Switzerland-based Imverse is generating virtual reality software with creative architectural applications
Imverse’s Elastic Time, which premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, is a mixed reality documentary experience that allows the user to see their own body hologram with unlimited freedom of movement. The volumetric 3D environment provides the user with the capacity to shape space and time through the generation of black holes and time portals.
The core of Imverse’s ability to generate a realistic virtual sense of presence is there very own voxel engine. The engine is capable of merging any real-time captures into a pre-programmed 360-degree environment. For example, the platform allows users to travel within ancient structures such as the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Currently, Imverse is testing a beta version of a new virtual reality software titled LiveMaker. The platform allows for the creation of complex architectural models within hours. Through the use of a floating toolbox, users may edit and create new virtual experiences while wearing a headset.
In effect, the platform can be used as a photoshop for virtual reality, with straightforward insertion, manipulation, and deletion of a wide range of elements.
The product offered by Imverse is sold in two forms; users may submit a flat-360-panorama picture to be transformed into a “walkable” 3D model or use the software themselves for free, with a surcharge for exporting the self-made model.
