    Today on Buildipedia, we've got David Esber from. Envision VR and who will tell us what he does. It's all about virtual reality and selling real estate. As I understand. Well, welcome, David. Thanks so much for joining us.

    David

    Hey, nice to meet you. Thanks for having me.

    Mat

    So maybe if you can start telling us who you are and what you do and tell us a little bit about Envision VR.

    David

    I'm Dave. I'm one of the co founders of Envision VR and Envision VR is a platform for any 3D designer to create immersive experiences using their traditional modeling workflows. So we've got a platform that lets any architects or architectural visualization artists turn the 3D models they create from Revit, SketchUp, 3ds Max, whatever it is, into a one to one VR experience that you can view on any device or on web.

    Mat

    You've got a bit technical there on us. So essentially you let, so because a lot of architects. Design in 3d these days. So, you know, our practice uses ARCHICAD, but a lot of practices probably bigger, more used as Revit, I think, I can't remember. But you're essentially taking that model and turning it into something that looks real.

    David

    Yeah, exactly. So you can load that ArchiCAD model up onto our platform, and then you can be walking through it in a VR headset or on a phone or a tablet using augmented reality tracking.

    Mat

    And before we delve in too much further, I just wanted to ask you, and we often ask our guests, is there an inspiration you want to share a person or a book or whatever?

    What would you like to share?

    David

    Yeah. You mentioned that. I was just thinking, I've been, I've got a toddler, so I've been reading a lot of Dr. Zeus lately. Last week I was reading scrambled egg super where Peter T Hooper uses a couple of horses and a very long stick to pry a mountain top off. Yeah. So it was a great opportunity to teach the two year old about leverage.
