From AR to VR: Lateral Vision Are Virtual Tour Experts

They specialise in exploring place and space.

Lateral Vision, who operate out of Tonsley in Adelaide, combine visuals with technology to create virtual tours, virtual reality and augmented reality.

Starting with Google Street View and capturing virtual tours for businesses, they found clients wanted more – so they developed their own virtual tour software platform. Their recent clients include Great Southern Rail (put on the HoloLens, and you can see the train passing through Australia’s desert from the comfort of your room) and Flinders University (an adventure through the uni).

Do you have a tech idea of your own? Here are the reasons why you should apply to our HWA LAB.

Five-day technology event #HybridWorldADL returns to Adelaide in July.

Zombies, Fires and Surreal Cities: Adelaide’s First Virtual Reality Arcade Has Arrived

Gamers, rejoice: Adelaide’s first virtual reality arcade is here.

Untethered VR has opened on Gouger Street, and promises a range of VR experiences from flying and zombie-fighting to a magic elevator that opens up at the edge of a skyscraper. The only thing separating you from the streets below? A wooden plank. It all feels terrifying real.

Corporate groups are also encouraged to visit, with Untethered offering team-building exercises that bring people together through problem-solving. We checked out the arcade and spoke to founders Tom Berzins, Phillip Wu and Tom Baxter about transforming the space (“We had to YouTube ‘how to paint a wall,'” laughs Baxter), their passion for gaming and their earliest VR experiences. Here are some of the highlights from our visit.

This year’s #HybridWorldADL will take place in July in the city of Adelaide. For more info on the lab, and how to apply, click here.
