I've just joined CGArchitect, so I thought that I'd introduce myself.
I am the CEO of Extality, which has offices in San Diego, San Francisco and Cologne (Germany). I am an entrepreneur who has previously started 3 other software companies. Also, in what feels like a past life, I worked for Autodesk for 4 years.
Extality is a fairly new company (18 months old). We are focused exclusively on developing augmented reality, virtual reality and mixed reality solutions for enterprise clients. We have assembled a world-class team of dedicated industry professionals who are delivering creative and reliable solutions to organizations facing complex challenges. Our team is deeply involved with the Magic Leap One and other innovative mixed reality devices.
I've joined CGArchitect because we seem to be gaining a lot of traction with large architectural and construction firms. We've built a system that allows us to visualize large scale architectural renderings in augmented reality in real-time. In effect, we take CAD data (Revit or equivalent) and linked construction timelines or build-out phases (eg. Revit + Navisworks, Synchro) and we put the result directly onto the boardroom table (live, in 3D) for groups of people to view and discuss.
I am here to learn and to educate myself on the community. If any of what I've described is in any way of interest to you or your firm, please do reach out here or on LinkedIn. I'm looking to get connected with more people of like mind. The future is bright. There are amazing technology solutions coming soon.
