By Merry Richter

Have you ever wondered how augmented and virtual reality work? The technology behind these two mesmerizing is mind-blowing. In creating virtual environments, designers use reality capture (the science of remote sensing/RC) to scan and map the actual world. Highly detailed 3D models of buildings, objects, and cities are constructed from millions of data points.

The 3D assets are then imported into augmented and virtual reality software, like Openspace AI – where they are optimized, textured, and prepared for a fascinating experience. The result is a digital world so realistic you feel like you’ve been transported. Augmented and virtual reality are the perfect mediums for bridging the gap between the digital and physical worlds.
