Mr. Texturesaurus-Rex, what do you think about this?

By Kate

I recently had the pleasure to meet Mr. Texturesaurs-Rex (above).  My first spy was from BostonDave‘s Twitter feed, and then I followed him to Cliff’s Clips and see that he’s a veritable 3D star, featured in at least two videos.

So when Jérôme from Barcelona sent me this commercial this morning (gracias!), I couldn’t help but think of Mr. Texturesaurus.  Notice the clever use of texture in the below clip:

Ok, this is an ad selling paper, so the 2D references are perfectly excuseable.  Yet the mix between 2D paper scribble, 3D and mixed reality hits me like poetry.  

Tex-Rex, what’s your assessment?  



Mobi3 Moments: Snippets from a DS Project Manager

By Charles

I’ve been involved in the Mobi3 project for 9 months and wanted to share some moments. But first, if you don’t know what is Mobi3, here’s a 1 minute video that recaps the project:

Here’s a look at my Mobi3 perspectives, journal style:

May 28th, 2009: Paris

9:30 a.m., @ the IBM tower. As a representative of Dassault Systèmes, I’m here to evaluate one year of work and research made by kids chosen among 120 middle school students from economically disadvantaged neighborhoods in Paris.

Final presentaion in Paris

Final presentaion in Paris

10:00 a.m., The first group enters the room to present its project. The goal: discover the product design and development process of a mobile phone. I’m very surprised by their easiness to present their new phone in front of a jury of professionals from companies such as SFR, Nokia, Dassault Systèmes, DLA Piper… I’m also impressed by their ability to explain in details each phase of the conception: from design to manufacturing through intellectual property and commercialization.

12:00 a.m., lunch break: I decide to join a group of students talking about their performance. They seem very proud and happy to have accomplished something: They started with this mission a year ago and went through several steps from visiting each partner company to the conception of their mobile phone, at least the 3D model. During our conversations, the students told me that they would like to use 3DVIA Shape for their personal use. Eh hop! On top of catching their interest for this project, they are now personally implicated and ready to learn, work, and play in 3D!

Nokia Design Studio Visit in London

July 2nd, 2009: London

9:00 a.m., @ Piccadilly Circus. We are on the verge of visiting the Nokia Design Lab. The 2009 winning team is very excited to see and to present their project in front of professionals and discover how these people are working for real!

2:00 p.m. @ The London Eye: After a great presentation in English in front of Nokia designers, it’s time to have fun! In the London Eye, the winning team is exploring London and congratulates themselves for this great success!

Bravo kids! I’m very proud of you!

What Will “Green” Look Like in Our Future?

By Cliff

What will “Green” look like in our future?

What will be the breakthroughs in technology be in our future that will make our would more sustainable?

“Going Green” and “Sustainable” are common terms that have been used, and over-used. And we have seen the world making more of an effort to help with sustainable efforts. But where are the big breakthroughs in technology to help us become more sustainable? Dassault Systèmes believes one way to look into the future for new sustainable solutions is visualizing it…in 3D.

This video message from Bruno Delahaye (actually his avatar) uses TVnima to explain what Dassault Systèmes is doing to help the world become more sustainable.
