This image is from the same site as the Ebola rendering example. It is by Tiago Alexandrino who creates architectural visualisations for private clients. Taking just five or six days, he created this scene using 3ds Max and V-Ray.
I appreciate this for it’s application. Many 3D graphics are impressive, creating hyperrealistic portraits or adding depth to video game or movie characters. But, I think this work represents our potential with using virtual reality in our everyday lives. Imagine this: instead of showing still images, one could create an entire building design for Google Cardboard and allow clients to step into their ideas before it’s ever built. This concept of presenting the future could work in policy-making as well– we could build ideal or unfavorable scenarios and show those as an additional way to persuade others. Showing the future would serve as powerful fodder to instill motivation and action amongst people.
