Game changer in virtual realisations

first_imgA new 3D virtualisation platform, using the latest gaming and architectural technology, is now available to the property market. Revvis offers the ability to virtually walk through ‘live’ any yet-to-be-built or existing property. You can accompany and guide a potential buyer, and you can both interact with the property, adding a new dimension to viewings.The user is able to plan and decorate the interior and the garden through a specialised menu. For example, you can view various kitchen and bathroom options; choose furniture and move it around; change the colour of the walls; select furnishings, fixtures, fittings, flooring and tiles; measure windows for curtains; check that their television isn’t too big for the living room or decide where would be best for their barbecue and outdoor furniture to go. It is the only way to truly visualise the property as their new home.Having recently launched in March 2020, Revvis is already working with a wide range of property professionals including housebuilders, developers including two of the top five real estate agents in the UK.Paul Spencer, Managing Director of Sales (UK) for Revvis said, “Virtual tours should be more than just showing a video or walkthrough, but creating greater engagement in the property and ultimately converting it to either a physical viewing, maximising sales both off-plan and existing.“We at Revvis strongly believe the short-term norm of virtual viewings will become the standard practice for estate agents and developers going forward as businesses adapt to a more dual process to qualifying properties, that is by both the agent or developer and potential buyer vetting before a physical viewing takes place.”This link is to one of Revvis’ recent visualisations of Gabriel Square – a townhouse in a gated development in St Albans.3D virtualisation platform gaming and architectural technology VR walkthrough Revvis paul spencer virtual property tours virtual viewings July 1, 2020Jenny van BredaWhat’s your opinion?

Usman retains title on ‘Fight Island’

first_img(BBC) – Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman retained his title with a unanimous decision victory over Jorge Masvidal at UFC 251 which was held on ‘Fight Island’ in Abu Dhabi.The emirate’s Yas Island has been transformed into a closed-off fight zone able to stage four UFC events in July after UFC President Dana White secured it.Masvidal was drafted in at six days notice to face Nigerian Usman and the American could not find an answer to Usman’s powerful wrestling game.The 33-year-old successfully defended his belt with a gritty display to earn scores of 50-45, 50-45, 49-46 from the three judges after five gruelling rounds in an “octagon in the sand” without spectators.Authorities set up a safety zone including an arena, hotel, training facilities and a restaurant which will only be open to fighters, coaches, UFC staff and other event personnel.There are more than 2,500 UFC personnel and Yas Island employees staying within the zone, with all local staff having been in quarantine for 14 days.Usman should have been fighting Gilbert Burns in the first main event of the four-event run but the Brazilian tested positive for coronavirus so Masvidal stepped in.The 35-year-old American found a home for his strikes early on as he started the faster of the pair. He had a clear speed and accuracy advantage in the striking department and he stung the champion with multiple shots during the opening exchanges, while nullifying Usman’s early takedown attempts.But Usman exerted constant pressure on the challenger as he denied Masvidal the time and space to throw his strikes. Usman looked to use his clinch work to wear on Masvidal, with much of the second round spent against the cage in a lengthy and gruelling exchange. The legacy of the round was a nasty cut above Masvidal’s right eye, courtesy of an accidental clash of heads.A huge slam takedown from Usman was the biggest moment of the third round as the champion continued to smother Masvidal’s striking.That pattern repeated through the final two rounds as Usman shut down Masvidal, who had earned his shot at the title with a trio of stoppage victories over Darren Till, Ben Askren and Nate Diaz in 2019.Usman’s victory improved his record to 17-1 and extended his winning streak to 12 fights in the UFC.“Jorge is a tough guy and I give him credit for that,” said Usman.“They call him ‘Gamebred’ for a reason – he’s always game to fight. I’m just a level better. I have more tools in the toolbox.”last_img read more

Why Lakers’ dream of Anthony Davis trade could be quickly disappearing

first_imgNOTE: This article was published prior to Anthony Davis reportedly requesting a trade.There are no sure things when it comes to Anthony Davis’ future. The Pelicans star hasn’t revealed much about his plans beyond this season, instead focusing on giving New Orleans a chance to return to the playoffs.  The problem? The odds of New Orleans trading Davis before the Feb. 7 deadline are essentially zero. It’s back to one offer against the other.Lakers president Magic Johnson and general manager Rob Pelinka promised a repeat of their big 2018 offseason. Adding a player of Davis’ caliber would fulfill that promise and immediately vault the Lakers to the top tier of the West.That’s all wishful thinking, though, and doesn’t reflect the reality of their current situation. The Lakers aren’t just losing without LeBron — they’re pushing any Davis dream scenarios right out of Staples Center. However, with big names around the league talking about adding Davis to their teams and the Pelicans now 5.5 games out of the final postseason slot in the West, it’s impossible to avoid speculation about a potential Davis trade. If he doesn’t sign a max extension this summer, the Pelicans would have to consider trading Davis rather than losing him for nothing — and that’s exactly how the Lakers are hoping this will play out.TRADE DEADLINE: Latest news, rumors, top targetsThe Lakers could be the front runners for Davis, who signed on with Klutch Sports prior to the 2018-19 season. (Klutch just so happens to be LeBron James’ agency.) James has publicly stated his desire to play alongside Davis — his comments forced the league to send out a reminder about tampering — and the two superstars shared a dinner together in Los Angeles after the Lakers beat the Pelicans last month.A James-Davis pairing makes sense for both sides. James needs a teammate like Davis in order to become a legitimate threat for a fourth title, and Davis needs a player like James to help him enhance his legacy.”I’d take legacy over money,” Davis recently told Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports. “I want to have a legacy. All my people that look up to me, the younger kids, I want them to know about AD’s legacy. Championships, the things I do in the community, being a good teammate, playing hard. All that stuff matters the most to me.”Don’t get me wrong, money is amazing. But I think in that sense, money or legacy, I think my legacy will win that battle every time.”The Pels obviously don’t want to consider life without Davis, a once-in-a-generation talent squarely in his prime at only 25 years old. New Orleans head coach Alvin Gentry put it in pretty basic terms. “We’re not trading him under any circumstance,” Gentry said before the Pelicans-Lakers game. “You can move on from that one.”No front office plans to trade away a franchise cornerstone, but if Davis makes it clear he isn’t staying, the Pelicans won’t have much of a choice. The Lakers will pounce if he becomes available, but there is a bigger question for Los Angeles: Why would the Pelicans look to the Lakers for the best possible return? What pieces would genuinely intrigue them?The addition of James only increased expectations for Brandon Ingram, who took a significant leap in his second season prior to LeBron’s arrival. And yet, Ingram has failed to live up to the hype in his third year.He’s struggled playing off the ball, and he’s shooting just 29.9 percent from beyond the arc. Ingram doesn’t consistently create separation off the dribble, and he still isn’t strong enough to establish and maintain position. He also has been unable to prove that he can be a decent distributor. Through 38 games, Ingram is averaging just 2.9 assists per game to go along with 2.6 turnovers. Those aren’t exactly numbers that scream “centerpiece” in a trade for Davis.The remainder of the Lakers’ young core that would hypothetically be packaged in a trade for Davis hasn’t exactly inspired confidence, either.There was hope that Lonzo Ball would rediscover his old 3-point shot (41.2 percent at UCLA), but the offseason work on his form and playing alongside James hasn’t scared defenders. Ball is shooting just 32.9 percent from deep and an atrocious 41.7 percent on free throws. And while there are many parts of his game to like — vision, playmaking, defense — the Lakers never know which version of Ball they’ll see night to night.Since James hit the bench with a groin injury, Kyle Kuzma has emerged as the No. 1 scoring option. He’s shooting 46.6 percent from the floor while averaging 19.1 points per game on the year. He has the raw skills to become a top offensive threat, but he is far from a defensive stopper, and his lack of playmaking has been noticeable in James’ absence.Without LeBron leading the way, the Lakers have gone 5-10, including losses in five of their last seven games. Since James left the floor on Christmas Day, Los Angeles has the sixth-worst offense in the league.Lakers offense (since Dec. 25)NumberRank (out of 30)Offensive rating104.025Effective field goal %50.724True shooting %53.627Assist/turnover1.4925MORE: Latest news on LeBron’s recoveryIt’s too early to make snap judgments about Ingram, Ball and Kuzma. Players develop at different rates, and adjusting to life with (and now without) James is a unique challenge. But regardless of what the Lakers can offer, it pales in comparison to what their longtime rivals can put on the table.Enter the Celtics.It’s no secret that the Celtics have also been eyeing AD. Boston president Danny Ainge has stockpiled loads of talent to go along with a plethora of high draft picks for this very purpose. The Lakers won’t be able to match what the Celtics can offer, especially if Jayson Tatum is involved. (Even Tatum couldn’t deny Davis’ value: “I’d trade me too for Anthony Davis.”)Tatum looks like he has the potential to be a top-10 player in the league in the near future. Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier are coming off breakout performances in last year’s run to the Eastern Conference finals, though both have failed to thrive in new roles this season. The Celtics’ offer could get more enticing if the Kings slide down in the standings (Boston owns their 2019 first-round pick).The only advantage for the Lakers? The Celtics are unable to trade for Davis until July due to the “Rose Rule,” which prohibits teams from acquiring multiple players via trade that signed rookie extensions for 30 percent of their team’s salary cap — Kyrie Irving is one of these players. This gives the Lakers a window to orchestrate a trade for Davis before the Celtics can enter the fray.last_img read more
