The future of brainstorming: Innowise Group implements the Noda mind-mapping app into HTC’s most awarded VR headset

Innowise Group specialists port Noda – a space in virtual reality for building and sharing 3D mental models – to the brand-new VIVE XR Elite VR platform from HTC VIVE. The application allows users to represent their thoughts by creating 3D maps, patterns, storyboards, flow diagrams, or project plans through body movements and voice.

Noda will be fully available on the powerful and versatile Vive XR Elite Headset, which has become available for pre-order in January 2023. Innowise Group collaborated with the app developer Coding Leap LLC to support the app adaptation to the new platform in addition to the already functioning Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, Steam, and VivePort.

Thanks to the application porting, users will have a unique opportunity to try all the features of real-time mind mapping, benefiting from crisscrossing realities with vibrant, high-resolution XR passthrough. The multiplayer functionality from Noda allows users to build mental models and invite others to collaborate, co-create and explore the paths and structures of ideas. Combined with VIVE XR Elite, this tool will provide a new level of immersion in brainstorming, building concepts, and visualizing thoughts across multidimensional virtual spaces.

We supported Coding Leap LLC with porting, validating, and stabilizing key project features on the new platform, including hand tracking, the passthrough with a full-color RGB camera, and voice recognition. While porting to the VIVE XR Elite, our specialists used the VIVE OpenXR SDK because of its ease of use and agility.

The XR Interaction Toolkit package has been implemented as an integration system due to the built-in Unity support for various headsets, which will subsequently help automatically support Noda on other XR devices in the future and provide more opportunities to expand existing functions.

Why VR is the next big thing for business

3D mind mapping software and Noda-like applications promise to be game-changers in business, management and education sectors. According to studies on 3D exercises conducted over the past ten years (manual dexterity exercises, use of 3D and immersive technology, etc.), utilizing our brains’ ability to interpret the world in 3D can greatly improve learning experiences, simplifying and enhancing information perception.Although learning is founded on the capacity of the human mind, thinking and creativity play major roles in information processing. Virtual reality allows users to visualize thinking processes in a state of sensory deprivation using headphones, VR-helmets and hand controllers, which makes their ability to gain insights more effective.

Mind mapping VR tools like Noda, which allow us to intuitively demonstrate and share ideas in ways that are not possible in the real world, have the potential to fully transform human communication. Visualizing the thoughts of others using brainstorming software will help us avoid interpretation misunderstandings and generate unique ideas utilizing the brain’s full potential.

Experts predict that by 2025 the virtual and augmented reality industries will reach more than $25 billion, and this is not the limit: organizations can deliver training or remote examinations, organize business workflows and improve team brainstorming with interactive communication and immersive learning.

Innowise Group is proud to be part of this pioneeringVR-collaboration and will continue to work on the smooth operation of the HTC VIVE platform, transforming the interaction of human ideas in the virtual world.
