Since the emergence of video games, humans have dreamed of creating fantastic, alternative realities where they can lose themselves and escape from the real world. Over time, this idea has ceased to be a utopia to become a reality in the world of gamers. Virtual reality is now starting to come out of the limited confines of video games to be used in other fields, such as pool construction.
Fluidra Engineering is our company responsible for engineering projects involving the construction of commercial and Olympic pools, the installation of fountains, lagoons and other wellness features in leisure environments, seeks to provide solutions by designing and developing projects for its customers using products that are developed by other companies in the group.
To do so, all of its workers endeavor to keep up with the latest trends and to continue to innovate with the assistance of the latest technological advances in the market. One of the latest advances consists in using virtual reality for the design and development of its projects. For the time being, this technique is in the test phase so it is not offered to all customers, but the Fluidra Engineering team feels positive about the progress made so far.
Thanks to this cutting-edge technique, both our chief engineers and customers will not only be able to see the results before building work begins, but they will also be able to take a walk around a facility and get an idea of what it will be like before work goes ahead.
To explain how virtual reality can be used for the construction of a pool, for example, we spoke to Gerard Lladós, from Fluidra Engineering, who gives a small demonstration in this video:
