- Uses a 2160 x 1200 resolution, working at 233 million pixels per second, with a 90Hz refresh rate (matches HTC Vive for refresh rate).
- Don’t need a lot of floor space to use the product.
- Easy setup-not a lot of cables
- Comfortable and light weight
- Has earphones-don’t have to use but option for “passive noise isolation”
HTC Vive Price: $799.99
- Lots of space (floor space) is required to VR with HTC Vive
- Plugs into PCs
- 70 sensors to offer 360 Degree head-tracking as well as 90HZ refresh rate (stat is key to keeping down “motion sickness”)
- Swappable foam inserts-for many people using
- Adjustable straps-comfortable
- Superb resolution but configured more for gaming
Microsoft HoloLens Price: $3,000 Blends virtual and augmented reality to make one of the most ambitious launches ever planed. The device merges real-world elements with virtual ‘holographic’ images, meaning you can look at your Minecraft world on your kitchen table, or walk around the surface of Mars in your living room.

They are in the middle of a technological revolution that is transforming an architect’s paper-based work environment to a system of working where documents are digital and approved with mobile devices. “Architects had to physically walk back to the trailer to get the color of that stone sample and sign off on it,” said Todd Win of Rogers O’Brien Construction at an American Institute of Architects technology conference in Dallas. “Now they can look it up, sign it off and get worked proceeding on their mobile devices.” About 100 people listened to a panel of speakers at Tap-In, a conference dedicated to learning how technology is changing how architects design and build. Wireless technology is speeding up work and helps architects avoid trips back and forth from the office to the worksite. For example, Vergent offers mobile print stations. These are large green secure boxes that have LTE strength signals and can be placed in remote work areas that do not have an Internet connection. Contractors don’t have a lot of time to get connectivity to job sites. So they can use the mobile print stations and have Internet access. Changes can be printed and marked up on the job site, Vergent Sales Director Zee Ann Kane said. Then these documents can be scanned back in and a new blueprint can be uploaded. “You used to have to run and go pick up documents…you can now increase the efficiency on a job site by printing mobile,” Kane said. Johnny Stromp with client services for HingePoint said that technology is also helping businesses scale by automating a lot of redundant work. For businesses that are building 10 to 20 stores that are almost identical, relying on paper is extremely time-consuming. “You can create 3D models that are more than just a visual representations,” Stromp said. “You can get all the data in the model, and clone the model and then finish the minor details.” In the old days, you’d be required to redraw everything by hand. But with 3D drawings and tools like Revit, you have everything in a database so you can scale extremely quickly. “The right technology lets you work on what matters while removing the unnecessary busywork.” Brian Lowe of ARK Document Solutions said slow adopters are becoming extremely interested in the use of technology in the AEC industry. They are starting to see that technology can expedite the delivery of materials, insures accuracy and reduces discrepancies and timelines. “We are working in a paper world but we have tools that can deliver documents in your fingertip.”

Not only are drones a trend for construction, but they were in full force at Procore's Groundbreak. Several companies are capitalizing on the safety and ease of drones and are hoping to organize drone data to benefit construction firms. Read more about what drone companies were at the Procore event.
