Star Wars Technology Comes To Your Next Home Inspection
Remember how in Star Wars far-away characters used to interact with each other as projection holograms? How would you like to “beam” your own likeness into your would-be home? A company called Virtubuyr has made futurism a concept to play with, providing us for the first time, a glimpse of lifelike-hologram. What this may mean for home inspections?
Well! It can mean the fulfilment of a century long idea, something any buyer would give a right arm to achieve. In short, each buyer now has the option to see him or her spatially thrown into a property that he is inspecting.
For instance, you can see your own virtual clone sitting on a couch or preparing meal in the kitchen or cleaning the attic. A recent article on realestate.com.au suggests that the core company Future Dynamics has created a special version for the property market (Virtubuyr), aiming to make the inspection experience richer.
How the technology works
The technology uses a scanned image of the person and then projects it like a 3D hologram, thus making the eventual impression very realistic. While inspecting our dream homes, we would have engaged ourselves in more than a passing thought- How would I adjust into the home, how would I look sitting on the couch and surfing television? Well, the effect would be much like an astral projection of one’s own self (much like the proverbial Doppleganger).
The technology is also quite adept at improvising and so you can ask for a leaner or a more attractive version of yourself.
I feel it to be like a leap of faith. It’s a deep human desire to inhabit certain desirable spaces. Finding one’s own hologram merrily floated in your would-be home is like a cool dream idea, but will it feel more real?
Would it make a difference to you to see yourself in your new would-be dining space?

Note: The new technology is expected to be first used in Sydney on 1st April 2014… 🙂
