Virtual Reality and the Evolution of Communication

We design for humans—that’s no secret. But designing with humans is, arguably, a more difficult feat. Design, in most forms, is an isolated process, housed in the mind of a single creator, distinct from review sessions and feedback gathering. As technology has evolved, we’ve gotten better at communicating our vision to others: sketches became cartoon-like computer-generated images, which became photo-realistic 3D renderings.

The emergence of Virtual Reality technology in the A&D community is thus less of a revolution (as many will claim), and more of an evolution. Its advent hints at a future of design collaboration that sounds more like The People’s Church than a lone Adele-esque solo. Virtual Reality’s status as a design trend comes in second to its status as a communication trend. While the ability to visualize an image as a 3D space has traditionally set collaborators apart, Virtual Reality brings everyone to the discussion.

Leading the industry as a design communication tool, YulioVR plugs directly into an architect or designer’s established workflow (Revit, Max, SketchUp, you name it), turning 3D models into 3D spaces. With communication as the holy grail, Yulio connects team members and clients with live-stream conferencing, made possible by their steadfast dedication to the practical world of mobile VR.
The future is ours to design. Skeptics, hush: technology isn’t replacing human connection. It’s evolving it.
