The Co-Design using Hyve-3D workshop at eCAADe 2017 in Rome was a success. Special thanks to all the participants and our collaborators: Marc Aurel Schnabel, Tane Moleta and Sky interconnected from VUW in New Zealand 🇳🇿, Sahar Soltani and Pan Liao from UniSA in Australia 🇦🇺, and Sana Boudhraa and Xueying from the Hybridlab in Canada 🇨🇦. Also we would like to thanks Armando Trento and Antonio Fioravanti from the Sapienza 🇮🇹 that made all their efforts to make this workshop happens.
A non-immersive demo of our system Hyve-3D was carry on at the French conference of Human Computer Interaction (IHM 2016) at Fribourg, Switzerland, on October 26th – 28th.
Thanks to the Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Family Foundation that sponsored twenty-five (25) emerging entrepreneurs who will participate in all activities in the C2 Montréal 2016 International Business Conference, from May 24-26. This initiative recognizes and rewards Québec entrepreneurs who make a contribution to the evolution of business by demonstrating remarkably dynamic creativity and innovation.
Hyve-3D has been presented at the 2016 Aerospace Innovation Forum within the session of innovative start-ups in aerospace.
It seemed to be the only market-ready technology able to support collaborative conceptual design sketching in 3D.
Innovation in Virtual Heritage
The Hyve-3D has been successfully applied to the domain of Virtual Heritage. It allowed to explore in a completely new way an historical virtual place scanned using the photogrammetry technique. In addition, the novel interaction offered by the 3D cursor open new avenues for researchers as well as other users. Every museum should have it!
LIVING SYSTEMS AND MICRO-UTOPIAS: TOWARDS CONTINUOUS DESIGNING
21st Annual Conference on Computer-Aided Architecture Design Research in Asia
March 30, 2016 – Aprile 2, 2016
The University of Melbourne, AUSTRALIA
Organized by Contact MTL and the University of Montréal, the very first “Experiential Event” by Contact MTL was hold on November 24, 2015 at Professor Tomás Dorta’s Design research laboratory: Hybridlab and was featuring Hyve-3D system with a live demonstration. People discovered this incredible alternative to the virtual reality headsets! http://bit.ly/1MgjUfI
We are very proud that Hyve-3D, a technology born & raised in Université de Montréal’s Hybridlab, has developed into a full blown startup! We are now accepting orders for full-system installation.
We will be attending the second time the ACM SIGGRAPH Conference to present Hyve-3D as part of the Studio exhibit. We have made significant progress since attending the conference the last year in Vancouver. We are excited to be given the opportunity once again to present our work alongside world’s leading experts in computer graphics, visualization, animation, digital and interactive technologies.
The conference will be held between the dates 9 and 13 August 2015 in Los Angeles, California. For further information please visit the SIGGRAPH 2015 website.
Hyve-3D was featured on Bloomberg TV as one of the 10 projects selected for their “The Year Ahead 2015” series! The program details on the innovative features of Hyve-3D, and presents it as one of the newest technological innovations that will mark the year 2015.
Hyve-3D was launched at the SIGGRAPH 2014 Conference at Vancouver (Canada) on August 10th, 2014.
Hyve-3D is an interface for 3D content creation via collaborative 3D sketching. It introduces a half hemi-spherical, immersive 3D sketching environment based on spherical panoramas and uses 2D drawing planes that are intuitively manipulated in 3D space with tracked handheld tablets.
Hyve-3D a été officiellement lancé à la conférence SIGGRAPH 2014 tenue à Vancouver (Canada) le 10 août 2014.
Hyve-3D est une nouvelle interface des plus réaliste qui permet d’effectuer des esquisses en 3D de façon collaborative. Ce système introduit un environnement immersif semi-sphérique détectant des plans de dessins 2D (tablettes) intuitivement manipulées dans l’espace.
We are pleased to announce that Hyve-3D will soon be launched. This state-of-the-art immersive virtual reality interface will finally allow you to sketch, collaborate and design in another level.
We are now testing the 1.0 version of the software and getting ready for the big launch early next year. Feel free to contact us if you have any further questions, we would like to hear from you!
C’est avec grand plaisir que nous procéderons bientôt au lancement commercial du HYVE-3D . Cette interface immersive de réalité virtuelle à la fine pointe de la technologie va finalement vous permettre d’élever le design, la collaboration ainsi que le sketch à un niveau supérieur.
Nous en sommes maintenant à tester la version 1.0 du logiciel et nous nous préparons pour le lancement officiel prévu au début de l’année prochaine. Si vous avez des questions, contactez-nous! Nous aimerions avoir de vos nouvelles.
