On May 14, we were represented with a booth at the Open University at the Lower Castle. In our luggage we had a couple of 3D printers, our robotic arm, as well as our augmented reality sandbox.
Spread over the Lower Castle Square, a lot of institutions and study programs and research projects were represented to introduce themselves. We were very pleased that many of you visited us. Sure, the weather was nice and there was an ice cream truck right next to our tent.
At the booth, visitors were able to learn how to use the 3D printer, and there were many interested visitors who were able to go home with their own printed parts. Our robotic arm, has been blithely demonstrating all day how to 3D scan and digitize objects (to then replicate them with the 3D printers, for example). The augmented reality sandbox was particularly well received. You can interactively change a topography of a map with the sand, build mountains and valleys, and then watch the flow of water on the map with a water and rain simulation. A great way to learn about topography and augmented reality.
