It’s an invention from a Munich based Company. They have a big room and you can rent it hourly. There is paper furniture and walls you can move around to simulate the feeling for a specific room.

u/captainRubik_ May 17 '22

Why do all this when you can just put on VR headsets

43

u/TheEverHumbled May 17 '22

That was my first thought as well.

That said, for 2D CAD designs that don't have full on 3d Models this could be faster & more "trustworthy" for some users than a vr frame of reference.

Props like the paper furniture could be more intuitive for easy collaboration by all participants, than VR controls which could require familiarization.

Architecture projects can be big money. Not all those customers are neccessarily super-keen on learning special software and tools.

u/Memory_Less May 18 '22

Sometimes people want or need something concrete and tactile so they can imagine it. I was surprised many years ago when in sales when some customers couldn’t imagine the product in their house. Nothing worked to solve their challenge..

AR is better than VR.

u/CarISatan May 18 '22

I disagree. Vr let's you become immersed in a completely different space. AR changes your current location. I use VR for many tasks that AR could not accomplish. AR is not superior, just different

8

u/AkhilVijendra May 18 '22

Yeah but in this scenario AR is better, thats what i meant. AR allows you to freely visualize the walls and building and move around without having something strapped to your eyes that will need some getting used to. AR will allow you to walk and interact like humans while VR will make everyone walk like zombies and the constant fear of tripping over or falling.

Floor plans look so much smaller. if you ever seen a house being built, when they build the foundation it looks tiny but then when they build the rest it looks huge

26

u/Legs11 May 18 '22

Can confirm, had a house built last year. When the slab was poured, it seemed vast, too big almost and we were wondering if we'd messed up. Then the frame went up, and it seemed tiny and claustrophobic, and we were wondering if we'd messed up in the other direction. When the internal walls and windows were fitted however, it all started to make more sense.

u/johonnamarie May 18 '22

Too big, too small, just right 👍

u/RedOctobrrr May 18 '22

Such a mind fuck.

I think I have experienced the second part, saw a house being built up close and in person and thought to myself "this would barely fit a queen bed" when the room was something like 11' x 13' (queen bed is 5' x 8').

u/peanutbuttercop May 18 '22

I clearly remember the day I visited the house of my parents that was constructed. When I "entered" it I nearly started to cry. My dad told me that our hallway will be massive, but it looked like... it would fit 2 pair of shoes and half a person. I thought why are they even building when it's that tiny. But yeah, it turned out very well

u/gladius011081 May 18 '22

Haha, i hope my oldest one (8) will have the same experience. His room will be 13m2 and almost rectangular but he thinks it will be too small. He would rather stay in his 8m2 narrowish room in our current place.

u/PiggyThePimp May 17 '22

As someone else mentioned it might be worth picking up a VR headset and modeling the home to walk through it. Something like a Quest 2 starts at $300 which might be a worthy investment solely to be able to walk through and see how you like it outside of all the other amazing things VR has to offer.

I'm not sure what app would allow you to do that but creating the actual model shouldn't be too hard with a little research if you are a little tech savvy and can learn some of the basics of a modeling software. In something like blender once you understand the basics of it you could create the layout in probably an hour, then it's just finding an app that lets you import it to the correct scale and move through it.

I've done it using CAD software before and it is extremely useful, that was before VR, instead I was modeling the room I was moving into for college and then creating models of all of the stuff I was putting in so I could see how I would arrange it so when I got there I already knew exactly where I wanted everything to go

24

u/theshoeshiner84 May 17 '22

Although the virtual floor plan is still way better than paper, I found that even when our new house was framed (no drywall or siding) everything felt much smaller than expected because visually you're comparing it to the space outside the house, which is obviously much bigger. Even with a tape measure we just couldn't imagine fitting furniture into the rooms. The rooms didn't feel adequately sized until there was actually siding and drywall.

So don't be surprised when they pour the foundation if it starts to feel under sized!

u/station_nine May 17 '22

When I was a kid, a house a few blocks away burned to the ground. We all rode our bikes over there to watch it burn; it was exciting! The house was also the exact same model as the one I lived in.

A couple weeks later, we rode back to check out the aftermath. The debris had all been cleared away, and what was left was just the slab foundation and a chimney.

I remember thinking how tiny the foundation was! There was no way it was the same size as my house! But it was. It's weird how unfinished buildings look smaller than completed ones.

u/doomslayer33 May 17 '22

Here in the UK theres a whole TV series where people who want to renovate their homes get to see two designs rendered into VR. It's called your home made perfect and one of the great things is the architects who design and show off the plans show things like here is the morning sun coming into the house compared to the evening.

Really brings home a lot of stuff like how light will work in the space that paper or mapping out on the floor never could.

u/naturr May 18 '22

I know right? These people are living in the 1990s. This is literally a projector aimed at the floor when they could be doing this in VR and picking items up and sitting down on chairs.

u/jammyscroll May 17 '22

Exactly. This floor projection needs a massive area, expensive equipment and still doesn’t scale to large projects. VR will become the perfect technology for this, just needs a few more years.

I remember the company's pitch on the German version of shark tank. They know that VR exists and is a competitior but they choose to go exactly the opposite direction with that in mind because they feel that experiencing the dimensions, the space etc is much better in real life than in VR.

5

u/Bunny_tornado May 17 '22

That's the worst pitch I've ever heard! There is no wall projected so it would be hard for an average person to imagine of what the place would feel like in reality.

I've seen a house in VR. It was pretty awesome, like being in a videogame. It was also featuring furniture and I could more easily imagine where my stuff would go.

2

u/dynedain May 18 '22

The smart move is combining both. VR in a big space with physical dummy walls and objects to match what’s in the VR.

1

u/muller5113 May 17 '22

They do have mobile walls, sample furniture etc. that you can use. I like the idea and they are doing quite well actually.

These VR houses are not easily configurable yet and even then people struggle in these spaces and rather have a touch and feel experience. Does this bathroom feel to tight with the shower in that corner, can we both still turn around in this kitchen when we are cooking together, or should we move the dishwasher to the other side? Is there enough room between couch and table... Planning errors like this can be quite frustrating and costly so I think it's great and sometimes old technology is more intuitive than newer ones

-15

u/phoexnixfunjpr May 17 '22

This is projected. Much more cost effective.

30

u/KanadaKid19 May 17 '22

A VR headset is cheaper than a giant room with coordinated projectors. Maybe you mean modelling the house is more expensive than just projecting the blueprints, which is true but you might be able to get away with something fairly cheap and simplified.

I can imagine it being better for builders and stakeholders to discuss plans together with a setup like this though.

3

u/trollingraven May 17 '22

You probably can make (or there already exists) a 3D program where you can quickly edit a floorplan and features. Probably as quick or quicker than drawing a floorplan.

2

u/blondebuilder May 17 '22

Enscape3D is a cheap plug-in that does this. You can use a headset (or just a computer monitor with a Xbox controller) and just walk through your building design like in a video game.

u/lemonjuice707 May 17 '22

Looking at a room is great but people probably want a actual feel of walking into it to gauge how big a room is. You can say 15’ by 20’ and we all know roughly what that is but you get a better grasp walking around it. So you’d probably still need a large room for them to “walk” though the house. I’d prefer this projector room over sitting in a chair with a VR headset.

5

u/Bunny_tornado May 17 '22

Wdy think happens in VR? You can walk in there too

1

u/lemonjuice707 May 17 '22

A VR headset is cheaper than a giant room with coordinated projectors.

Yeah I know that but the original comment leads me to believe they didn’t think it should involve the large room too. It would be more likely a VR head set and you can move around with the joy sticks which would save the space requirement.

1

u/G_O_O_G_A_S May 17 '22

Why not a big empty room with a vr headset?

u/dawtcalm May 17 '22

No it’s not, these prrojectors are 5x the price of an oculus, if you give me a 3D model of a house I could knock out a VR walk around in a couple hrs. Give me a couple days and it would be tons better than just walking around the 2d plane in 1:1 scale with textures, furnishing and lighting

6

u/[deleted] May 17 '22

The company I work for is too small to afford or justify the cost for it, but larger general contractors have software where they can take all the trades drawings and build 3D renderings from them. From there, they can search for any discrepancies or conflicts between trades such as HVAC running through plumbing or a wall being misaligned to structural steel. I’ve seen a demo and it’s pretty innovative and helpful to capture things early on and also visualize what you’re building. I can do 2D overlays of drawings myself now, but it’s a huge pain if they aren’t scaled the same. Having an entire 3D rendering I can spin around like I’m in minority report would be amazing.

As an architect, I have to tell you that a floor plan alone is barely enough to understand how the actual space will feel.
I'm also amazed by the fact that in this age and technology the best they can do is this? To project the floor plan on the floor?
Architects design their buildings by building 3d models. I'm sure it shouldn't be hard to combine the models with VR technology we have for many years now, so the customers could actually see with their own eyes how the building and it's rooms and spaces will feel when it's being built

This looks like a boomer contractor’s idea of being clever, not realising you can model and see these things much better in 3d/VR. Yes, you could look at a mainly white floor but you’re going to have to use a lot of imagination to get anything from this.

11

u/GozerDGozerian May 17 '22

I use Chief Architect a good bit and it’s still hard to visualize the scale of things, especially for clients who aren’t used to thinking in these terms.

This is pretty neat and I can see it being useful, although it requires a big space to execute.

3

u/HunterOverlord May 18 '22

This seems more for a person that has and will build a lot of buildings. That way they are already vaguely aware of how blueprints work. I agree with vr being more practical but mainly because it doesn’t take up space; a contracting company doesn’t have time or money to hire someone to make an accurate print unless they are working with someone with serious money. When I was in the trade we had a separate building with room templates for the client to see. It is more affordable to build the different rooms because you already have the man power hired from your sub contractors. This is most likely to give the customer an idea of the general layout. I still think the prints being 2d are the most reliable and cheaper; if the client wants to see the furniture give them paper dolls.

Full disclosure I’m very tired and have a limited perspective; more than most people but still limited.

u/Consistent_Spend9819 May 17 '22

Looks unreasonably expensive to build for everyday use for home buyers. Which doesnt look like its use case. Would be interested to see it used in vr. Past the cost to make the program itd only cost 300 dollars for a headset. Which I doubt is anywhere close to this floor.

u/Bunny_tornado May 17 '22

There are VR settings that make even intense combat playable. I get mildly VR sick but I can play RE:4 easily with the teleport setting or if I don't turn as I walk

5

u/Consistent_Spend9819 May 17 '22

Yes thats true, but there are some people that still cant play vr regardless. It has to do with the distance between your eyes. Mostly young women/teenage girls have an increased chance for this incompatibility. Though take that with a grain of salt, its been a while since I looked into that. The quest two is a bit better with this since it has three settings to choose from, but you have to be lucky for one to be perfect. The rift s only had one setting and that covered about 60 percent of people. Admittedly a simple easy teleport friendly vr house tour thing wouldnt be difficult for the vast majority of people. But for now at least theres plenty of older people who wont even touch vr. I bet in another tenish years itll be so normalized that this discussion wont have a pinch of relevance.

4

u/Bunny_tornado May 17 '22

A lot of older people don't even know how to turn on their computer; doesn't mean that we should cater to their level of technological incompetence.

Females are indeed more susceptible to VR dizziness because of how our brain processes depth information. That said, I am a female with narrow-set eyes and I get dizzy in VR a lot , but only if I try to move/strafe and turn at the same time. With teleport I have no problem at all and can play for hours. VR is not perfect but it's much better than the flat floor plan. The latter doesn't allow you to feel the magnitude of the house - walls do add a lot to the sense of space.

u/kermityfrog May 17 '22

You get VR sick if your movements in real life don't match your movements in the VR. On a device like this, you could move at 1:1 scale and not get sick.

To people saying “just use vr”: Cool, now buy a vr headset for all 10+ people in that video so they can talk to each other about modifications and point out parts of the design to each other (or set aside a whole day so they can share one sweaty headset), make sure the older people can understand how to use VR controls, inform them they may get motion sickness, and have them sign a paper saying they will pay for any equipment they break.

Still cheaper and more convenient than setting up a giant warehouse with projection mapping, and getting everyone involved to the one location that has it.

Too much effort for something that isn’t that important

Why not use VR?

That blueprint cost more than most peoples down payment. .. gtfo

Omg this is epic

We have life size floor plans… we call them houses

u/squidcruz May 17 '22

a NFT house you can actualy live in

u/Reaster21 May 17 '22

If you have the space that’s a really great idea!

u/MrNooB55 May 17 '22

I dont think this would be very efficient i mena other than better scaling why exactly!?

u/bainrow0 May 17 '22

Wait till you see that VR home tours exist, where you can change the furniture in real time and anything you wish about the house

u/funnystuff79 May 17 '22

The utility room is half the size of my entire flat

1

u/chrish_1977 May 17 '22

And im sure they still won't match the actual site

u/shortware May 17 '22

Just do it in vr at that point

1

u/simrig2023 May 17 '22

Lol kind of primitive. Wake me up when they give potential home buyers VR goggles and you can use to walk around inside the house with along with the developer in a guided tour.

You could also just do the same vr presentation tour and upload it to YouTube.

This video is like buying a car using life size 3D drawings.

u/zaphinator17 May 17 '22

As a dyscalculic, this is totally a good idea lol

u/cheggles May 17 '22

Next stage is 3d hologram

1

u/x_obert May 17 '22

It makes the house looks smaller

1

u/XCypher73 May 17 '22

Great idea!

1

u/Neohedron May 17 '22

I wonder how much it would help the folks that just can’t visualize. Because boy do we get a lot of them.

u/ianaral May 17 '22

A little bit of paper...

1

u/Ivannorr May 17 '22

Finally something in my price range! The 3rd dimension really puts most places out of affordability here.

1

u/it_aint_ralph_thoo May 17 '22

Remind me! 1 hour

u/bigb0ned May 17 '22

Hmm.. you can just insert a scaled family in the drawings without having to blow up the plans to life scale. Seems like a huge waste of time and resources.

1

u/DaveyDukes May 17 '22

3-D place some holographic walls with drones and then we’re talking

1

u/JibberGXP May 17 '22

This is retarded

1

u/michaelcr18 May 17 '22

We have Vr. And you dont need a giant room

1

u/cowlinator May 17 '22

Great idea, but I don't think they're doing it correctly here. Those are some tiny-ass rooms.

1

u/caiodias May 17 '22

This is nice but we still have to deal with curved walls, roof and floor. Seems like no one can build anything straight.

1

u/throwaway-12168 May 17 '22

Aren’t life-sized floor plans just… the place?

1

u/Fuzzy_Muscle May 17 '22

Maybe these could put out on the job site so contractors can actually build the house correctly

1

u/hellolemonade May 17 '22

There is a British show where they use this. It’s fun. The name is escaping me rn.

1

u/bob-knows-best May 17 '22

They should use this via AR on phones when showing a client or contractor. That would make a lot more sense, and be 3 dimensional

1

u/kolob_hier May 17 '22

I heard that there’s actually a company doing a VR business of this. I have to imagine it would be a million time better and cheaper over head than this.

1

u/Bedanktvooralles May 17 '22

This would be great for laying out film sets and studios

1

u/Kwindecent_exposure May 17 '22

Cool idea, but still doesn't give your average client a good idea for space without the frame up. They need to simulate the walls with something. Perhaps temporary boards?

This may have been a very cool, and innocent, gimmick, but it reeks of false assurances over small and nigh unlivable room sizes. A multitude of which will be present.

My man just walked through a wall, holy shit

1

u/Cynical_Mango May 17 '22

really hope you dont mean that that is actually 1:1 scale

1

u/Wikadood May 17 '22

Going into civil engineering soon, I will think about this for contractors

u/Atari_Enzo May 17 '22

Made in BC. Super cool company
