GRAND RAPIDS, MICH., USA—June 1, 2017—Configura, maker of CET Designer software, heads to NeoCon 2017 this June 12-14 at The Merchandise Mart in Chicago ready to exhibit 360-degree walk-thru videos for its space-planning solution, CET Designer.

CET Designer 8.0 includes the new technology.
Configura recently announced the release of CET Designer 8.0, which includes the ability to create 360-degree walk-thru videos. Also with CET Designer 8.0 are enhancements to Configura’s Virtual Viewer VR Extension. The VR Extension along with a VR headset (such as HTC Vive or Oculus Rift) offers an immersive, virtual reality experience of a designed space. Support for HTC Vive headsets launched with CET Designer 8.0 and will be demo’ed by Configura at NeoCon. Oculus Rift headsets already are supported by the Virtual Viewer VR Extension.

“Democratized” VR and Google Cardboard headsets giveaway plus Yulio drawing.
Meanwhile, Configura’s recent collaboration with Yulio “democratizes” VR through the use of inexpensive 3D headsets such as Google Cardboard. Configura will demo the Yulio technology and be giving away Yulio-supported Google Cardboard 3D headsets at NeoCon. Visitors to Configura’s booth also can enter a special Yulio-sponsored drawing for a Samsung Gear VR headset and a yearlong Yulio subscription.
