Real Estate Goes Virtual

With today’s toolset the ability to visualise, communicate and populate real estate is real, cheap and more importantly easy to do.

Indusgeeks have uploaded a movie to YouTube providing a walkthrough of the concept. They divide virtual real estate into 3 parts:

  1. Location – Visualisation via Google Earth
  2. Scrutiny – Examining the building in 3D Max
  3. Second Life – Exploring the building within the virtual environment

Movie embedded below:

The overview is especially useful if you are deciding what route to deliver to clients in terms if interactivity and visualising the design. Central to the process is 3D Studio Max and at CASA we are working on an exporter as we speak so you don’t have to rebuild in Second Life.

    Yes.
    I also agree. Geeks with too much time in their hands.
    Who would pay for this sort of thing?
    Its hard enough to convice the clients to have a 3D model rendered for their marketing, and then taking this into a virtual game???
    Ha, ha, ha..
