US: Simio on Thursday announced the release of their latest software, Simio 8.136. The software features compatibility with the new Oculus Rift 3D Headsets. The headsets created by Oculus VR allow users to walk through the models built in Simio virtually.
In the past, Simio provided a 3D modelling environment that allows users to construct their model in both in 2D and 3D. But with the newly launched model, users can have an entirely new perspective for viewing their model.
"Simio has always been on the cutting edge of innovation with the software," stated David Sturrock, Vice President of Operations. "This integration with Oculus Rift 3D Headsets allows our users to experience an entirely new perspective of their model."
Outside the Oculus Rift 3D Headsets integration, Simio 8.136 includes features such as geographic information system, GIS, support. This feature allows a user to specify the latitude and longitude values or search for a location by name or by address to bring maps into their model.
