Data exploration has reached a new level. Looker released LookVR, a new app allowing the exploration of data in virtual reality, pushing the bounds of how businesses interact with their data. With LookVR, users can virtually walk around their data and explore it like never before.
“We initially built LookVR as a fun experiment to demonstrate the boundless capabilities of Looker’s platform,” said Wil Gieseler, Product Experience Engineer at Looker and creator of LookVR. “But the more we used it, the more we realized that LookVR offers brand new opportunities that other types of data exploration don’t. That’s why we’re releasing LookVR today, to allow anyone to walk through their data in virtual reality and explore it in a whole new way. We don’t know if this foretells the future of data visualization or not, but it’s certainly pretty cool.”
“LookVR is a fascinating and fun experience with some very compelling use cases that allowed you to see, interact with, and interpret data in a completely new way,” said Carl Anderson, Head of Data and Analytics at WeWork. “This tool also goes to show the power and flexibility of the Looker API.”
Looker is built to adapt to changing needs and evolving technologies. Data no longer is confined to a dashboard. Looker’s flexible architecture and robust API delivers a platform that is only limited by imagination. This made building LookVR quick and easy, and validates the myriad of possibilities for exploring and sharing data.
