AYE3D: Revolutionizing 3D Displays with the Freedom Monitor

July 5th, 2024 by Sanjay Gangal

AYE3D, founded in 2019, has quickly established itself as a pioneer in the field of autostereoscopic 3D displays. This Montreal-based company’s flagship product, the Freedom 3D monitor, offers a glasses-free 3D viewing experience that is set to revolutionize various industries. Mario Genest, CEO of AYE3D, recently shared insights into the company’s journey and the innovative technology behind their groundbreaking product.

The Genesis of AYE3D

AYE3D was born out of the vision to create a truly immersive 3D experience without the need for additional eyewear or head-mounted displays. The company’s co-founder and CTO, a visionary with a longstanding passion for 3D technology, filed his first patent for a 3D display in 1994. Over the years, he developed several 3D display technologies, initially requiring glasses, which were licensed to companies in the US. However, feedback from customers highlighted a strong preference for a glasses-free solution, prompting further innovation.

By 2021, AYE3D successfully commercialized its first glasses-free 3D display. The Freedom 3D monitor leverages cutting-edge eye-tracking technology to deliver two different images to each eye, creating a compelling 3D effect without the need for additional accessories.

Pioneering STEM Education with Drones: A Conversation with Hansol Hong, CEO of Robolink

April 26th, 2024 by Sanjay Gangal

At the recent Xponential 2024 Conference, I had the pleasure of speaking with Hansol Hong, the CEO of Robolink, a company at the forefront of integrating drones into STEM education. Founded over a decade ago, Robolink has made significant strides in making STEM learning exciting and practical by using drones as a primary teaching tool.

CoDrone EDU

Robolink’s impact is substantial, with their programs currently being implemented in approximately 4,000 U.S. schools and expanding globally. Hansol explained that their educational approach uses drones to teach coding and robotics in a practical, hands-on way that resonates with students. “When students program our drones, they see their code come to life as the drones move according to their instructions,” Hansol said. This dynamic method of learning not only engages students but also helps them understand complex concepts in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

The Robolink curriculum includes both hardware—the drones and their accessories—and the software needed to program them. Moreover, the company provides comprehensive learning materials for both students and teachers, ensuring that educators are well-prepared to guide their students through the coursework.

Jack Dangermond’s Vision for the Future: Transforming Geospatial Technology with ArcGIS

March 4th, 2024 by Sanjay Gangal

At the 2024 Esri Federal GIS Conference, Jack Dangermond, president of Esri, offered an enlightening glimpse into the future of geospatial technology, underpinned by the robust capabilities of the ArcGIS platform. Esri’s vision, as articulated by Dangermond, centers on leveraging ArcGIS to transform how professionals across various domains utilize geospatial data to drive efficiencies, innovation, and actionable insights.

ArcGIS emerges not merely as a software solution but as an ecosystem designed to accommodate a diverse array of geospatial needs – from intricate mapping and analytics to sophisticated imagery processing and real-time data management. Its unparalleled ability to assimilate and normalize disparate data types has positioned ArcGIS as an essential tool for entities around the globe.

The cornerstone of ArcGIS’s dominance in the GIS domain is its flexibility and open architecture. It enables myriad implementation strategies to suit different organizational needs, especially for mission-critical applications that demand robustness akin to the most reliable IT systems.

At the heart of the platform’s widespread adoption is its function as a comprehensive content sharing hub. ArcGIS Online alone boasts approximately 60 million shared maps and datasets, fostering an environment where billions of maps are generated daily. This “living atlas” is a testament to the platform’s capacity for growth, continuously integrating data from authoritative sources to serve the GIS community’s evolving needs.
