Chipmaker Nvidia does what smart companies do. It uses its own resources to perfect smart technology. And it does it in a pioneering manner. In the construction of its new corporate headquarters in Santa Clara, California, it is using virtual reality headsets. According to The New York Times, architects are using Nvidia’s Graphics Processing Units (GPUs), the company’s interactive rendering software Iray, and virtual reality headsets. Remarkably, these tridimensional renderings would have been simply impossible to use a year earlier, just because VR headsets were still unavailable. But now they are being used for the $380 million building, set to be opened in 2017. “I was pretty much like a kid in the candy store,” said, unsurprisingly, one of the men involved in the project.
