I.AM.3DEXPERIENCE and ready to TRANS4M!

By Aurelien

For those of you who were with us in Las Vegas last november, you probably remember that we introduced a new partnership with will.i.am‘s i.am.angel foundation as part of our support for STEM (Science, Technology, Education and Mathematics). Enrique Legaspi, Chief of Staff, and Vincent Archer, Director Global Development, i.am.angel foundation, inspired us with their talk “Create, Curate and Share” on how the power tools of today (software, 3D printing…) can help the next generation touch the future.

The I.AM.3DEXPERIENCE intiative is just about that: providing students from underserved communities with the right tools and education so that they can “write, code, imagine, dream and make”, as will.i.am rightly puts it:

Given the feedback from the audience at this 3DEXPERIENCE Customer Forum, we figured out that you were as inspired and enthusiast as we’ve been  :-)

So what’s next? On January 23rd the i.am.angel Foundation will host its annual TRANS4M benefit concert in Los Angeles, CA. This event, which will be broadcast live on the i.am.angel Foundation website, will publicly kick-off our collaboration. By then, you can support TRANS4M benefit: by donating to the foundation, or by tweeting with us on the #TRANS4M hashtag. And stay tuned!

Have you ever wondered how your cat or dog sees?

You will now get your answers with AllEyes! The AllEyes experiment is a social 3DExperience offering everyone the ability to see through the eyes of animals you are familiar with. Watch this:

Based on actual scientific data, the objective is to teach both children & adults about animal vision by immersing oneself into a 3D visual interactive simulation. Beyond individual differences (nearsightedness, color-blindness, etc), all human eyes see the same. However, our binocular vision is very different from that of most animals: indeed, eyes are not always even placed in the same way in the animal kingdom – or even designed to see the same things humans see. You will be able to experience what they see, what they feel, and what are their constraints in a real time 3D evnironment, moving around Place Vendôme (coming from our Paris3D experience :wink: ), one of the most prestigious square in Paris.

This 3D Experience comes with two modes:

  • A simulation part, where adults and teachers can learn and explain better, switching back and forth from animal to human vision
  • Mini-games for each animal, where players have to circumvent the constraints of animal vision to get the best scores

A Scientific committee led by Dr. Didier Schmidt-Morand, Veterinary Ophthalmologist, is behind this project to provide data and studies enabling a scientific simulation and validate the real life conformity. To learn more and answer all your questions, we invite you to join the dedicated social community to discuss and interact with the subject matter experts.

Play now the AllEyesOnParis 3D Experience. It’s online, fun, and free! Enjoy! :D
