3-D Virtual Reality Visualization from Chameleon Power
Software company Chameleon Power released an interactive 3-D virtual reality visualization engine for construction and design applications that allows end users to visualize various building products and materials in a space prior to beginning a project. The software recreates a physical structure in a digital environment that contains real building and decorating products that are produced or sold by a building products company. This allows any customer, from an architect to a homeowner, to try out different products and designs to develop a virtual simulation of the desired result.
