When handling 3D models, the angle has to be turned by using a mouse. This problem doesn’t exist in a virtual environment. One merely turns one’s head and looks towards the other side – just as if one were carving a real sculpture.
Designers will benefit from this feature in their work, but more importantly, the glasses are an excellent way to present a design. The customer can walk through a furnished virtual room and look freely around. Alternative designs can be viewed in the virtual world – quickly and economically. The functionality of the premises can be explored in advance and in an impressive way.
Similarly, it can also work in urban planning. The augmented reality (AR) is a way to show on the spot what a plan will look like when implemented. This will not only help designers and decision-makers, but also provide opportunities of participation for citizens.
