About VR

LHB is creating virtual reality (VR) experiences for you to visualize and “feel” what your project will be like. VR can help engage your stakeholders into the design process, and improve plans before construction begins. We also offer further VR immersion by using our Oculus Rift VR headsets or a Google Cardboard. Please contact us, if you would like to experience more!

Oculus Rift is a VR tool that takes 3D imagery to the next level. Oculus’ display technology combined with its precise, low-latency constellation tracking system enables the sensation of presence – feeling as though you’re actually there. This remarkable technology offers you a way to navigate and view your project before breaking ground.

Google Cardboard , a VR tool that resembles the old View-Master, allows you to view 3D images and renderings from your smart phone. Equipped with a pair of 40mm focal distance lenses, Google Cardboard uses split screen optimization to create a 3D effect. Google Cardboard is a trademark of Google Inc.
