Nvidia Omniverse Enterprisewheatleysiliconangle: Nvidia Makes Omniverse, a Real-time Collaborative Design Tool, Generally Available, and Now Allows Developers to Create Hyper-realistic, Interactive Ai Avatars.
NVIDIA’s latest offering for developers has arrived! They have created Omniverse — a real-time collaborative design tool that enables teams of designers and developers to work collaboratively in virtual reality. The purpose of this tool is to enable creativity through collaborative design.
Omniverse allows users to design and create games in virtual reality. This is accomplished through features like 3D object creation, editing, and mesh manipulation all within a VR environment. The team from Nvidia worked with the tool’s users to build a tool that they themselves wanted to use and are excited about. These efforts resulted in a tool that will allow professional designers to transform their wildest imaginations into reality.
While Omniverse has been around since last year, the majority of its functionality has now been exposed through a developer tool that was given to all NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV developers. This enables developers to manipulate their creations in VR regardless of whether the end result is game related or not.
Instead of being limited by physical constraints, users can create a full-blown interactive experience right within Omniverse. The purpose of this is to allow designers and developers to work together in real time and iterate on ideas as they go.
Omniverse is not the end of the road for Nvidia. They are inviting those interested to continue contributing to their SDK. They want to see what you can do with Omniverse and are encouraging anyone who has developed a compelling design or prototype to share it.
In their press release, NVIDIA stated “The community has already been adding a wide range of functionality that includes 3D object creation, editing, geometry manipulation and most importantly, multiplayer co-op play. We are working with them to integrate this functionality into the SDK, adding new capabilities and more, enabling an even stronger creative community.”
Great tools like Omniverse bring developers of all kinds together and allow them to create a wide range of projects. The possibilities are endless as teams are able to develop entirely new ways of playing and interacting within virtual worlds.
Omniverse is just one way in which NVIDIA is investing in VR. They also have their very own VR development lab. There they work with developers to bring new VR experiences to life and have also opened it up to the public.
