Mobile VR & 360 App:
ACCELEROMETER CONTROLLED MENU
Navigation around the software has been kept very simple to ensure ease of use for the user and a seamless experience which works across 360 and VR software modes.
Users click or tap on any of the images in the menu to be teleported to that area of the gym to look around. Clicking or tapping again returns the user to the menu.
360 DEGREE TOUR FUNCTIONALITY
Once an image has been selected the user is able to look around the location from a static position in 360 degrees and assess the environment.
In order to immerse the user further into the experience, audio of crashing waves and gulls bring the scenes to life and provide and extra level of depth to the visualisation.
VR OR 360 VIEWING OPTIONS
Users are able to access Google Cardboard functionality to switch between a 2D 360 or VR mode from within the menu.
In the side-by-side VR mode, mobile head mounted displays (HMDs) can be used to provide a much deeper more immersive experience for the user.
Augmented Reality App:
When a smart-phone or tablet device is directed at the unique trigger image, the software loads the 3D model for the user to interact with.
FLOORPLAN LEVEL SLIDER
In order to navigate through the different levels of the property an interactive slider system has been devised and implemented.
Users drag the slider up and down to move through floorplans, with colour-coding used to show current positions.
Users are able to move around and zoom in on the model by moving their tablet around and closer to / further away from the trigger image.
A rotate button has also been included as a quality of life feature.
