“Augmented Reality in Fab Education & School Fab Lab Mixed Reality” is the topic of a Workshop at Fab14 in Toulouse, France, on Thursday, July 19. The Co-Founder of Fab Lab Connect and School Fab Lab, Nader Shaterian, will be presenting the workshop from 5:00 to 7:00 PM local time on Thursday.
Mixed Reality in Education brings digital design and fabrication into the classroom. The AR app makes it easy to use 2D and 3D design to layout your School Fab Lab Makerspace, without moving a single piece of furniture! Using the Fab Lab machines through the App is one of the easiest and safest ways to become familiar with the machines, before you actually start using them
Educators and Fabbers can use the SFL AR App to experiment with placing machines, and then see them function in a customized space. The mixed reality space can be recorded and shared through video.
The School Fab Lab AR App allows you to:
– Bring realistically scaled Fab Lab machines into actual spaces.
– Set multiple machines in your space to design and finalize your new School Fab Lab layout.
– Operate machines in mixed reality to learn about the digital fabrication process and capabilities of each machine.
– Take a video walkthrough of your space and record the machines in operation.
– Share your video with others.
The SFL AR App is available now at the Apple App store.
These two images do not exist in “real life”! They are examples of changing reality with Augmented Reality!
