A brief synopsis of the smart phone app:

About SightSpace 3D:

SightSpace 3D enables mobile viewing of 3D models created in the software program Google SketchUp or Google Earth. SightSpace 3D is integrated with the Google 3D Warehouse, a free online repository of 3D models so users do not need to have the capability to draw 3D models. Augmented Reality capabilities on both Apple and Android overlay the digital models over existing physical environments. View a house on-site before it is constructed, see how a piece of furniture would look in a living room, or show a famous far away building to a student.

SightSpace 3D goes beyond a simple viewer and Augmented Reality to be a powerful tool for exploring models or staying mobile. Annotate models to take notes on the-go, bookmark favorite views, take screenshots, and share notes and photos. On Android devices, have a fully immersive experience with stereoscopic 3D in both viewer and Augmented Reality mode while wearing 3D glasses.

Why did you start this company?

While Limitless Computing was started in 2006, it did not gain steam until 2010 after I finished graduate school and could devote all of my energies to the company. I was an archaeologist specializing in utilizing satellite imagery to find archaeological sites in Central America. With a PhD in hand I had to choose whether to launch it into a full-time endeavor or become an archaeology professor.

With my co-founder, we expanded Limitless into cloud computing and mobile applications. I believe that my background in anthropology gave me insight into understanding what was missing from the market and the idea for SightSpace 3D was conceived: architects wanting to see their designs in the real world.

Was your company started on a shoestring budget or funded?

Limitless Computing was started thanks to the support of a family member.

Who is your competition, and what do you do better?

There are only a handful of companies in mobile Augmented Reality that program their own software engine and the field is largely focused on games. We are fortunate to have the skills to program both our own 3D software and to have a specialized niche in our integration with Google SketchUp.

Why would a small business, entrepreneur, freelancer, etc use your product?

SightSpace 3D is a useful tool for anyone interested in seeing a space before it is renovated, a product before it is purchased, or a location before it is visited.

Mobile Augmented Reality with SightSpace 3D by Limitless ComputingHow could you effectively use these tools?

A person with drawing ability can utilize Google SketchUp (it is free) to complete a 3D model and place it into our application, SightSpace 3D. Our clients have done this to review houses before construction with clients, view landscaping before planting, and in the film industry for location scouting. Without drawing ability, a person can utilize 3D models available for free on the Google 3D Warehouse and place them into SightSpace 3D. These can be models of buildings, famous sites, furniture, cars, and more. For example, teachers have successfully used the 3D Warehouse to show students buildings from locations they could not afford to visit in virtual field trips.

Is this a free app or how much is it?

Our application is $14.99.

Augmented Reality is much more impressive when it is seen in action.

How do you see your company in the next 2-5 years (more products or services?)

I see many more companies choosing to utilize our SightSpace 3D Augmented Reality platform to advertise their products. Looking at a sofa on a website and want to see how it will look in your space? Use Augmented Reality. See a jungle gym in a catalogue? Scan in a code tied to directly to our application and see it in your backyard. There are so many directions for mobile apps to develop. As the hardware continues to improve, what we, as developers, are able to bring to market will make leaps forward. I enjoy pushing the boundaries of technology and we have new apps on our development timeline with new technology.

How many employees do you currently have working with you and/or freelance contractors?

We are, and will continue to be, a boutique firm. Our numbers fluctuate depending on how many projects we are working, and our deadlines, but we are less than ten. I am fortunate to be surrounded by talented people.

What other web based products would you recommend to entrepreneurs, business owners, or freelancers?

There are a number of great, free web based products. I would recommend Dropbox and Google Docs to have access to files while on-the-go and Google Analytics to keep track of what is working on your website.

Any Patents Pending?

No patents are pending but we were just granted a trademark on our Limitless Computing logo by our awesome graphic designer.
