Gallery via Virtual Reality
Browse galleries as if you were really there
Oliver Miro created an industry based on technology to help artists showcase their galleries via virtual reality. It has launched during a perfect time where physical galleries now have to be shut down due to a virus sweeping the world and causing lockdowns across the globe.
Though this was not explicitly created to help artists galleries stay afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic, it has now been one of the main reasons it’s getting adopted. Miro created Vortic because when he came up with the idea, it was for artists to be able to showcase across the world instead of packing up and moving city to city.
This type of gallery created a solution to a problem that so many galleries faced. It could not only be shown in multiple cities through virtual reality. It helps showcase with a lower carbon footprint. Vortic is a sustainable way to move city to city quickly with no significant impact on the environment.
How does it work?
Vortic is a subscription-based program that allows galleries to use 3D laser scanning to collect data on their physical space and objects. Once that data is collected, it is then installed into the program. This technology allows others to view their galleries as if they were there but in no way harms the objects scanned.
The dealers or users have the option of allows a replica to be made or for it to be shown in virtual reality only. The dealers have complete control over what happens to the virtual reality. Not only that, but the 3D laser scanning allows them to show off the pieces that they choose to scan.
What is 3D laser scanning
This technology uses a device that can be handheld or slightly larger that takes rapid pictures of an object. 3D laser scanning can take up to a few thousand images per second, collecting the smallest details on an object. It gathers information like texture, color, size, and anything in between.
3D laser scanning can create accurate and precise models. This information can be stored in the cloud, creating one of the best references and records to use in the future. Once the information is collected, the dealers or users can send the data across the world in a matter of minutes, turned into a physical replica, or developed into virtual reality.
This technology creates a sustainable way to make replicas of artwork and send it to people all over the world. 3D laser scanning provides a way for galleries to stay open during this crisis and will quickly gain adoption because of all of its benefits.
Vortic created a way for the art galleries in our world to thrive despite the dire circumstances that surround our communities. It is helping galleries carbon footprint which will indirectly help the environment. The company has also incorporated 3D laser scanning to do a bulk of the heavy work, making the website safe for galleries to adopt and use.
