Pulp Society XR App is Virtual Reality application developed by iiterate Technologies for our clients during the pandemic. The entire project started out as an idea to provide an authentic in-gallery experience to patrons without the need for a physical trip or a 2D website.
1. How to convey carpenters design in a more steamlined & effective manner?
2. How to develop a more interactable form of product which clients can experience rather than just see on paper?
Art comes in all forms & and specific care is required to project an near accurate representation of the said artworks for the virtual visitors to be able to discern even the finest of details
Development started with documentation of the gallery and exhibition artwork in custom formats with depth information. Conveying the tactile nature of the samples was the most crucial part and that could only be achieved with a proprietary process.
The Project was developed in Unity3D, using a framework similar to what we used for Lasa. We also did some research into teleportation mechanics in AR, providing the users with more ‘virtual’ space even in lack of physical space.
XR was implemented in the project at a virtually zero cost to the client. The gallery was able to function 100% digitally during the lockdown, providing it’s patrons with a very unique and near-authentic gallery experience from the comfort and safety of their living rooms.
We were able to reduce costs not only in the construction but also during the design process, effectively implementing this XR solution at virtually zero cost to the client.
So what can you use applications like pulp society for? The possibility of use cases is unlimited but here we provide a few use cases to stimulate your imagination!
Pulp Society, which is a real life implementation of an internal research project is still looking for improvement and more diverse clientele to engage. We are going to add compatibility with more modelling applications like SketchUp, Revit and Blender, followed by a wide range of client apps - VR, Web and even MR.
