The Future of Training - Digital Catapult showcase SmartDS

London’s Digital Catapult kicked off their 3 month immersive tech training showcase last week.

SmartDS were one of six companies selected from 90 applications to be included in this UK wide technology accelerator programme.

120 delegates from training organisations in healthcare, defense, manufacturing and the creative industries were able to learn, demo and share holographic training experiences - many, for the first time. Follow the link below for more information or to see the showcase at the London and Belfast Digital Catapult offices.

Developing the dental workforce for the future -

Technology and innovation conference.

SmartDS were asked to support Prof. Pramod Luthra at last weeks COPDEND conference in Birmingham.

The team demoed Mixed Reality training prototypes to a number of delegates including representatives from Health Education England and Kings College London.

We also did a live Miracast demo to the auditorium, allowing the delegates to view on screen the in-HoloLens view of the headset user.

The demo included an introduction to an immunotherapy story shown in holograms.

What do engineers want?

SmartDS were featured at the Advanced Engineering Expo in Birmingham last week.

We met with engineers from across the world and demoed Mixed Reality training using Microsoft HoloLens.

From our discussion we found the challenges they have are:

 1) Training - new products, new  processes & inspection,

2) Product design - testing, fault finding, communicating,

3) Sales/marketing - showing complex products, processes,

4) Speed of change - Brexit, lack of engineers, move to iot, industry 4.0, rapid advances in technologies, complexity of client requirements.

If this sounds like your organisation, and you’d like to hear how holographic training experiences can help your engineering organisation, please contact us.

SmartDS engage young scientists at Liverpool STEM's Big Bang NW

SmartDS were invited to demo Mixed Reality experiences to junior science and engineering delegates at this week's Big Bang Expo in Liverpool.  7000 school aged children attended the event on Tuesday and some were already familiar with the HoloLens (from watching YouTube).  The children were able to interact with, move and resize a variety of holograms.
