Virtual reality isn't just for video games anymore. In fact, VR has multiple uses in architecture, engineering, and construction, and as the technology becomes more widely available, professionals are learning just how impactful VR experiences can be.

 

Although virtual reality has been around for some time, what's changed for AEC professionals is the availability and refinement of the technology. For example, headset makers like Facebook-owned Oculus and HTC have developed consumer-friendly apparatuses that, while still costly, have opened up a new world of VR capabilities, while other key developments offer significant meaning for those in architecture, engineering, and construction. The role of VR in AEC is now plain to see, whether it's using headsets to immerse stakeholders in a presentation, or to gain a further appreciation for the details and specifics of a particular model in process. Best of all for AEC projects, there's continued room for growth in VR's usability and versatility. In order to get ahead of the curve, users need a VR workstation that can harness the raw power of the technology.

DETAILED SPEC SHEET
Mobile VR

One obvious use of VR in architecture, engineering, and construction is the process of stakeholder collaboration. When everyone has the same experience using VR, professionals can more easily communicate designs and coordinate their analysis. This also means AEC professionals are often on the go and in need of a mobile solution capable of handling the demands of VR. The GoBOXX MXL VR, equipped with NVIDIA GeForce graphics*, is an ideal solution for this task, while the ultra-light GoBOXX SLM VR couples computing power with graphic capability and features the new NVIDIA® Quadro™ P4000 Max-Q GPU.

GeForce drivers are not certified for CAD. MXL VR is intended for delivering mobile virtual reality experiences.
