If you are one of those that instantly imagines a nineties gamer wearing bulky headgear, it’s time for you to ditch these dated notions and bone up on some of the latest applications of 3-D environments. Believe it or not, these technologies are no longer a strictly video game oriented field of tech development with applications in much more practical fields, particularly in real estate.
Joel Burslem of 1000watt recently published an article illustrating some of the up and coming applications of 3-D environments in the online real estate market. In the article he describes such new developments in the 3-D immersive experience by platforms such as Floored.
“Technologies like Floored, Photosynth or movies like ‘Frozen’ show us that a truly virtual reality, whether presented on screen as entertainment or as experience when marketing real estate, is no longer the stuff of science fiction”, Burslem noted.
Other facets of the 3-D real estate experience will include maps and SEO.
