Can we understand 3D information more? How do we know that? While 3D information appears more realistic in many cases, does it follow that we ‘get-it’? How many times have you watched people unfamiliar with a subject ’not get it’ and then proceed to gleen through material that causes some of us to scratch our [...]

Simulation is increasingly being used as a training tool. But there are few directions and bearings for training and educating 3D professionals and organisations wishing to use these technologies. While geographic information systems (GIS), computer aided-design (CAD) and other manufacturers support training on the technical side, it remains difficult to find people and programs that [...]

A picture is worth a thousand words – we have all heard it. But there is evidence that students learn quicker and better through augmented reality. As Jose Dolz of the ARLAB explains, “…For instance, in mathematics and geometry the main advantage of using an AR system is that students actually see three dimensional objects [...]

At the ISS Symposium 2012 in Berlin today, J. D. Worner, CEO of the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) welcomed attendees to the event and quickly set the tone, stating that curiosity was a major goal of the efforts involving ISS. “We only know about 4% of the universe,” he said. Interestingly, I found myself reflecting back [...]
