3Dcamp Dublin & Irish VR meetup

Thu, 12 Jul 2018
18:30 - 23:59

Our July meetup will feature presentations, demos and discussions. More details to follow shortly. Presentations (1) How Fully Immersive VR is Transforming Healthcare Training "The demands of surgical training go beyond just virtual visual experiences. Surgeons and physicians are looking for fully immersive, multi-sensory virtual environments. Combine real patient data, real case scans, real surgical instruments and realistic haptic and tactile feel; then immerse this in a Virtual Operating Room and this will be the game changer." Brad Wrigley is the COO and a Co-founder of Marion Surgical, a Cork and Toronto based company. Brad comes from 20+ yrs working in the BPO Consulting and Tech Industry (but still claims not to be a techie). Marion Surgical was formed to address the real problem of truly and accurately simulating surgical training in a VR OR. Their simulator solution combines a hardware layer using haptic robotics, medical instruments and Oculus headset and a software/cloud layer providing multiple and customizable VR operating experiences to surgeons. See how it works here. Marion Surgical's first product launched in May 2018 at the AUA conference in San Francisco. (2) Training Medical Professionals to Analyse Microscopy Datasets in Mixed Reality Analysis of medical samples, whether for disease diagnosis or drug development, often involves interpreting complex datasets captured from high-resolution medical microscopes. Training medical professionals to acquire or improve this interpretive skill is traditionally carried out via face-to-face group-based training sessions using reference images and models. Sentireal is working with Andor Technologies to improve learning outcomes and knowledge retention in this training area using multi-user mixed-reality experiences created for the Microsoft Hololens. Dr. David Trainor is the CEO of Sentireal, a training technology company based in Belfast. Sentireal's software and media generates personalised content using AI and presents that content using VR/AR/MR technologies. This combination provides "personal immersive learning" and Sentireal applies this to a number of training sectors, with medicine and healthcare being the largest of these. David is also the Co-Chair of the VR/AR Association's industry committee for Training.

Damien Meade is a current member in the Irish defence forces with 14yrs service, He was a Co-founder of OCTAGON GAMES and recently OCTAGON SIMULATIONS, during his time with OCTAGON GAMES he was the lead artist, He has also developed 3D assets for many game development agencies as a freelancer and assets for flight simulations, both aircraft and scenery. Damien as a simulation enthusiast set up OCTAGON SIMULATIONS in 2016 to produce military simulations designed around technology used by our forces as a proof of concept to demonstrate to the Army that custom simulations can provide better training to our forces. Damien is currently taking lead on the SIMPAL simulation system which he designed for military simulations.Damien has developed 2 working demos for the Army and is now currently developing a helicopter rescue simulation to improve crew refinement for the Irish Air Corp. MFC Simulation for mortar fire in the Glen Of Imaal (Current training grounds for the Irish Defence Forces.) MOWAG APC driving and gunnery simulation for crew refinement in tactical environments. EC135P2 Helicopter crew refinement simulation (Pilots and winch operator) for the Irish Air Corps. (2)
