One awesome product at CES 2013 is a virtual reality system created by Hungarian startup Leonar3Do. Leonar3Do’s technology opens a new dimension in human – computer interaction. It is an integrated software and hardware platform that offers a unique, truly immersive VR exprience in the sense that you are able to see and interact with your virtual objects in real 3D space.
Everyone knows about 3D printing could tell you that any average 3D modeling software has a steep learning curve. But with the new tool from Leonar3Do you will be able to model a 3D object, for example a car, in just one weekend.
Leonar3Do’s virtual reality system has four parts: The 3D modeling software, 3D glasses, eye-tracking sensors and the a handheld stylus-like tool(sort of tripod-esque pen), the Bird. The user uses the Bird to drag and shift the 3D model, choose different tools, colors and textures, dig or carve the figure, or add material to the form. The sensors and 3D glasses allows the user to manipulate 3D objects as if they were right in front of you. Once you’re finished with your 3D modeling, you can export your 3D model and print it using any 3D printer.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
