algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Virtual Reality in Architecture:
Establishing an Immersive Modeling Environment
lingMatrix is a Rhino plug-in developed for VR modeling for Architectural designers. As proof of concept, it bridges the Oculus DK2 and the Rhino 5.0 sr12. Furthermore, lingMatrix engages several methods of command input as VR user interface, including an Xbox 360 controller, Microsoft .Net Framework Speech Recognition, and a Thalmic Labs Myo Gesture Control Armband, which together serve as alternate inputs to the traditional mouse and keyboard.
lingMatrix is an application product of an Architectural Master Research Project presented in The University of Florida, done by Xingyun Jin and Mingming Ding. It is currently tested only on Oculus Runtime 0.6.0.1 beta, Rhino 5.0 sr12, and Windows 7/8.1.
