Point clouds intrisically lend themselves to VR given their 3D nature. Current tools for viewing and manipulating point clouds are predominantly 2D. VR with positional tracking provides a more intuitive way to view and manipulate point clouds.
This project is being developed on HTC Vive hardware. Features will include:
- View colored point clouds from a first person perspective.
- Positional tracking moves the user through the point cloud.
- Rotate and scale the point cloud using the Vive controllers.
- Manipulate the point cloud (e.g., segment, cull, etc) using the Vive controllers.
