Emerging Technology Showcase at OpenCulture 2014


As part of an ongoing partnership with the Collections Trust, Inition will be exhibiting our current arsenal of augmented and virtual reality applications, along with holographic displays, 3D scanning and printing abilities at our 3D and Virtual Reality Showcase for next week’s OpenCulture 2014 conference.

Following on from the success of an earlier Collections Trust collaboration featuring the real-time 3D scanning and 3D printing of artefacts from the Fitzwilliam Museum and an immersive 360 degree rowing experience for the Henley River and Rowing Museum, Inition will once again illustrate the highly yielding union between heritage collections and 3D technology.

This time, at OpenCulture 2014, we’ve taken the conference theme ‘Putting your collection to work,’ and will be focusing on the latest developments in augmented and virtual reality technology and its potential to transform the way visitors participate and interact with museums, with demonstrations of the current capabilities.

Together with our exhibiting partners for the showcase, Faro, we’ll be taking a series of 360 degree 3D laser scans, including the iconic Kia Oval space, this data will be made available to view as animations in our showcase area.

The last, and likely most exciting, part of the emerging technology showcase will centre on the experiential offerings available; visitors are invited to have their busts 3D scanned, to be immortalised forever with the 3D images available to download later as a very personalised keepsake.

The Inition 3D & Virtual Reality Showcase at OpenCulture takes place at The Kia Oval, London next week on the 25th-26th June.
