Where Virtual Reality is taking Architectural Design

Imagine designing a building in a virtual environment, similar to what we saw in the movie "Minority Report".

Project Anywhere takes virtual reality gaming to new level, Constantinos Miltiadis, of ETH Zurich, has created Project Anywhere, a real time augmented reality environment where your own body is a digital avatar.

The centrepiece of his proof-of-concept kit are these lightweight Inteligloves that 

Constantinos has developed.

"This is an elastic PLA material that you can 3D print on a home 3D printer. These are flex sensors, we have a wireless module. This is a nine degree of freedom…inertia measuring unit, so it has an accelerometer, gyroscope, and digital compass." 

Using a smart phone which is fitted to a simple 3D-printed headset, users become fully immersed in the VR environment. Eventually (with further development) multiple people could occupy the same virtual space.
