Problem to be solved

Rex - Real estate experiences6Usually, sales for new real estate projects start before construction is completed. Therefore, buyers cannot physically inspect the houses and apartments they intend to buy. Currently, they base their buying decision on floor plans and a few rendered images. Yet, most buyers lack the architectural background to understand floor plans. They cannot imagine how the rooms will finally look and feel. Rendered images hardly help as they cannot create a holistic atmosphere. After all, they are limited by only providing 2D representations of selective views. Concluding, real estate project evaluation remains a black box for many buyers.

Solution with mobile VR

Rex - Real estate experiences3 REX is a VR app in the Oculus store serving as a sales tool for new real estate projects.

Use case

An interested real estate buyer visits a trade fair or the local office of a developer after having found some promising projects online. Discussing these projects of interest the sales rep hands over a Gear VR. The interested buyer is now able to virtually walk through the project.

Robbert As some of you may know, I have been suffering from the aftermath of a traffic accident, a severe case of COVID-19, and a transient ischemic attack (TIA). These events have taken a toll on my physical and mental well-being, and I can no longer keep up with the demands of running a VR website and channel. I want to thank you all for your support and feedback over the years. You have been an amazing community and I have enjoyed sharing my passion for VR and gaming with you. I hope you will continue to enjoy VR and explore its possibilities. I will leave the website and channel online for now, so you can still access the content I have created. However, I will not be posting any new blogs, videos, or news. I hope you understand and respect my choice.
