Central Point, Oregon – August 6, 2014 – Microvellum Inc., a leading cabinet design and manufacturing software provider, specializing in AutoCAD-based CAD/CAM/CIM technologies and Blender-based design software, announced that they will be showcasing Fluid Designer and the new Oculus Rift DK2 Virtual Reality headset at IWF 2014 in Atlanta, Georgia.
Visitors to the Microvellum booth at IWF 2014 will be able to experience a kitchen design, built in Fluid Designer, Microvellum’s new Blender-based interior design software, in full 360 degree reality through the use of the Oculus set.
The Oculus Rift is a new virtual reality headset that lets users step inside their favorite games and virtual worlds. The Rift uses custom tracking technology to provide ultra-low latency 360° head tracking, allowing you to seamlessly look around the virtual world just as you would in real life. Every subtle movement of your head is tracked in real time creating a natural and intuitive experience. It creates a stereoscopic 3D view with excellent depth, scale, and parallax.
“This new headset from Oculus is like nothing I’ve seen to date and we are excited to be able to showcase our new technology paired with this new cutting-edge virtual reality technology at IWF.” says Clay Swayze, Microvellum’s Director of Marketing.
The Oculus Rift provides an approximately 100° field of view, stretching the virtual world beyond your peripheral vision. Your view of the scene is no longer boxed in on a screen and is only limited by what your eyes can see. The combination of the wide field of view with head-tracking and stereoscopic 3D creates an immersive virtual reality experience.
The Oculus Rift consumer model is not available to the general public yet and is still being developed by Oculus, a company that was recently acquired by Facebook.
“Only a few thousand people in the world have access to this latest model of the headset. If your curious and want to know what the future of interior design looks and feels like, come by the Microvellum booth (4547) and experience it for yourself.” continued Swayze.
