Fantastic VR educational cases

Dayan Harris
posted on 13/8/20
We asked Lookinar to remodel our training program for constructional field. New entrants into the workforce have to go through what we call "the road builder safety training system." We were seeking a more applicable and realistic training tool—so we engaged Lookinar to create a VR training program for our needs.
Lookinar took our existing 15-module training course and converted each into a VR setting. They would physically walk through different construction sites to capture the specific environments so that they could recreate the scene in VR.
They also created video tools for flagger training (the people on construction sites who use flags to direct drivers). They’ve developed a few videos to enhance the learning experience—it’s very different from just listening to someone with a PowerPoint, in a classroom.
They’ve consequently integrated several plug-ins, so we now have functions like online course registration, online payments, and even e-commerce. At the moment, they’re working on a learning management system that enables our clients to easily access online learning aids.

They are extremely easy and fun to work with, and provided exceptional service and customer support at every turn. They were very attentive to our needs and goals for this project and stayed within the confines of a very tight budget. Furthermore, they're passionate about what they do and that translated to a finished product that exceeded our expectations and is vitally important to our department.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

They were very proactive and reactive, and they were great to work with. Whenever there were any bumps in the road or if something didn't work, they were very quick to find a solution.

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

Nothing I can remember

Virtual Reality Development for Software Training Firm

Elena Volkova
posted on 22/5/19
Lookinar developed a proof of concept solution for an event. The team used HTC Vive headsets, Unity 3D, and Steam.

The VR product received positive user feedback and created opportunity for growth. The team’s commitment and expertise resulted in a seamless partnership; Lookinar exceeded expectations for service. Face-to-face demonstrations and training maximized results.

There wasn’t anything within their control that they could have done differently. This industry is fledgling and hardware is changing almost daily. If the team had prototypes of new hardware, that might have helped. But again, that was beyond their control.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

Highly experienced staff. Everything was excellent.

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

Mari Yudgin

They created a VR experience for a solutions platform with a suite of products and services. The intended goal of the offering is to create efficiencies and better patient outcomes for hospitals. It ran through an iOS and Android app and it premiered at a tradeshow. It appeals directly to doctors, surgeons, hospitals and healthcare administrators. The experience drew nearly 2,000 people into the exhibit and compelled them to explore other parts of it as well. Lookinar's philosophy of transparency and collaboration as well as their deep level of engagement, regardless of the size of the client, makes them stand out in the industry. They are highly communicative.

We developed big game project for our client and we needed AR integration there. We had 10 characters in 2D and asked Lookinar for creation 3D models in AR.
We prepared a basic description of our idea, prepared references of our heroes and handed them over to Lookinar. They developed 3D models of our heroes, created a prototype of the application and coordinated everything with us. Then they implemented an augmented reality module and published it on marketplaces.

Executive Interview
Igor Ignatenko
Igor Ignatenko
CEO, Lookinar
Please introduce your company and give a brief about your role within the company?
I am the co-founder and CEO of a Lookinar studio. We provide a full range of immersive technology solutions to empower any business. Lookinar – is a Virtual and Augmented reality studio with extensive knowledge in most relevant stacks. We are a team of designers, developers, 3D artists and VR engineers with an extraordinary vision to amaze and impress users’ minds.
How does your company differentiate itself from the competition?
Many companies are doing AR and VR. But most of them are trying to complete a given task, and create what the client asked without any offering any real solutions. We think that such a business approach is wrong. The goal of our company is to create a product that will help our customers enhance their strong sides. If AR or VR solution will be costly or will bring no results for a client, we will inform them about it and will suggest spending money on something else. Our aim is to help clients and not just earn money.
What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive?If yes, what ratio of clients has been repetitive to you?
We have no specialization in specific areas of the business. We try to use the knowledge gained in one area to create a truly unique and effective solution for our clients in other areas. This approach allows us to create very high-quality solutions. And yes, our customers come back, almost always. I can’t talk about the future, but analyzing the past, I can say that 9 out of 10 clients came back and we did new projects with them.
Please share some of the services that you offer for which clients approach you the most for?
We can offer any Virtual and Augmented Reality experience for any business to create unforgettable moments of connection between people and companies.
Which platform do you prefer to use when developing an AR/VR application? Why?
For AR, we mainly use Unity3D as the main engine for 3D. This platform helps develop a cross-platform application in one click without overspending on our customers. It's easy to use and beneficial platform. It consists of different ready to use libraries and offers excellent technical support. So our choice was made on it.

For VR, we sometimes also use Unity for small projects; however, for massive projects, we prefer Unreal Engine 4 with its incredible ability to work with high poly models. Because Unreal Engine is designed for demanding applications such as AAA games, film making and photorealistic visualization, it provides a solid foundation to build content on all VR platforms - from PC to console to mobile.
What tech stack and tools do your developers use?
For AR:
Unity3d - as the main engine for 3D
Plugins for AR:
- Vuforia
- EasyAR
- ArKit (for an experience of native tech for Quick Look)
- ArCore
- Wikitude
- SparkAR – for camera masks on Facebook and Instagram

For VR:
UE4 and Unity3d
What sets VR development apart from traditional animation or game design?
While creating VR applications, games, and other things, we should ensure that one session shouldn't be longer than 30-40 minutes. If the user uses the app longer, one should understand that there may be some discomfort with the application- It could be a headache, dizziness and so on. We have to consider these features while creating a VR experience. The second most important difference is the complete immersion of the user into the VR app and the simulation of a person in the game space. We periodically consult psychologists to correct the movements of different parts of the human body, the speed of its movement, the connection between movements of arms and legs. Such consultations allow us to create a more authentic atmosphere of total immersion that deceives the human brain.
What scalability and throughput challenges are there with AR/VR? What solutions would you suggest?
Sometimes we create ideas that are unreal to create because of the lack of technologies or technical features of the devices. The AR and VR opened the new world of opportunities, but not all of them can be created today. We always have to balance between the quality of the project and system requirements of the devices.
Will the success rate of AR/VR technology be better or worse than tech start-ups?
We truly believe that tech start-ups will change our world very soon. Look around, and they have been doing it for the last 30 years. However, AR/VR technologies will change the word "world" itself. AR/VR experience will break the physical barriers and will open new digital universes inside our current life. So we are sure that the success rate of AR/VR technology will be better than tech start-ups.
What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of a project?
1) The quality required. Anything can be done speedily and cheaply; or in a long and expensive way. It depends on the task that we have. Sometimes it's easier and better to use ready to use 3D model and spend time only on adaption than creating it from scratch. On the other hand, sometimes we have to create new 3D models because uniqueness is the main point of the project.
2) The time that we have. Deadlines are critical. The more time we have, the more quality we provide. If we have enough time, we can plan everything, step by step. It helps our clients to save money on extra expenses and be satisfied at the end.
3) Long-term cooperation. If the project is only the start point of long term cooperation, we can make it even with no profit to proof our possibilities and show our professionalism in all fields.
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients?
It depends on the project, but more often it’s an advance payment (from 30% to 50%) and then 1-2 fees as per the sprints.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2018?
The minimum project was of 1500$(it was created for our partner and friend of mine). The highest, the maximum price in under NDA, but I can say that it's above 100k$.
