Microsoft is All Set to Showcase VR on Windows Platform

3 min. read time

To create virtual reality (VR) experiences, the transition from 2D to 3D paradigm is more imperative as 3D shape is the only visual property that has enough complexity to ensure accurate identification of real world objects. Therefore, Microsoft has acquired Donya Labs, the Swedish 3D data-optimization vendor, in order to boost 3D innovation and also to make Windows instrumental in bringing 3D content consumption and creation to the mainstream.

Simplygon 3D platform

Simplygon is automatic 3D data-optimization software by Donya Labs that enables you to rapidly create all the level of Detail (LOD) models for your game, representation meshes and much more, automatically. Thus, it saves you from doing boring manual labour to generate optimized assets for mobile or any kind of platform, such as VR platforms. It is typically used by game developers to augment the visual fidelity of their virtual realms and extract better performance. Now, it is all set to bring 3D to everyone, i.e., accessible to the masses.

Bringing 3D for everyone

Microsoft is confidently relying on its forthcoming Windows 10 Creators Update to help bring 3D, augmented reality (AR) and VR experiences around the consumers who matters the most. You will now be able to create 3D models and capture real-world objects using your smartphone cameras via the Paint 3D app. You will also be able to share your creations at Remix 3D, a new online hub. Office will also be a part of the game and its features will also work seamlessly with 3D models. Now, you will be able to add eye-catching effects to your office content by embedding 3D models into Excel, Word, PowerPoint files.
