We recently got our Matterport Camera a few months ago and I am amazed with the product and the final images it produces. This camera takes 360 degree images and turns them into an immersive 3D rendering of interior spaces. Personally, I am not a fan of traditional virtual tours, where you click on a room and just spin in circles and look up and down. This technology is more of a “google street view” for interiors. you can actually “walk around” and explore the home without even physically going there. it also allows you to rotate the entire floor-plan and view the home in the “dollhouse view” where you can figure out the flow and the layout while having the option to go back to a particular room by clicking on the space. it’s quite amazing and this is definitely the future of real estate marketing.
Other features include: creating screen shots, actual photos of floor plans as well as measuring spaces and creating images with dimensions. The technology is only getting better and new optoins will roll out over time. Exciting stuff!!
Here are a few screen shots of properties taken from the “3D showcase.”
