Along with the many interesting things in the Summit, the Abu Dhabi Municipality featured an Orbit 360 Hologram at their stand.  It was used as the primary medium to describe the new building codes being implemented in the Emirate.  Check out the video below:

3M Virtual Mannequin

3M recently opened their Innovation Center in Dubai with a virtual mannequin greeting visitors at the lobby.  Check out the video below:

Hardware integration comes with the territory. In some cases, this is enough to create a truly immersive experience. As was the case for our 3M installation where the Virtual Mannequin was crafted using purely hardware logic. In this particular case, the client requirements were quite simple: they wanted a projection mapped mannequin that begins to talk once a person passes through. Simple, right?

No, after finalization, the client wanted more A.I. like presence verification, multiple video feeds and queuing. Now since the initial brief was simple detection – the solution was a hardware-based motion detection schema.  With the new requirements, some would say that the best way to go to implement a software-based logic.

Here comes the challenge: budget was locked into the initial quote and we have to implement these additional requirements nevertheless (with the timeframe shorter).  Adding logic programming would’ve been the easier way out but that would entail that we change the entire hardware already installed.  As such, our chief engineer decided to customize the hardware using only a soldering iron, a few additional components and dedication.

The solution worked out for all parties.  The mannequin functioned as it should (albeit additional requirements), the Innovation Center opened with the Mannequin sensing and welcoming guests seamlessly, client/s are happy and we: tired but satisfied.
