Experience Cluj

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

 CITY VR Tour our own product and is the first Virtual Reality application of a city in Romania, currently present in Cluj-Napoca. The application is an interactive computer-generated experience taking place within a simulated environment (virtual reality) and offers anyone fond of new experiences the chance to make a “live” impression of the atmosphere of a specific location. Using High Tech VR glasses, they can move above the city in any direction and observe every detail they consider important and attractive.

THE CHALLENGE

 The application needed to not only showcase the sights and attractions of the city, it also needed to enhance the experience for the user. We had hardware work together with the software side in order to better convey the experience for the users.

The initial shooting for CITY VR is done with a 360º camera at 8K resolution, connected to a drone. The flight path of the camera is taken as a reference for creating the route model.

The tilt of the camera is transmitted to an Arduino processor via the USB interface. The processor, being connected to a gyroscope attached to a specially designed chair, compares the inclination of the virtual camera to that of the chair and, when necessary, tilts the seat in the desired direction until the target position is attained.

Modeling is done using a 3D modeling software, 3DS Max. The initial model is optimized, after which textures are created. The completed model is exported to the VR application program, Unity.

The illusory environment that completely surrounds you and the chair that simulates the movements from the means of transportation you are traveling with above the city give you a full immersive experience. The user can explore and experiment in VR the atmosphere, the weather, the amenities and much more of the future destination.
