A new 3D tool hit the U.S. for the first time (at both CES and TCEA), Leonar3Do. Building on the metaphor of the engineering, design work, and creativity of the famous inventor/artist/engineer Leonardo daVinci, this group (and their U.S. reseller) offers a “mixed reality” stereo 3D desktop VR kit. Check out this video to see how this technology conceptually works. This company produces “an interactive tool that not only displays, but also integrates into your own personal 3D space.” It features the bird, a special 3D handheld controller than enables the user to reach, grab, work and play with objects. Currently, they are offering educational, professional, home, and conference center editions of their product. This tool advances the possibilities for student content creation, especially at the high school, college, and university level. For educators, this tool would make a strong basis for an excellent grant proposal.
