Walkabout Worlds software enables you to create either a 3D model or 360 virtual walkthrough of a place using only a 360 camera.

Full Story Here. Coming end of April.

The images lack the depth and 3D feeling that we get with Matterport, and the transitions are not really smooth, but a decent low cost substitute for the DIY market (cheap Real Estate Agents that want to do it themselves).
No threat to Matteport thinking in the high end market, but a good alternative for those looking for low cost rather than quality.
But a new signal that there is more to come and Matterport should prepare for new players and a lot of photographers willing to try new experiences. Maybe not this one, but who knows what will be the next one...

@VTLV @jfantin nice find and thanks for the tips! I agree not the depth of Matterport but I think they're worth keeping an eye on, some interesting innovation under development for use cases beyond the real estate market

It's a rather neat idea.

This is excellent for creating photographic 3D model images.
Unlike Matterport, the "3D dollhouse" created here is quite smooth and would be very usable in the multi-family market and by home builders.

I do not think that actually navigating and moving the model around is very useful. You can see models on the sample page that were made with chairs and furniture in the rooms that end up flattened and look quite odd.

Now if it could use photogrammy to automatically detect the room sizes... and not need marking up - that would be fantastic.

Essentially - instead of mapping the pano to a sphere... it's mapping to a custom drawn shape ... which is pretty cool.

This is pretty interesting! Here is one of the examples presented on the Archilogic platform. Definitly not as good as a Matterport model, but this may work well for unfurnished properties.

Walk about worlds example: Main floor of home
