FILOSOFEST | VR philosophy experiments

FILOSOFEST | VR philosophy experiments

Together with Frederik Theuwis I hosted an evening session for around 25 philosophy students and professionals at BANK15 in Tilburg, where we experimented with custom made VR environments to encourage in depth interaction among the participants. With some simple modifications of 360 degree photography we created an alternate dimension of the same space we were in that evening – paired up the players and gave them different challenges. Based on the interactions that took place, participant responses and everyone’s overall enthusiasm the event boosted our confidence that there’s a lot of potential in using VR for abstract research purposes.  ...

SINGULARITY U | 3DEMO’s

I’m regularly invited by SingularityU The Netherlands to host the tech demo about digital manufacturing during their innovation programs. Using 3D printed samples of applications with an interesting story I’m simultaneously showcasing many different printable materials (like metal, full color, ceramics, silicone / rubber, wood, high temp, ultra detail, …). With a complementary visual presentation I bring another 50+ stories with me collected in themes like software, hardware, medical, military, fashion and promising experiments. Sometimes I start 3D scanning the participants, and last time even ended up combining their busts with game- or movie characters – edited on the spot and produced right after.        ...

3D STORYTELLING | Metropool Regio Eindhoven

In a collaboration with Ralf Fleuren / Bliqsem we took the team of MRE on a journey to the heart of their corporate story. In one single day we moved from words to symbols to visuals and finally (self-designed) 3D objects. These were 3D printed afterwards and used as tangible tools for dialogue in their developments ahead.  ...

LEMON AWARD | NHTV Breda 2016

As part of a guest lecture at NHTV Hotel and Facility Management about prototyping I created a 3D printed trophy for the best failure of the day. We wanted to communicate how important it is in a design process to dare and make mistakes.   Lemon is a synonym for failure, but when life gives you lemons – make lemonade.! Just like the invention of Post-It’s: a failure in glue development made it semi-sticky. Someone made the very smart call to turn it into a product you can easily peel off....
