I have been playing with KOMME®Z Mixed Reality Interface (MRI) devices for a long time. These devices allow you to navigate 3D models using chess-like-pieces instead of a mouse. A long time ago I posted some videos on my YouTube channel.
- MRI for Architecture
- MRI for car design
- TED Project Newport Autodesk Labs Living Homes
- Project Newport software on MRI hardware
- Autodesk Labs: Navisworks and Mixed Reality Interface in Autodesk Gallery
We even have an MRI device in our gallery as part of the Mercedes-Benz BIOME Car Exhibit.
So I was thrilled when Thomas Kienzl from KOMME®Z gave me some information to share.
At this year's Autodesk University, KOMME®Z will be presenting the MRI platform. Visit us at:
- Booth 1100
- Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas
- November 27-29, 2012.
and give it a try. It is a completely new product to “make your 3D data come alive.” As we all know, “a perfect presentation is crucial to winning contracts”.
Why are we developing the MRI (Mixed Reality Interface) platform?
We invented the tangible user interface MRI, and many clients are now using this intuitive input device, but each time we had to customize the content for every single client. To deal with this issue, we are developing the MRI platform. KOMME®Z tools will simplify creation of interactive 3D apps. The good thing is that “programming skills are not required.”
The MRI platform is a software and hardware solution. It can integrate a wide range of interfaces including the MRI hardware interface, tablets (e.g., iPad), touch screens, and other technologies. It also allows the integration of software including Autodesk Navisworks, Autodesk Showcase, and Unity3D. The advantage is that all users can quickly understand and instantly see the impact that their decisions make on factors such as space, layout, and materials.
