I like to think of myself as being pretty skeptical. Or maybe, I should say that I find myself growing more skeptical. As the years go by, every piece of technology I try but discard because it fails to deliver on its marketing promises just makes me that much more skeptical. So I’m thrilled to report on a new technology, a unique 3-D camera made by Matterport that does an amazing (not yet perfect, but hey, neither are we) job of creating virtual layouts, virtual home tours, and virtual walkthroughs in one awesome embeddable link, like this one (shameless self-promotion ahead) for our listing at 239 Bonita:
What I love About Matterport 3D
The turn-around was fast. We had to give the company with the Matterport 3D camera technology a little heads up (but right in line with normal real estate service lead times) to schedule our Matterport Scan day but Nicholas Khoe of ING Studios was great to work with. Both he and his assistant were professional, friendly, and easy to work with both over e-mail and on-site. Once the scan was done, we had it in our inbox in just a few hours. Which is amazing!
What I can’t wait to see Get Better
Size. I can’t wait to see the files get smaller as their compression technology and magic algorithms do the magical math stuff that made my eyes glaze over in high school and college. But programmers, apparently, thrive on such things and I have no doubt that the engineers at Matterport can make it happen.
