Supported by Peter McCready - Utilising cutting-edge True3D/VR structured-light scanning and associated cloud-processing technologies in order to digitally capture and reconstruct a fully navigable, immersive and thoroughly engaging ’3D Space’ of the Centre’s IT laboratory (with conventional 360 degree panoramas for the exterior), fully explorable via web browser using any modern desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device or via integrated virtual reality using Samsung/Oculus GearVR, Google Daydream or Google Cardboard. Features will include an ‘Inside View’ allowing visitors to move fluidly around the almost as if they were really there, a proprietary ‘Dollhouse View’ for a total sense of the space, a ‘Floorplan View’ for an orthogonal, top-down perspective and ’Mattertag Posts’ anchored to points in the 3D model facilitating the addition of the Centre’s services and project supplied hyper linkable text descriptions, photos, videos or audio files. In short, a 3D walkthrough experience like no other, more examples can be seen below:
