Explore Homes Featured in the “2016 Parade of Homes” with Looking Glass Inc.’s 360 Virtual Property Tours
The annual Spring Parade of Homes provides an opportunity for people to see a variety of new, custom built homes and communities in the North Carolina Triad every year. These homes feature the latest in technology and craftsmanship currently available. The event is an excellent resource for home buyers to explore the latest home building trends and meet the builders who implement them in their designs.
Members of the Greensboro Builders Association – in conjunction with the Home Builders Association of Winston-Salem – held the regional Spring Parade of Homes on Saturday & Sunday, April 23-24 & April 30-May 1. More than 80 newly constructed homes were on tour throughout Guilford and Forsyth counties for two consecutive weekends.
Looking Glass Services Inc. was a proud sponsor of the 2016 Spring Parade of Homes this year, providing scanning services to all of the featured Builders. You can now tour these amazing properties using our popular 3D Virtual Property Tours services below!!
What is a 360 Virtual Property Tour?
“A traditional virtual tour isn’t really virtual – it is misleading and frankly, can be a disappointment.”
Typically a gallery of stationary, panoramic photos, painstakingly “stitched” together and navigated via some clunky control scheme.
Although the techniques vary, most traditional tours do not allow the viewer to actually move around within the space. At the very most, traditional tours offer 10 or so individual locations to view a space. Traditional photographers create these tours by using DSLR cameras to capture a space with multiple photos that are then hand stitched to form a panorama which is viewed from a player.
A Looking Glass 3D virtual Tours allows the viewer to explore the space from up to 200 locations,seamlessly!! We use an expensive, specialized, high tech 3D camera system consisting of cameras and spatial scanning sensors that, in addition to capturing the space in beautiful, high resolution images, it scans and generates a polygonal mesh. This mesh is used to create a dynamic, 3D model that can be explored online AND in a virtual reality headset such as an Oculus Rift or Samsung Gear!!
