Don’t know about you, but I grew up playing Sim City on my first PC back in 1995. I was hooked. Hours everyday after school learning how to plan, manage, and build a virtual city. Fast forward to 2022, and I am now playing a similar game called Little Cities in Virtual Reality using an Oculus Quest 2 headset.
This has huge implications for the building and construction industry. Imagine city planning and using algorithms based on real smart city sensor and performance data that guides city planning or civil infrastructure layout. Imagine using life size hand based gestures to place building products whether structural, MEP, or envelope systems. Get live feedback on cost or performance data based on the decisions you make in designing the building with different products. Design the building right in front of the customer in a collaborative environment.
The future is now!
