VR at your fingertips with Interact

Create advanced real-time, human-centric simulations on any VR configuration for training, visualization, and safety.

No programming skills needed

Empower your teams to easily create virtual reality (VR) scenarios. Interact’s accurate physics engine lets you quickly run complex simulations that incorporate body collision detection and ergonomic analysis.

Unity Interact - Create real-time human-centric simulations

Create real-time human-centric simulations

Amplify your training and safety programs with quick iteration and prototyping. Interact facilitates multi-user collaboration so companies can increase productivity and save on training costs.

Unity Interact - Anywhere, on the platform of your choice

Anywhere, on the platform of your choice

Interact can be used across locations and with a multitude of devices, including most VR headsets, CAVEs, powerwalls, haptic feedback technology (Manus VR), desktops, and motion capture systems (LS suit, ART, OptiTrack).

Key benefits

Codeless workflows

No programming skills are needed to use Interact. The interface has been designed to simplify all the workflows to create VR scenarios quickly.

Improved productivity

Conduct virtual simulations to avoid worst-case scenarios, accelerate your decision-making process, and improve working conditions.

Accurate physics engine

Interact’s XDE physics engine supports rigid and soft body simulation, collision, kinematics, and much more.

Case studies

Assembly training for a Renault Twizy Car

To train employees on specific assembly scenarios through the underbody and into the interior of the car, Renault leveraged Interact to create complex scenarios with extreme precision, in a short amount of time.

Ergonomics analysis of a workstation at L’Oréal

L’Oréal wanted to evaluate the ergonomics of a workstation before it was built to identify ergonomic design issues that commonly lead to injuries.

Nozzle insertion simulation at Plastic Omnium

To avoid manually testing pipe designs with numerous nozzles, Plastic Omnium used Interact’s precise physics engine to simulate the insertion, detect and calculate collisions, and save time and material.

Frequently asked questions

What do I need to get started?

You need a powerful computer running Unity 2019.3 or 2018.4 with a VR-ready graphics card and the Unity plugin for Interact.

Do I need to have CAD software (e.g., Catia, Solidworks, Siemens NX) installed?

Interact is a plug-in for Unity. You do not need any computer-aided design CAD software to use it. With Interact, users can directly import native CAD files to Unity.

Is Interact compatible with CAVEs or clustered VR systems?

Yes, Interact is compatible with CAVEs and powerwalls and can manage clusters and tracking systems, including ART and OptiTrack.

What is the recommended hardware and software configuration?

You need to have a VR-ready computer. The more powerful it is, the more objects you will be able to load in the same scene. 

Minimum configuration: GTX 1070, Core i7, 16 Go RAM 

Interact supports Windows 10 only.

Do I need a VR system to benefit from Interact?

Interact can be used on a desktop, but VR gives you extended functionality.

Does the physics engine support collisions with complex parts?

Yes, the XDE physics engine handles collisions with concave or convex meshes. You can activate collision for the most complex mesh geometries. The precision of the collision detection strongly depends on the tessellation quality.
