As we celebrate the 2 years of our
Catchyoo blog, as we take new promising directions at LM3LABS, we hire
new people, we prepare new amazing products, it was time to re-align
our blogging strategy too.
The new blog is designed to reflect the innovation spirit carried by
LM3LABS for the last 5 years. The LM3LABS blog is more product neutral,
covering all products while leaving room to the future products and
corporate and business news.
Simpler, wider, it leaves space to video in hi-quality and to better graphics.
Visitors have direct access to the products, solutions or corporate
sites with visible buttons. They can also easily contact LM3LABS thru a
form which integrates into LM3LABS business flow.
RSS subscribtion has never been so easy. Please subscribe to stay tunes!
Also please change your bookmarks as the Catchyoo blog will dissapear on August 8th and no more posting will be made on it.
At LM3LABS we do not believe much in cramming the real life into the small PC window. Recreating an all virtualized world.
We believe more in growing the digital world into the real life. This requires new types of display, like real size holography technologies, but also, and more importantly, different interaction methods. No more mice, trackpads, only free-air interactivity can accomodate this vision.
Call your virtual assistant in a gesture. She is here, right in front of you like a real person, alive.
AirStrike lets users use their finger in the air to interact with holograms.
Holograms can be used as receptionists, presenters, augmented reality objects, virtual meeting and one day visualizing your Facebook friends right in the middle of your living room, real size !
ubiq'window is the only high-precision technology in the world to provide a 100% free air, touchless interactivity.
Ubiq'window lets integrators create interactive zones associated to real-life, non-digital objects. At National Archives of Malaysia, 3 "real-world" books are associated to 3 different contents. Then visitors can turn pages of the projected screen, naturally, at distance, by pointing in the air.
This interactivity requires no training for people who instinctively know how to use the installation.
LM3LABS' partner in New Zealand, Jelly Design NZ, rolled out the Nationwide trial of Ubiq'window last month for Telecom NZ the largest Telco in NZ.
Jelly's Wheatley says:
installation went very smoothly. All units are up and running, the
system is now proving its worth in this highly competitive market. We
are developing new dynamic interfaces to add value throughout 08 and
Telecom NZ are very happy with the results and looking to include this
technology further in their retail space"
(Jelly) provide the tools and support for agencies ( in this case
Saatchi and Saatchi Auckland) to maintain control of the brand whilst
partnering with them to develop new media spaces within retail. Jelly
Design specializes in bringing Retail to life, we believe the future of
retail lies in enriching customer experience and that we have only just
touched on the possibility's Ubiq Windows offers."
Built and designed to sit alongside the existing cabinetry the
Ubiq 200 was used to create an interactive area that extended outside
the tv, each of the shelves acts as a trigger to provide further
information and sub menus on products and services.
walls themselves are interactive and triggered by printed "buttons"
that updated regularly both on the screen and the surface of the walls.
matrix of interactive zones was developed to provide a template that
enables Saatchi and Saatchi to create and distribute new media direct
from their offices in Auckland to each of the regional sites.
Design has been invited to partner with Saatchis in taking the concept
further and developing a new interactive language, a visually driven
syntax to draw on the learnings from the initial work.
installation went incredibly well, there have been no call backs and we
have a happy client looking to build on this first important step
toward dynamic instore media.
Future projects include international airlines, major automotive brands as well as further interest from the Telco sector.
a first client in New Zealand we could not have hoped for more, and Jelly Design and LM3LABS are
proud to have Telecom NZ first to market in NZ with ubiq'window.
