Anarkik3D use haptic technology in their 3D modelling product. Haptics means touch and, in this context, 3D virtual touch, It is pretty hard to describe this sensation in words so our demo at Digital Drop In is a great opportunity to experience ‘3D modelling with 3D haptics’.
Anarkik3D have developed this product, Anarkik3D Design, for designer makers and applied artists to give easier access to the exciting technology of 3D printing to expand their practice. As it has a very natural feel for interacting in a virtual environment it is a great introduction to digital 3D modelling for people with little or no experience of this.
You can ask Ann Marie Shillito, CEO of Anarkik3D, why haptics, and what are the benefits besides being amazing fun to try. Will you exclaim ‘WOW!’ as kids do, or utter ‘Weird’ as adults do? See you on Sept 10th at Digital Drop In.
