Biscayan company Binary Soul has taken part in the IMTS trade show in Chicago, presenting its new Motion Box solution, a system to interact with 3D images by using one’s hands. The product makes it possible to display and explore machinery in presentations, marketing events and training.
The Motion Box solution consists of a small hardware package in the form of a box with movement sensors and software which, when connected to any screen, allows you to interact with 3D images, where the user only has to make hand gestures to turn, dismantle or access information about each machine in the catalogue. It has been created by the team at Bilbao company Binary Soul, who first presented the product this September at the International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago, one of the most important events for the machine tool sector.
Motion Box is intended to improve the experience of visualizing 3D models for presentations, trade fair stands or training sessions, since it allows machinery, or any 3D model, to be explored by interacting with the images through hand gestures. “It is an opportunity for companies to show their machinery in a much more detailed and attractive way than with a simple presentation or to do spectacular things by using large screens”, explains Carlos Cabarcos of Binary Soul. One of its major advantages is that it enables the entire catalogue of machinery to be shown with a single application, instead of having to create animations for each model.
“The basic product is already developed and allows each item to be dismantled, rotated, technical information to be displayed and animations played”, states Carlos Cabarcos, “but we offer it as a customised product according to the customer’s requirements”. The presentation in Chicago has been the first step in launching Motion Box onto the market, and although the company has initially addressed the machine tool sector, its creators are also exploring its application in other companies that work with 3D models for their products. In developing Motion Box, Binary Soul has received the support of Beaz Bizkaia, Bilbao Ekintza, Innobasque and DigiPen Institute.
