Looking to bring together the visual richness of VR with sound and feel, visualisation specialist, Optis has launched a new product, HIM 2017 Human Ergonomic Evaluation.

If you consider the rapidly advancing state of truly immersive VR capabilities we have now and how far that’s going to extend in the future, it’s interesting that most vendors are focusing on the visual aspects.

When we conduct a design review, there is much more than pure visual properties and feedback at play. There’s the sense of feel from holding and interacting with a product. There’s how it sounds as well. How many times have you found a product satisfying, not because of how it works, but also how it looks, sounds and feels?

Forget the hipster vinyl takeover, its time to get up in the loft, down to the charity shops, and dig around anywhere you might have left your old cassettes.

Elbow is a compact, clip-on concept for a modern reinterpretation of the humble cassette player - something returning to public conscience with the likes of Guardians of the Galaxy in cinemas. 

Its most prominent feature is the biaxial arm: It rotates in two directions – upward motion enables the insertion of a cassette, while sideways motion allows to manually switch playing direction.

A new plane segmentation allows the use of different layer thicknesses in one part, optimising it more easily for production

Selective sintering expert EOS has unveiled its latest software for the 3D printing process, as it looks towards pushing the technology to industrial process levels.

Together with data preparation software like Siemens NX or Materialise Magics, the new EOS software provides an new user interface with greater freedom for application-specific parameter optimisation and easier part optimisation, which should allow for increased productivity and part quality.

EOSPrint 2.0 is now available for its metal 3D printing systems EOS M 290 and EOS M 400, while future iterations will include support for all current EOS metal systems and future polymer systems.
