Stereoscape in Japan

By | News

Stereoscape was one of the nine Finnish AR/VR companies selected by Finpro to the MetsäExperience hackathon in Japan. Metsä is a large development project with Metsä Village, a lakeside complex of restaurants, workshops and shops and MoominvalleyPark, a themepark aimed to give the visitors live richening experiences with the Moomins.

Our Key Account Manager Jani Leskinen and Sofware Developer Jussi Korhonen participated the hackathon held in Hanno, Japan on 17. – 19.9. with a mission to innovate content for the park.

“It was great to be part of the MetsäExperience hackathon; long days, lots of innovative ideas, and a great group of hackers”, said Stereoscape’s hackers after returning from Japan.

More news coming up on Metsä and Japan, as the story continues.

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.
