SandBOX VR integration combined the power of the sandbox tool with a set of intuitive gestures specific for head-mounted displays. Using the controllers, users can scale themselves by grabbing a digital model and pushing or pulling their hands apart or together. These techniques proved highly intuitive and effective and had the added benefit of almost completely avoiding user motion sickness, which can be a common occurrence with other VR navigation techniques.
Glaucon is a collaborative digital design tool developed by ARD to allow multiple users to collaborate in photo realistic virtual environments that can be experienced in VR, AR, mobile or through the web.
It integrates with our design and visualisation workflows, allowing teams wherever they are to engage with shared 3D environments for design reviews, client presentation or to actively engage with design tasks for collaboration.
Members of ARD have been researching and implementing XR systems for over 20 years, to create novel tools for designing and collaborating that wouldn't be possible any other way. A recent surge of interest in XR technologies around the world has promoted a leap in the availability and technical capability of hardware and software platforms. The ARD team have exploited this innovation to create bespoke experiences for our design teams, collaborators and clients.
