From October 26th to 28th we participated at the 28th francophone conference of Human Machine-Interaction with a conference paper and several demos of the non-immersive version of the Hyve-3D.
In the paper we questioned the effectiveness of the Head Mounted Displays (HMD) for watching movies shooted in 360°. We compared HMD to the visualization system of the Hyve-3D that allows immersion without disrupting natural social interactions.
The conference article was published on the digital library of the Association for Computing Machinery. here the link.
Hyve-3D has been presented at the 2016 Aerospace Innovation Forum within the session of innovative start-ups in aerospace.
It seemed to be the only market-ready technology able to support collaborative conceptual design sketching in 3D.
Innovation in Virtual Heritage.
The Hyve-3D has been successfully applied to the domain of Virtual Heritage. It allowed to explore in a completely new way an historical virtual place scanned using the photogrammetry technique. In addition, the novel interaction offered by the 3D cursor open new avenues for researchers as well as other users. Every museum should have it!
LIVING SYSTEMS AND MICRO-UTOPIAS: TOWARDS CONTINUOUS DESIGNING
21st Annual Conference on Computer-Aided Architecture Design Research in Asia
March 30, 2016 – Aprile 2, 2016
The University of Melbourne, AUSTRALIA
The first Experiential Event by Contact MTL was held yesterday at the design research laboratory Hybridlab.
In the presence of the Rector of the Université de Montreal, Dr. Guy Breton, and sixty enthralled guests, Professor Tomás Dorta and his team did a live demonstration of the Hyve-3D system.
This innovative technology developed in Montreal, is a fascinating alternative to virtual reality helmets. It offers many solutions for the field of design, Professor Dorta’s specialty, but also for other fields, such as health.
Watch the photos of the event at the Contact Montreal website.
