SLUSH17 is over. Winter can come!

By | News

This year’s SLUSH was waited to come long before it took place. We had a great opportunity to cooperate with Microsoft at their booth by presenting HoloLens content that we’ve created for our other clients during the past year. Jani Leskinen and Rami Salle fit HoloLenses nonstop for two days. “The visitors to the stand varied from Slush volunteers wanting to experience HoloLens to C-level executives from large corporations seeking for answers to where the world is going to. All together, we received very positive feedback for our HoloLens content”, Jani told after the busy days at Slush.

While Jani and Rami were busy creating #slushmoments together with Microsoft, Juuso Pihamaa attended the “Digitalizing Maritime Business” side event and Matti Gröhn the ”X Reality Day” side event. One of the key takeaways from both side events was emphasising the common fact that technology alone is not the answer. What counts is if you are able to create real solutions for real problems with the new technology, be it VR, AR, MR or XR.

While the meaning and abbreviations within different R’s seems to still be on the move, one thing is already clear. With them it’s possible to solve real problems for companies.

VR can take you anywhere – AR can bring anything to you!-

If you missed us at Slush come to meet us at Ratkaisu18 on 25th January to Finlandia Hall – meanwhile you can check our customer cases of SHOWSCAPE to see the some of the places we  have recently taken our customers to.

We continue to grow – Presenting new team member: Victor Pardinho, Creative Producer

By | News

Our team is again one man stronger as our new Creative Producer Victor Pardinho joined the team in September. Victor, originally from Brazil, has studied at Aalto Media Lab where he from the very beginning of his master’s studies has been involved in research and in virtual reality. For his master’s thesis Victor made, together with director Synes Elischka, a virtual reality short film.

Victor’s particular interest is in storytelling and new media; AR, VR, and MR. That is also what he has been teaching in workshops for future film and media professionals both at Aalto University and at Metropolia University of Applied Sciences.

At Stereoscape he gets to turn his storytelling skills into our customers’ advantage. Together with the rest of the team Victor will be dealing with questions on how to use new technologies in telling corporate customers’ product stories in a way that is both interesting and fun and that delivers the desired message in a clear and easy to understand way.

“Before coming to Finland for my master’s I worked five years in Sao Paulo and in Europe. Sometimes doing a huge project, with big budget for just a simple consumer good seemed frustrating. I’m eager to work on projects where the beef is not just about a short-lived consumer good, but about things that matter more; investments in machines and constructions that take a long time to build, that last long and that have large economical consequences. “

I search of new ways for using media and technology in storytelling Victor is also active in various art projects. His VR installations have been seen in e.g. Finnish embassy in South Korea. Victor himself has been seen VJing at Flow Festival. We at Stereoscape, in turn, are very happy to see him being part of our team.

Stereoscape collaborates with Fortum in creating AR for industry

By | News

Heads-up and hands-free, guided maintenance and remote experts, training in real like situations but with no risk and no downtime. Cost savings stemming from fewer errors, time savings stemming from improved performance, and improved safety and faster operations resulting from more efficient learning. For industries AR promises big benefits.

However, the industrial environment also introduces its own set of challenges in developing applications that make all the promises come true. For the hardware alone there are questions relating to battery life, connectivity, field of view, safety and the overall robustness of the devices to suit the industrial environment. The software, in turn, should stand up to the requirements for industry use in regards of reliability and security. The content should be intuitive, easy to use, and easily accessible.

These are the challenges Fortum and Stereoscape are trying to tackle together when developing applications for field operators’ work and training with AR.

The co-operation is part of the VARPU project, a large project on applications of VR and AR in industry.

For more information, contact Matti Gröhn.

Apple’s ARKit is making AR easy

By | News

The biggest news in AR this summer was Apple’s release of ARKit; the revolutionary developer kit that lets developers build AR apps, which integrate digital experiences into the physical world via iPhone or iPad. Apple’s point-and-play AR makes it simple and easy for users to just go ahead and play with it. So simple that it is said to be killing an entire generation of AR businesses. The apps will be available for consumers with the release of iOS 11 already in September.

We at Stereoscape have been busy with ARKit during the summer. First apps are ready and waiting to be released. Do you want to see more? Come to Mainontapäivä on September 19th to see what we can do for your marketing and sales with ARKit.

We are growing – Presenting new team member: Matti Gröhn, Development Director

By | News

Stereoscape continues to grow. Working on the forefront of new technology today a lot of our customer cases include new R&D challenges. Therefore we are strengthening our research and development team with new Development Director, Matti Gröhn.

Matti has a solid scientific background in interactive digital media, a D.Sc. (Tech.) degree from Helsinki University of Technology, and an endless intellectual curiosity. “My dissertation in 2006 was about Application of Spatial Sound Reproduction in Virtual Environments but throughout the years my research has been dealing with topics related to cognitive ergonomics, visualisation, and virtual reality. I have always been attracted to “future technology” and finding out ways to do things that were never done before.”

As Development Director in Stereoscape Matti will be in charge of the VARPU project as well as participating in our other research projects and acting as the technical support to our sales team.

Digitalisation and the development of VR, AR and MR is important for the Finnish economy and its ability to compete in the global market. “It seems to me that finally the technological development has reached the stage where it is actually possible to do the things that we talked about in research 15 years ago. That’s why I’m so excited to join the Stereoscape team that is doing exactly the right things; creating solutions for real world problems – for real companies at the core of our nation’s competitiveness. ”, says Matti who in his free time enjoys making music and biking.

We are happy to welcome Matti to the Stereoscape orchestra!

China’s leading AR company Realmax visited Stereoscape

By | News

Recently we had the pleasure of welcoming high-level visitors from China to Stereoscape. A delegation from the country’s leading AR company Realmax was in Finland looking for partners with good AR solutions. At our showroom the group got to see what Stereoscape team has been doing in the field lately. Our Chinese guests were particularly impressed by our excellent client base with global leaders like ABB, Nokia, Valmet, Wärtsilä etc. on board.

During the visit Stereoscape team got to test-drive some of Realmax’s products; RealSeer and RealWear. RealSeer is a lightweight device that works with mobile phone. It has a wide field of view and it could be described as cardboard for AR – just like what Google cardboard is for VR. RealWear, in turn, is an AR device that can be attached to any protection helmet.

For us at Stereoscape constantly searching for what is new and noteworthy in the business, the visit offered a good view into AR development in Asia. “In particular the RealWear seemed interesting as it has features that make it well suitable for industrial use; it is hands free, voice controlled and allows field workers to connect with experts in remote locations”, Steroscape CTO Ferhat Sen expressed the team’s views after testing the devices.

WAR ON TALENT, SAFETY IS KEY – insights on digitalisation of Asian industries

By | News

Mr Pontus Siren, partner at Innosight/Huron in Singapore came to visit his old friend, our Creative Producer, Rami Salle. Once at Stereoscape he also shared his views on digitalisation of manufacturing industry in Asia with us.

Even in Asia labour is no longer an infinitive resource. On the contrary, there is a war on talent. Shortage of skilled workers has led to raising wages, posing new challenges to industry. Also safety and remote work were topics that have risen in importance in the industry in Asia. The solutions to these challenges seem familiar to us at Stereoscape: immersive training, guided maintenance, AR, VR,…

One more thing that Pontus Siren reminded us is the fact that Asian industries are very well informed of the development that is taking place in our industries. If we want to be the winners of the digitalisation of industry we should move fast. We at Stereoscape are ready – so let’s go!

“I want to be part of Arlanda” – Stereoscape’s design sprint workshop in Arlanda

By | News

Stereoscape’s Key Account Manager Jani Leskinen and Producer Rami Salle recently spent a day in Arlanda, Sweden. Commissioned by Swedavia, the Swedish state owned company owning, operating, and developing airports in Sweden, Jani and Rami were leading a one-day design sprint workshop. The mission of the workshop was to define ways to make future development of Arlanda area interesting and visible in a showroom.

Arlanda area will undergo massive development in the coming decades. How to make visible the long-term development that can only be seen after a long time, e.g. how will the area look like in 2020, 2030 or 2050? And yet, how to show the pulse of something new and big happening every day? Together with the participants Jani and Rami were looking into different solutions on how to show it and wow! it to different kinds of visitors. And solutions they found. Good data visualisation can show the everyday happenings in an interesting way. Augmented reality, in turn, can make the long-term development feel and look real in the current environment not just on paper.

“I want to be part of Arlanda”, was defined as the slogan for the showroom. We are looking forward to seeing the slogan come true in a showroom that makes everybody part of the development by making the future of Arlanda visible.

Stereoscape collaborated with Valmet in a mixed reality demo

Stereoscape collaborated with Valmet in a mixed reality demo

By | News

Stereoscape participated in “Kampusklubi” VR -event in Tampere on October 14th. The event was probably the biggest of it’s kind in Finland with 30 Finnish companies presenting their VR solutions and demos.

The popular VR -event drew large public and media attendance. The demo that drew the most attention was a mixed reality solution presented by Valmet presenting their latest achievements in bringing together the Internet of Things and virtual reality with HTC Vive head-mounted displays and mixed reality solution with Microsoft HoloLenses. The demo where a VR model of a boiler was combined with data streams from existing systems was created in collaboration with Stereoscape.

Stereoscape provided Valmet with technology consultancy, virtual reality software and software development support using Vizard VR development platform from our partner WorldViz.

Mixed reality that blends real world objects with digital content, interactively, and in real time holds huge potential for companies. The strong interest directed to Valmet’s demo is yet another proof of the potential that lies in mixed reality solutions, solutions that combine the best aspects of both augmented reality and virtual reality.

A more detailed description of our collaboration with Valmet in this groundbreaking demo will be published later on our web-page.

Collaborative VR

Collaborative VR

By | News

A new way of being present in the same reality – virtually. 

Check out our new collaborative VR demo.

Imagine working together side by side with you colleague, without even being on the same continent. Or having the best industry expert guide you through a difficult assembly from the other side of the world. Or having a guided walk-trough of a site, apartment, factory etc. with you in one place, your guide in another and the virtual site in a third location.

With the help of collaborative virtual reality all this is now possible.

See Stereoscape’s Creative Digitalist Antti Granqvist and CTO Ferhat Sen demonstrate this entirely new way of collaborating: Ferhat on the right and Antti on the left, both wearing VR headsets and working together without physically being in the same place; Antti using projection VR and being guided in assembly work by Ferhat wearing a VR headset; or the two of them having a walk-through of an apartment.

The demo was done in collaboration with our partner WorldViz, the industry leader in interactive virtual reality solutions for professional applications.

WorldViz VR solution

WorldViz’s VR technology scales up

By | News

WorldViz, the world leader in innovative enterprise-level VR solutions, has introduced Unity and Unreal Engine support for its “warehouse-scale” precision position tracking (PPT) system. The release brings the cutting-edge tracking technology to any VR headset supported by these games engines – Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, PlayStation VR, Samsung Gear VR, and also the recently announced Google Daydream VR platform.

WorldViz’s PPT technology can track up to 10 users or objects simultaneously in an area larger than 50 x 50 meters with real-time, sub-millimetre accuracy, allowing people to walk around in a lifelike virtual reality environment.

The hybrid optical-inertial PPT system includes high-precision cameras that capture position data at 240Hz; lightweight sensors that can be affixed to VR headsets or objects such as robots; a hand-held sensor “wand” for tracking hands; and a standalone software package. The system works with both projection-based systems and headset-based VR and is ideal for applications that require high degrees of precision and accuracy, movement, collaboration and co-presence, such as such as large-scale product design reviews, architectural and real-estate walk-throughs, and research and training applications.

The new Unity and Unreal Engine plugins will open up a whole new range of opportunities for VR content development for enterprise and entertainment applications as well as academic research – providing free-roaming VR experiences, where people can freely explore immersive virtual worlds.

Digitalisaatio on muotikaupan mahdollisuus

By | News

Vielä pari vuotta sitten talouslehtien jutut lupasivat perinteiselle kivijalkakaupalle kylmää kyytiä. Erityisesti muotiliikkeiden pelättiin jäävän vain showroomeiksi ja sovituskopeiksi mobiiliostamiseen tottuneille ”milleniaaleille”. Nyt samat perinteisten myymälöiden tuhoa ennustaneet lehdet kertovat uutisia kivijalkamyymälöiden uudesta tulemisesta. Jopa verkkokaupan jättiläiset Amazon ja eBay ovat avanneet omat kivijalkamyymälänsä.

Muotikaupassa monet merkit ovat yllättäen satsanneet näyttäviin uusiin myymälöihin, joissa elämyksellisyyttä luodaan uusilla digitaalisilla keinoilla ja joissa fyysisen myymälän ja verkkokaupan rajat sekoittuvat. Kivijalkakaupan pelastukseksi näyttäisikin nousevan sama, mikä vielä muutama vuosi sitten oli sen suurin mörkö, digitaalisuus.

Elämyksellisyys kaiken keskiössä

Eräänlainen lähtölaukaus kehitykselle oli Burberryn lippulaivamyymälän avaaminen Lontoossa 2012. Sittemmin mielenkiintoisista uusista digitaalisuutta hyödyntävistä myymäläkonsepteista on kuultu monilta muilta huippumerkeiltä: Rebecca Minkoff, Alexander McQueen, Hugo Boss, Adidas sekä TopShop. Myymälätilan digitalisoitumisen myötä myös raja verkkokaupan ja fyysisen myymälän välillä hämärtyy. Digitalisaatio on muotikaupan mahdollisuus Vielä pari vuotta sitten talouslehtien jutut lupasivat perinteiselle kivijalkakaupalle kylmää kyytiä. erityisesti muotiliikkeiden pelättiin jäävän vain showroomeiksi ja sovituskopeiksi mobiiliostamiseen tottuneille ”milleniaaleille”. nyt samat perinteisten myymälöiden tuhoa ennustaneet lehdet kertovat uutisia kivijalkamyymälöiden uudesta tulemisesta. Jopa verkkokaupan jättiläiset Amazon ja eBay ovat avanneet omat kivijalkamyymälänsä. Digipeili näyttää mainosviestit tyylikkäästi ja myymälän ilmeen mukaisesti.

Suomalainen interaktiivisiin 3D-visualisointiratkaisuihin erikoistunut Stereoscape Oy on seurannut digitalisaatiokehitystä muotikaupassa jo pitkään. Yhtiön toimitusjohtaja Heli Nelimarkka kertoo, että erityisesti erilaiset interaktiiviset digitaaliset ratkaisut tuovat uusia mahdollisuuksia perinteiseen myymälätilaan. Vierailtuaan maaliskuussa Retail Design Expossa Lontoossa Nelimarkka on entistä vakuuttuneempi kehityksestä: ”Myymälöiden elämyksellisyyteen satsataan nyt paljon. Myymälätilat digitalisoituvat näyttävästi ja isosti; suuria näyttöjä, interaktiivisia ikkunoita, digitaalisia peilejä, upeita projisointeja. Muotikauppa on nyt elämyksellistä ja digitaalista kaikissa kanavissa. ”

Kerro kerro kuvastin, digipeili kertoo enemmän

Erilaisten näyttötekniikoiden kehittyminen on tuonut uusia ulottuvuuksia myymälätilan sisustuksen digitalisointiin. Yksi esimerkki tästä on digitaalinen peili. ”Digipeilihän on oikeasti vain peilipintainen näyttö”, kertoo Channel Sales Manager Charlotta Heiskanen Stereoscapesta. Digipeili kertoo sekä ostajalle että myyjälle enemmän. Peilinäyttöön on mahdollista saada lisätietoja vaikkapa asiakkaan sovittamasta vaatteesta; mitä kokoja, värejä tai muita yhteensopivia tuotteita liikkeestä löytyy. Myyjälle digitaaliset älypeilit mahdollistavat asiakkaiden mieltymysten tarkan analyysin; mitä tuotteita sovitetaan eniten ja jääkö jokin tietty tuote, väri tai koko muita useammin sovituksen jälkeen sittenkin ostamatta. Liiketunnistinta hyödyntämällä peili voi myös reagoida lähestyvään asiakkaaseen; näyttää tervehdyksen, ohjata tiettyyn pisteeseen myymälässä, näyttää lisätietoa tuotteesta tai kampanjasta. “Käytännössä vain mielikuvitus on rajana sille mitä sisältöjä peiliin voidaan tuoda. Kosketusnäyttöä en ehkä kuitenkaan peiliin asentaisi; ylimääräisiä kämmenenkuvia tuskin kukaan jatkuvasti haluaa peilistä pestä”, naurahtaa Heiskanen.

Ikkunaostoksilla interaktiivisesti

Digitaalisuuden hyödyntämisen vähittäiskaupassa ei tarvitse jäädä vain myymälän sisätiloihin. Interaktiiviset näyteikkunat mahdollistavat tuotetietojen selaamisen ikkunasta kaikkina vuorokauden aikoina. Interaktiivisen ikkunan kautta voi tuotteet jopa ostaa. Esimerkiksi amerikkalaismerkki Kate Spade lanseerasi Saturday-brändinsä New Yorkissa pop-up -konseptilla, jossa koko myymälä oli yhtä kuin interaktiivinen, ostamisen mahdollistava, näyteikkuna. Suomessa ei vielä muotikaupassa ole juurikaan interaktiivisia näyteikkunoita nähty, mutta konsepti yleistyy varmasti täälläkin uskoo Charlotta Heiskanen. ”Vaikka ikkunaan ei aina ostomahdollisuutta tuotaisikaan, mahdollistaa interaktiivinen ikkuna vaikkapa liikkeen koko tarjooman esittelyn 24/7. Ei kai hyvää sijaintia ja kallista kauppapaikkaa kannata aukioloaikojen ulkopuolella jättää vain muutaman tuotteen esittelyyn.”

Ammattiostajia unohtamatta

Myös ammattiostajien ostokokemuksella on väliä ja digielämykset tekevät tuloaan myös vaatebrändien näyttelytiloihin. Tommy Hilfiger avasi viime vuonna Amsterdamissa digitaalisen showroomin. Sen keskiössä on suuri kosketusnäyttöpöytä, joka toimii yhdessä neljä metriä korkean videoseinän kanssa. Konsepti on tarkoitus monistaa muille markkina-alueille ja sen sanotaan mullistavan ammattiostajien ostokokemuksen.

“Digikuva” luo elämyksiä

Yhdeksi kuluvan vuoden suurista trendeistä vähittäiskaupassa on nimetty nk. ”digikiva” (”Fun-Tech”) eli teknologian hyödyntäminen asiakkaiden viihtymisen ja elämysten luojana. Upeimpia esimerkkejä tästä on Lontoon Harroldsin ikkunaan viime vuoden pääsiäiseksi totutettu Fabergé 3D-projisointi: valoshow, taideinstallaatio ja huikea mainos. Projisointitekniikka mahdollistaa paitsi näyttävät wowelämykset, myös pienemmät toteutukset, joissa tekniikan keinoin parannetaan asiakkaan ostokokemusta. ”Mitä jos liikkeessä nostat esillä olevan kengän, ja saman tien tasolle, jossa kenkä oli, projisoituukin lisätietoja? Tai mitä jos näyteikkunassa yhteen ja samaan valkoiseen kankaaseen voidaan projisoida malliston kaikki erilaiset kuosit, elävästi ja elämyksellisesti? 3D-projisoinnilla tämä kaikki on mahdollista.” kertoo Creative Digitalist Antti Granqvist Stereoscapelta. Omanlaistaan digikivaa on myös keinotodellisuuden hyödyntäminen. Muun muassa Balenciaga, Rebecca Minkoff ja Topshop,ovat tarjonneet asiakkailleen mahdollisuuden elää muotinäytös todeksi virtuaalitodellisuudessa. Kukapa ei haluaisi kokea Pariisin muotinäytöstä eturivistä, vaikka oikeasti istuisikin helsinkiläisessä myymälässä, virtuaalilasit päässä? Wow-elämys on taattu ja asiakkaalle annettu yksi syy lisää astua myymälään.

Virtual tour of cleantech companies during Rio Olympics

By | News

In collaboration with Cleantech Finland, Stereoscape brings together Cleantech Finland´s member company presentations on a multimedia, multitouch wall. The multimedia screen is a new way for Cleantech Finland to present its members in an interactive experience and increase visibility at events both in Finland and abroad. After being showcased at Vaasa Energy Week, the multitouch installation will engage visitors at the Finland House in Rio de Janeiro during the 2016 Summer Olympics. The Finland House will for the first time serve as a meeting point for business events and visitors at the Olympics. The venue is a stylish neoclassical building – a perfect place for a high-class digital attraction.

The 4 meter wide and 1.5 meter high multitouch video wall enables multiple persons to use the screen simultaneously and brands to tell their stories on multiple levels. From the screen view, it is possible to navigate through different industries to the presentation material of a specific company. The multimedia experience takes the audience on a tour of Finnish talent in the cleantech industry, whilst giving an opportunity to drill down into detailed information on a product level. For smaller and larger Finnish cleantech companies, it is a unique opportunity to present visually compelling, interactive product stories and get noticed in the hectic event environment!

Stereoscape Presented Virtual Reality’s Business Opportunities in Seinäjoki

By | News

On Thursday 31st of March Seinäjoki in Western Finland was the meeting point for companies, students and researches interested in virtual reality. “Virtuaalitodellisuus nyt” (Finnish for “Virtual Reality Now”) seminar and mini exhibition arranged by SeAMK (Seinäjoki College for Applied Sciences) gathered a good number of audience interested in seeing and learning more about where virtual reality is today and what it can be used for. The seminar served a good mix of presentations from pioneering companies in virtual reality while the mini exhibition allowed visitors a real-life taste of how virtual reality is used in different fields; from comics and gaming to marketing and design, from construction and architecture to real estate or research and education.

One of the speakers at the seminar was Juuso Pihamaa from Stereoscape. In his presentation Juuso concentrated rather on pointing out the benefits and competitive advantage companies have reached using virtual reality rather than just showcasing different solutions. Sharing examples and experiences from world’s leading companies like Ford or Rolls Royce Juuso showed how companies have managed to create real competitive advantage and considerable cost savings by using virtual reality in, for example, R&D and production. Using virtual reality in marketing can be a good way to lower the threshold for getting familiar with virtual reality, said Juuso. The results from marketing might not always be that easily quantifiable but it can deliver results none the less. From this Juuso told an example from Stereoscape’s own case, a virtual reality solution delivered to Neste earlier this year. At the exhibition where it was used people queued at the Neste stand to try it out and then left the stand with a smile on their faces.

In Seinäjoki Stereoscape also had a stand at the mini exhibition where Antti Granqvist demonstrated two different solutions. One was the solution created by Stereoscape for Neste where the visitors got the opportunity to travel into an engine of a car together with Neste’s renewable diesel. The other, “Walk the plank” created by WorldViz – one of Stereoscape’s partners – took the visitors for a virtual trapeze walk. Although quite many of the visitors already had some previous experience of virtual reality, a comment that Antti heard often during the day was:

“Wow, I did’t know you could create a feeling that is this real!”

All together the event in Seinäjoki was a positive experience. It demonstrated that there is a lot of potential in virtual reality and that the interest for its commercial use is increasing.

The presentations from the seminar can be watched on Youtube – Juuso’s presentation (in Finnish) starts at ca 51 min.

Stereoscape’s Digital Marketing Manager Saana Häkkinen highlighted that the physical store will remain the primary retail touchpoint for consumers in the future, but it will become more omni-channel, a combination of physical and virtual. Consumers’ shopping behavior has changed and the whole retail sector is changing dramatically alongside it. Retailers have to create better omni-channel experiences in order to keep up with the developing and changing needs of customers.
