SAN FRANCISCO, LOS ANGELES, MOSCOW and BERLIN, Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Southeastern shoreline of San Francisco is being reimagined by FivePoint, the master developer of The San Francisco Shipyard and the iconic Candlestick Park site. At over 760 acres, The Shipyard Communities will deliver 12,100 homes with a mix of affordable and market-rate apartments, townhomes and condominiums adjacent to more than 350 acres of waterfront parks, trails and restored shoreline in the City's Bayview neighborhood. The principals of the international award-winning, next-generation creative studio Transparent House (TH) are proud to detail their ongoing collaborations with FivePoint Northern Division.
As one of the largest urban developments on the West Coast, The San Francisco Shipyard provides an extraordinary opportunity to participate in the creation of an exciting community. The Shipyard is a connected community that delivers a world class neighborhood – housing, along with an innovative commercial district providing offices, labs, research facilities, and reclaimed heritage buildings situated amongst acres of public space and sports grounds.
From a residential perspective, TH has been vital in the creation of interactive marketing tools that support The SF Shipyard's sales efforts. From 3D floorplans and renderings to sales applications and videos - all of the applications artfully combine highly crafted, photoreal 3D visual elements with live-action footage. The most impactful tools to date are two photorealistic interactive Virtual Reality (VR) apps developed in-house at TH for use with the Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear and Google Cardboard viewers.
"Thanks to Transparent House's 'Past and Future VR Experience' app, our community members, investors and prospective residents and tenants can easily step into the past to see, hear and feel what it was like to be on an active Navy Base in the 1940s during World War II," said Sheryl McKibben, vice president of community operations for the FivePoint Northern California office. "Then, they can seamlessly transition to the future of The SF Shipyard, and experience the vibrant community of San Franciscans living, working and playing in this bustling neighborhood."
The second VR application is "The SF Shipyard VR Tour," which is a fully stereoscopic, beautifully detailed 3D VR mobile experience set in a condominium flat at The SF Shipyard. By simply downloading the app on Google Play and Apple's App Store and pairing it with any VR viewer, anyone can easily tour this condominium flat from anywhere in the world.
"People are really starting to understand the power of VR to allow us to experience different realities from anywhere, and even interact with them – for example, to change what we see," said TH president Denis Krylov. "The VR Tour app for The SF Shipyard is a great example of how game engines and other technologies can be used to immerse potential buyers and engage with them in ways that build very strong perceptions."
Additional benefits of these VR apps include future residents being able to virtually tour their home during construction, artists seeing what new buildings will look like, and businesses being able to assess the community's strengths for future office locations.

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software securi...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walked through how Octob...
