This blog is dedicated to explaining the impressive simulations that can be achieved with virtual tours , i.e. viewing rooms or objects remotely using virtual reality googles . 😊 Virtual tours can be viewed on all smart devices connected to the Internet; it does not require special software, and only a tablet, computer or phone is needed. However, there is another way to go on a virtual tour that the Matterport software provides – through virtual reality googles. Read about the pleasure-filled reality in this blog.
What is virtual reality?
Often, a virtual tour and virtual reality are considered one and the same. However, this is not entirely true, since VR googles are needed to immerse yourself in virtual reality, and a virtual tour provides a 360-degree 3D view also from smart devices. Virtual reality (VR) is a simulated experience that is similar to the real world, or vice versa, completely different from it. The applications of virtual reality are vast; it can be used for entertainment purposes, such as video games, but it can also be used for educational purposes, such as in the medical or military field, and in business – an example is the use of virtual tours to view real estate in detail from a distance.
Currently, the standard virtual reality device is virtual reality googles, which also create realistic images, sounds and other sensations that simulate the physical presence of the user in a virtual environment. A person using virtual reality equipment can see the artificial world, move around in it and interact with virtual functions and objects. A particularly realistic effect is provided by VR googles, in which the display is mounted on the head. As a rule, virtual reality also implies audio and video feedback.
Matterport virtual tour mode
Virtual reality is one of the best ways to experience Matterport Space’s VR experience . By this we mean that when using VR googles, we discover a particularly impressive Matterport virtual tour mode, which provides an even more realistic 3D immersive experience compared to a virtual tour from a conventional smart device.
Matterport VR Mode:
Highest visual quality: Matterport Space is best enjoyed with the Oculus Quest virtual reality googles , as they offer the highest resolution.
The ability to go anywhere: visitors can walk literally anywhere in the world for which a virtual tour is designed; in addition, in virtual reality mode, you do not need to use the familiar VR arrow path that can be seen on other smart devices.
360-Degree View: Visitors can enjoy a full 360-degree view and experience as close to the real environment as possible.
The new VR mode works best with Oculus Quest VR googles. No need to install an app; just go to Space in the googles browser and press “Enter VR”.
