Everyone has heard of virtual reality or augmented reality but have you ever heard of mixed reality visualization? Mixed reality is an overlay of synthetic content on the real world that is anchored to and interacts with the real world. At BIG RED DOG, we are always looking to push the limits of imagination and technology to provide our clients with the best product experience.
CLIENT PROJECT: We were very fortunate that our client Lynd was forward thinking and interested in having us create a mixed reality experience. BIG RED DOG’s initial task was to develop multiple 360-degree panoramic views at specific elevations that we would gather with our drones. This would give them the data they needed to figure out which buildings had views to the Lake. What was missing was some way of showing the other proposed buildings that would potentially block some if the views.
OUR SOLUTION: In order to solve this problem, we developed a 3D model which allowed us to accurately visualize the proposed buildings to scale prior to development. Our interactive user interface combined 360 degree angles for different buildings at proposed floor elevations, incorporated CGI buildings at geo-referenced locations that matched the drone imagery, added a site map to quickly select a building location, a drop down menu to select floors and the corners in different buildings, a google aerial map showing line of sight from the specific corner you select. It is a very fun interactive tool that really impressed the client. This also provided Lynd with realistic data they could use internally for rent studies and presentations to investors.

The uses for drone technology will continue to grow across many markets. BIG RED DOG will be there to provide these innovative solutions to our clients. If you want to find out more about any drone solutions BIG RED DOG can offer you, please contact us.
