Client review meetings are critical to product design and engineering consultancy. Utilising virtual reality in the design process offers significant benefits in terms of visualisation.

Working with design clients, we are developing a ‘mixed reality’ interface where a physical table will operate in conjunction with the digital environment (shown) enhancing accessibility.
