InsiteVR is launching out of the the W15 batch of Y Combinator. InsiteVR is a simple way for designers and architects to explore and present their 3D designs in virtual reality.
"'The idea was initially inspired by a newly erected building on Columbia’s campus that obstructed the campus observatory’s view of the stars. We were both frustrated by the fact that nobody was able to visualize this ahead of time and let this major oversight slip through the cracks,' said founder Angel Say. The team created something called Vrban which they hoped would allow users to “explore urban environments using the Oculus Rift.” The goal was to allow architects to see what their buildings would look like before they went up.
The company has six contracts in place with architecture firms and branding agencies and even an event production company. The new company allows you to view 3D models inside of a VR experience."
