Drones Creating Virtual Reality

Drones Creating Virtual Reality

This is an incredible talk, you should watch the first 10 minutes at least – the way these flying robots view and map their environment is amazing.

The idea of them swarming around an office building, mapping and recording everything, is genuinely ground-breaking. Once the resolution gets up to a much higher level then these robots could well give us an amazing solution to creating 3d maps of real buildings for virtual reality.

Virtual reality presents us with some amazing opportunities, but until we can integrate all of the different design software into a single, manageable format, creating virtual environments that people can walk around and interact with is always going to be a challenge.
