Walk into SmartVizX’s buzzing office in Noida and you are handed an HTC Vive headset and a wand-like object. Put it on and you are teleported into the reception of a plush office in this case that of BMR Advisors. Wave the magic wand or tracker as the device is called and it reflects a red or green beam. The minute you spot a green beam, press a button on the tracker and it teleports you into a different room. Sofas and bookshelves materialise out of thin air.
Welcome to viewing architectural design using virtual reality. You are teleported inside the space and can even look under tables and peep into lofts. Viewing the design this way, BMR Advisors caught on that some storage space had been missed and the architectural firm could rectify it.
