Neil Johnston, CEO & Founder of Vector Suite demonstrated, at the University of Surrey, how using Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) initial design concepts are now being created in half the time.
He showed how in minutes, using VR & VR headsets and controllers, he could create a brand new car design not only from the outside (2D) but also using VR he could sit inside the car and design its interior too. The platform demonstrated allows you to draw in 2D and 3D in real time - he described it like ' laying down wires in space ' as he created the car's body.
Speaking with Neil, I asked him his thoughts on how AR and VR might be impacted by Cyber Security, we discussed how security by design will become as important as innovation itself.
During the session, he mentioned that Toy Story took 4 years to make, and now with this technology becoming mainstream, companies are already producing short files in just a few weeks !
