ForgeFX would like to thank everyone who stopped by our booth last week at SIGGRAPH in Anaheim, The 40th International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques. If you study, create, or use computer graphics and interactive techniques, SIGGRAPH is the conference for you. ForgeFX was honored to be one of the exhibitors this year, offering a sneak peak at their latest 3D training simulator products, along with some cutting/bleeding edge hardware solutions.
|ForgeFX Training Simulator Station at SIGGRAPH|
ForgeFX had both platform and desktop simulator stations available for conference attendees to try out. While few of the attendees had much experience operating the types of heavy equipment the simulators train operators for, they were able to jump onto the simulator and give it a shot, without worrying about potentially damaging a multi-million dollar piece of machinery. In most cases, people were able to quickly master the basic controls of the machinery at a high enough level to begin learning the more complicated process of using the equipment.
|ForgeFX Training Simulators Utilizing Virtual Reality Head-Mounted Display|
Most of our simulators run on traditional flat screens, though we are always experimenting with new hardware technology solutions. While not quite ready for prime time, ForgeFX demonstrated a prototype of a training simulator using a virtual reality head-mounted display systems. With more and more demand for movement and gesture controlled virtual reality, ForgeFX is constantly examining options as they become available and demonstrating their results.
|Thanks from all of us at ForgeFX.|
Thanks again to everyone who stopped by our booth and took the time to try out our simulators. We always love to see people using the products we develop, getting their feedback, and coming up with new ways to leverage simulator technology. If you didn’t get a chance to visit us at SIGGRAPH this year please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss simulator development.
