VVD: Volumetric Visualization Device - preorder
Visualize your 3D content as real tridimensional "holograms" in one touch with our Volumetric Visualization Device.
Visualize the future with VVD
VVD is a patent pending solution which allows you to create a real tridimensional volumetric visualization of 3D content.
A volumetric display device is a graphic display device that forms a visual representation of an object in three physical dimensions, as opposed to the planar image of traditional screens that simulate depth through a number of different visual effects.
It's all very easy to use, just load any 3D model (an .STL file on your USB drive, for example) and press "View"! Unlike holograms, that you can only see from a certain range of angles, a volumetric visualization can:
be explored from any point of view
more people can watch it at the same time, becoming a shareable experience
no need for additional glasses, reducing viewers eye fatigue and making this solution simple and suitable for everyone.
Shipping time: 45 days
Medical and orthodontic applications
Including the visualization of Dicom scans and 3d scanned models from desktop or intraoral scanners or CAD models, and the sharing of the 3D visualization with colleagues to discuss applications or strategies, or with the patient to explain an intervention, or to presenting and discussing "case studies" during conferences and meetings. In this field the high compactness and portability are excellent strength points.
VVD becomes an indispensable tool in fields such as design and modeling allowing to view files and verify their measurements and proportions and their correction before they are made with 3D printing or other techniques, making drastic cuts at costs and prototyping times. eliminating the margin of error.
VVD applications in the field of education are limitless: a teacher of middle school that wants to introduce math concepts in a more captivating way, the professor of science who wants to explain to students subjects like chemistry and physics showing three-dimensional models of great visual impact.
With VVD any architect or interior designer can constantly double check its work-in-progress with a real threedimensional view, limiting the risk of errors.
Many people can watch the same 3D model at the same time, allowing more direct discussions and decision-making sessions on the project with your costumers and design team members.
VVD can be used for the three-dimensional visualization terrain or geographic surveys using DEM elevation files. A more compact VVD version can be even integrated into the dashboard of any vehicle, for real-time 3D visualization of GPS navigation systems.
VVD can be used in museums and exhibitions to highlight particular items, while more information can be provided on the frontal screen.
The affordable price (compared to other similar products) and the ability for many different people to observe it from any point of view at the same time, make it a very interesting device to attract visitors.
The Science behind VVD
Loading a simple Stl file, it is possible to visualize it in 3 dimensions as if it was an hologram. So that you can study its shape, volume and proportions, which often we cannot really catch when we watch a model on a flat bi-dimensional screen.
VVD projects the various horizontal layers of a 3D model on a special film vibrating very fast. This vibration of the image, exploit the "persistence of vision", a characteristic of our retina or brain, to retain an image after it has been removed, enabling us to perceive a whole object. This is believed to be the same principle of cinema animation techniques, where the viewer interprets a fast sequence of still images as a continuous moving image.
Please notice that since the VVD is still a live project, product and product specifications are subject to change. We are still improving and refining it every day! The specifications, and all the GIFs and videos refer to the current prototype, that has been shown already at CES (Las Vegas), FormNext (Frankfurt), Maker Faire (Rome, IT).
.STL files are already supported. Grayscale depth images can also be converted with our software. More files support will be added.
More than 39 million Voxels (608*684*96)
Current system is based on X86 / Windows board platform. Raspberry / Linux system is also being evaluated.
7" LCD for visualization of the interface, as well as photos/video that add information to the volumetric image shown.
