Due to a huge shift in the manufacturing industry to digitize operations, it is no surprise that the most popular posts were often related to new technological developments.
Oculus Rift is making it possible to experience anything, anywhere, through the power of virtual reality. Our team at THORS experimented with this new system and created an amazing foundry experience. It consists of all of the departments that are in a typical foundry. Using the Oculus Rift, you can understand exactly what is going on in the different departments of a foundry without physically visiting a foundry. It’s a great experience created using 3D models and some genius coding.
