Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0) Impacts Yacht Interiors
"Virtual Reality was once the dream of science fiction. But the internet was also a dream, and so were computers and smart phones. The future is coming". Mark Zuckerberg's predictions may confirm very soon.
Virtual Reality is set to become a billion dollar industry. In 2016, Goldman Sachs estimated that it will reach $80 billion in revenue by 2025, both in hardware and software.
As an exciting technology that allows owners and buyers to get on board of a fully designed superyacht before it is built, Virtual Reality transforms building and buying process offering a totally different level of experience, especially with the tour of luxury yacht interiors.
ANCHOR-VR launches a Virtual Atelier dedicated to the superyacht Owners and industry professionals, founded by Anastasia Yushkova, former Editor-in-Chief of Boat International magazine and The Superyachts book in the Russian market.
Solutions offered by the company include Virtual Prototyping Software, Interactive Exhibition Solutions, High-quality Real-Time 3D Content to assist marketing and sales, Consulting on Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) Strategy, as well as Integration Services and Training.
VIRTUAL PROTOTYPING SOFTWARE
ANCHOR-VR is able to guide a potential or committed yacht owner through the whole creative process, introducing and immersing him in the design and easing his decision making process during subsequent project development.
Using VR technology, a potential client is able to interact with one or more design concepts during, for instance, a boat show, to discover the possibilities of a yacht in greater detail. Using VR configurator, he can tweak the design to fit his exact needs.
Following the signing of a contract, the owner is able to communicate with his project development team using Virtual Prototyping software. This would allow him to discuss subjects such as the yacht’s general arrangement plans, volumes, and its ergonomics, with his design team — each of whom might be in a different physical location — while walking through the design in real-life scale.
At a more advanced stage, a highly realistic virtual mock-up could be ‘built’ to give a clear impression on the design, allowing timely decisions to be made on textures, colors and ergonomics. Last, but not least, the owner is able to store the digital twin of his vessel on a memory stock and share it with family and friends, allowing them a realistic tour of his new yacht while eagerly awaiting the delivery of his luxury superyacht.
Impressive statistics show the high value that VR/AR brings to product development, decreasing construction time by 25%, reducing the duration of meetings to review mock-ups by up to 50%, while having the potential to lower fail costs by up to 75%.
The earlier that those involved adopt this technology, the sooner they discover its advantages. VR/AR removes stress from designers and project managers while providing realism and excitement together with a heightened sense of anticipation and motivation to yacht owners.
ANCHOR-VR will be happy to assist in the exciting journey of yacht interior design and construction, offering the knowledge, expertise and inspiration found within its team of skilled, motivated and enthusiastic VR professionals, together with significant cost savings.
