FEATURES

The Constructive Labs Immersive Content Engine is a
complete Virtual Reality platform for creative content development.
From visual appearance to deployment, no textual programming is required to create full multi-user VR experiences. Creatives can instead focus entirely on content development and publish directly to the cloud.

MULTI-USER

The multi-user authoring process is fully collaborative with no additional resources and expertise required. Natively multi-user without the need for network programming.

CONSTRUCT

Make an object or world, change it, play with it, and give it back.

VISUAL PROGRAMMING

Don't code. Rather, combine simple objects to make more complex ones. Specify the properties and interactions of any object.

CREATE VR IN VR

Our tools are optimized to be used inside VR. You never need to take your headset off or painfully switch between VR and 2D tools.

SECURITY

Explicitly define how other users interact with you and the things you create.

BEAUTIFY

Safely create Shaders, Materials and Procedural Geometry, or import existing assets to make your experiences visually exciting.
Immersive Content Engine
Simplifying the process of creating professional quality VR applications

Users can construct content inside VR using a combination of Direct Manipulation and Visual Programming using a completely intuitive, shared, and innately multi-user experience, making non-VR tools redundant.

Case study
Developing a TV set in Constructive Labs

Case study of using the Constructive Labs platform for the pre-visualisation of a set during the development of a prime-time TV show in the UK. The system allowed us to work as a team in virtual reality even when we were in different physical locations.

TECHNOLOGY

The Constructive Labs Immersive Content Engine transforms content development for VR.
RENDERING ENGINE
Super-fast cross-platform native rendering engine written in C++. Currently supports the HTC Vive, with Oculus, Android and Vulkan support close at hand.
CONTROL LAYER
Super clean API against our distributed Actor Model implements multi-user functionality straight out of the box, with no network programming hassle.
DISTRIBUTED SERVER
Message/Actor based distributed model provides back-end scalability and inter-world connection.
PLUG-IN EXTENDER
Break the limits by enhancing the platform safely using our straightforward APIs in Javascript or Java.
PERSISTENCE ENGINE
Store objects and worlds in Amazon S3. Run them on your own personal server instances or on our infrastructure for no-stress deployments.

APPLICATIONS

Simplifying the process of creating professional quality VR content aids many industries. We are keen to collaborate and explore original and creative projects with partners in markets such as:
CREATIVE & MEDIA
Artists, musicians, graphic designers, product designers and other creative media instigators deeply understand the creative process. Our tools allow them to work "hands on" constructing Virtual Reality content, rather than working through intermediaries.
CONSTRUCTION
With architectural visualization, you can bring your clients into buildings pre-construction as well as co-create and modify designs with them "in-world". For realtors or others involved in the sale of pre-construction assets, VR enables buyers to have confidence in their purchase.
RAPID PROTOTYPING
Rapid prototyping for industrial product design is emerging as a premier application for "new VR". The Constructive Labs platform enables small teams of content developers to produce functional, interactive, rapid product prototypes with less effort than was previously possible.
GAMING
The minecraft generation grew up making 3D content. Now maturing, they deserve an open and creative environment allowing them to hone their core creative skills for generating the next wave of VR applications and experiences.
MEDICAL
VR-based therapeutic interventions are producing encouraging results in many areas including trauma recovery and post-traumatic stress therapy. Our tools can be used to improve outcomes by generating unique VR reinforcement experiences.
EDUCATION & TRAINING
High-quality VR experiences energize the creative learning process. Our platform accelerates the instructional design process for the classroom, online, or workplace training. We allow content development for less cost per unit than previously possible, opening new markets for VR curriculum.

ARCHITECTURE

The architecture of the Constructive Labs platform is fundamentally different from competing web and game-engine based technologies. Using a single, message passing, graph-based, simulation model, we present a single unified object model which extends cleanly across client and server engine nodes. All participating engines in a network of Constructive Labs nodes share the same model, allowing for smooth movement of content objects between the nodes. Massive parallelism, combined with an architecture which maps well to modern hybrid CPU/GPU based machines, allows for the development of multi-user applications with unparalleled interaction fidelity and little lag. Self-similarity, applied at all levels of the stack, results in clean APIs and tool interfaces, providing an experience which allows users to create multi-user applications as easily as creating a single user application.
