TED Talk: VR technology offers a playful solution to the housing crisis

We're proud to announce that the video featured at has generated over 300 K views! What's so special about this video? In the video, our partner Sarah Murray describes the game-changing project for the housing market that was implemented in cooperation with BidOn Games Studio!

Every year, TED works with a group of select companies and foundations to identify internal ideators, inventors, connectors, and creators. Drawing on the same rigorous regimen that has prepared speakers for the TED main stage, TED Institute works closely with each partner, overseeing curation and providing intensive one-on-one talk development to sharpen and fine tune ideas. The culmination is an event produced, recorded, and hosted by TED, generating a growing library of valuable TED Talks that can spur innovation and transform organizations.

The outcome of the first iteration is the PC+VR project implemented utilizing Daydream SDK. The PC editor mode allows users to customize the house, while the mobile VR part allows viewing these changes and moving around a real-life house model via teleport. Users are able to select and add items, move them or delete, choose the décor they like and take a virtual tour around the house.

The plans are: expand the existing prototype project that will affect the housing market and change the way people buy houses, allowing them to cut down the expenses in terms of time and budgets, while get what they dream of! Build a house designed to your taste and needs without leaving your apartment, plan it together with your family or a couple and then watch your idea come to life!
