As we said at Forum LABO and ELRIGfr event, we are convinced that many (not-so) new technologies can enhance work of biologists. Augmented reality is a great tool to see “things that are not here” 🙂 It’s exactly why we have used it to check and validate our future robotic platform compliance (in our Lille laboratories) before delivery. Thanks to our partner Molecular Devices, we have worked on the platform 3D model to put it into a Microsoft Hololens and finally, in our laboratory ! The process is not so complex, when you work with Hololens specialists like dad (agence-dad.fr) !
As you can see on the video below, our CEO Nathalie talks with Cédric (from Molecular Devices) about small modifications on the platform. They see together the same 3D model. It is also possible to add a third person from a distant place.
It was only the first step ! Now we are working on the training part of our project and, of course, the possibility to maintain the platform from anywhere in the world ! If you have question, don’t hesitate to talk with our CDO Grégory, as you can see on his profile he is also an AR expert !
