Fidelity tracks stocks in 3D

Fidelity Labs, the R&D think-tank inside Fidelity Investments, created StockCity for Oculus Rift and the Web.

Stock City is a 3D visualization tool that uses virtual reality to transform an investor’s stock portfolio into a city that conveys information about stocks without a single number or percentage.

It is an immersive 3D app, in that you feel that you are inside the city, but with a simple camera view — no avatar.

In addition to the Oculus Rift, it also supports the Leam Motion device.

Watch a video of the application below.
