MediaCityUK’s Tomorrow is virtually here
Manchester creatives are set to get a glimpse of Tomorrow, today after an app that gives a virtual tour of MediaCityUK’s new £20 million Tomorrow development goes live.
The application, which can be used on full screen mode, or through a Google Cardboard viewer for a more immersive experience, gives a 360 virtual tour of how the new offices for the region’s burgeoning creative and digital industry will look.
MediaCityUK appointed Greenhouse based creative agency Fuzzy Duck to develop the app incorporating the Google Cardboard concept to showcase the imaginatively designed 12-storey building which will include office space from 2,000 sq ft – 8,000 sq ft. It will also feature ‘23:59’, a flexible co-working space spread over ground and mezzanine levels with meeting space and on-site café.
MediaCityUK’s Asset Manager Lynn Haime said: “We’re initially promoting the app with the Google Cardboard to property letting agents but of course it can be used on all devices for interested agencies and individuals to view. The concept will evolve to the oculus rift version that will take it the next level of detail and reality.”
Fuzzy Duck’s Creative Director, Dave Hartill added: “Tomorrow is a futuristic and individual offering that justifies a state-of-the-art campaign that realistically reflects how the finished product will look. Early feedback has been really positive and the Oculus Rift version which will follow towards the end of March will take it to the next level.”
The development, located at the entrance to MediaCityUK on Broadway, is currently under construction and will be completed this Summer.
