Indian real estate portal Makaan has taken into consideration the large majority of people who love searching for homes online, and created a 3D Virtual Reality Auto Tour.
The VR tool lets online visitors take their buying experience to the next level by allowing them to feel physically present at the home they're inspecting, whether they're searching from their mobile, tablet or laptop.
Powered by 3D visualisation technology from 3dPhy, the customisable tour features a high-resolution and an interactive 3D view from every angle inside a home.
The one-of-a-kind ‘3D virtual tour’ utilises the latest cloud-based solution ‘Auto Tour’ to provide three different views for each home. ‘First Person View’ allows viewers to virtually walk through the home; ‘Floor Plan View’ provides a top view of the floor; and ‘Isometric View’ provides a bird’s eye view, allowing users to rotate, zoom out and see a complete 3D view of the home.
“At Makaan, we are continuously looking for technological innovation to enhance the online experience of our customers,” said Mr Ravi Bhushan, Chief Technology Officer.
“The recent innovations in VR technology space is empowering us to build very thrilling and innovative experiences. With this new and best in class technology, our customers will now have the opportunity to walk through a home anywhere in India from the comfort of their couch.”
