphone or tablet to specialised headsets and a full 4.5 metre immersion dome. We will have a number of experts from the field in Inverness to exhibit their technology and share their experience.
