Hi there, my name is Andrea Carignano, co-founder and CEO of Seac02. Starting from today, me and my colleagues will try to cover in this blog topics like Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality, but also share thoughts about market trends, marketing, new thechnologies and technology applied to the visual arts.
Today I’d like to introduce you Eligo, our latest product. Eligo is an authoring tool to create vertical applications based on Augmented Reality and/or Virtual reality technologies. Eligo has been thought and developed from the scratch to be easily used by media creators and media agencies, even with very limited VR and AR skills.
What is Eligo?
Eligo is the first solution on the market mixing the best in class realtime rendering engine for hyper-realistic visualization and the best in class tracking technologies: tag tracking, object tracking, texture tracking (more to come), and a complete support to interaction devices: touch screens, multitouch screens, 3D mices, joysticks stereo and auto stereo devices, VR googles, inertial tracking devices and many others.
The user interface of the application can be made using any of the most popular web developing technologies, including Flash, HTML/JS, AJAX, Silverlight and C#.
What can you do with Eligo?
To make thing more clear, let me show you an Eligo application we built and delivered last month to Rivolta, an italian company. Rivolta produces and sells “taylor made shoes”: when a customer enters the shop, the store clerk performs a 3D scanning of the buyer’s feet to get the perfect shape of the feet for the production of the shoes. Then, using the Eligo-powered front-end, the buyer itself is able to costumize all of the shoes parameters from a virtual configurator, and when the process is completed, he can try-on its costumized pair of shoes in realtime, in a mirror-like experience.
Next week we’ll publish all the technical informations about the project. In the meantime, here’s a short demo video we prepared.
