I'm building a tool to help architects and designers take advantage of virtual reality without having to know how to program. You simply upload a 3D model of the space you're designing and we take care of the virtual reality implementation.

After you upload your model you're instantly able to view the model on an Oculus Rift, Google Cardboard (with your smartphone), web or mobile browser. I'm looking for feedback right now from architects and designers to tell me what they would like to see improved about the software and what they like. Please sign up at to upload models. Let's make virtual reality a reality!!! (sorry im a huge nerd for these things lol)

Here's an early demo:
