There are several VR headsets types on the market, but the ones that are the most suited for vr engineering are PC-powered headsets because they rely on a powerfull system. Depending on your use case and the scale of your project, you can tailor your system to your needs in terms of processing power, screen resolution, storage, and so on.

Today, we are witnessing the digitization of manufacturing, a transformation so complete it compels the sector to find new business models and innovative solutions to increase productivity, profitability and safety of their employees. This transformation is called Industry 4.0. and deals with the huge amount of data that we are generating every day, and how to use it. One of the most effective ways to visualize and exploit this information is through Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR). This enables new opportunities, especially for manufacturing industries.

Generally produced by laser scanning (LiDAR) or photogrammetry, a point cloud is a set of points in space,. Depending on their density, these points help you visualize the external surfaces of objects or environments, as they enable to have a 3D reaslistic representation of an existing environment.. Therefore, they are often used in the construction industry, along with BIM models.
But such sets of data can do a lot more for your industry: 3D scanning technology enables you to capture a digital copy of an object, when creating a CAD model from scratch can be long, costly and complex. Let’s see why point clouds in virtual reality can be a great asset for your industry and how to use it efficiently.

One of the main reasons some companies are still resisting the need to invest in VR is the lack of clear ROI (return on investment). Yet, some companies have taken the plunge long ago and with the benefit of hindsight, they can now tell how much extended reality (XR) has impacted their growth. According to a recent study from Forrester, Mixed Reality (MR) brought in a 3-year ROI of 177% for decision-makers.
As experts working in VR with industrial clients from 2004, we can give you some insight. Let’s see what ROI companies working in the BtoB market can expect when using XR.

“Digital twin” is very trendy expression, but what it covers is sometimes unclear. This popular innovation receives lots of interest from the industry and promises to boost productivity at al levels of the value chain. Why? Because it pushes back the boundaries of the virtual prototypes, allowing engineers to apprehend the product or system inside their environment. This goal can only be achieved through a VR software, in order to visualize the product in the in-service stage, and supplement the 3D model with simulation data.
