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

This contest is open until June 21st for every student worldwide who have produced a project made with Dassault Systèmes’ solutions. To participate, students have to join the POTY 2013 Facebook app, and then simply enroll on 3DS Academy in order to post the project.

11 projects will be awarded, divided in 2 categories:

  • Public Prizes: The first ten projects which will receive the highest number of likes will be awarded.
  • Jury Prize: One project will receive the jury prize, awarded by a panel of professionals on the basis of content published on 3DS Academy.

Teachers at Dassault Systèmes (TADS) Citizenship Program

Last Summer, we piloted a program on the 3DS Boston Campus called Teachers at Dassault Systèmes (TADS). We partnered with local Waltham High School to provide a 6-week summer internship for 2 teachers. Not only did they learn about Dassault Systèmes as an example of a global, innovative, technology company, but they took our Passion for Innovation program, Khufu Reborn, and created a 3-lesson engineering design challenge for their classrooms.

This program is part of our larger corporate citizenship commitment to improving Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education across North America. We have created a 3-minute film about the TADS program and have entered it in a film festival sponsored by the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship (BCCCC).

The TADS program has 3 main goals:

  1. Educate Teachers – Provide teachers in our communities with first-hand experience about STEM careers at innovation driven companies, that they can then pass on to their students and encourage them pursue these types of careers and classwork
  2. Educate Students – Enable teachers with 3DS solutions and passion for innovation programs that are not currently available for use in a classroom, but could potentially be very valuable for teachers to use to inspire young people to dream bigger and pursue STEM based futures.
  3. Educate Communities – To be a positive feature in the communities that we work by increasing awareness of Dassault Systèmes by members of the Waltham Public Schools community

Oh, and if you liked our video, cast your vote for the Dassault Systemes TADS video at BCCCC’s Film Festival for corporate citizenhip videos! Thank you!  :-)
