    Machine@Hand 2.0 not only allows instructors to train users by means of VR, but also to create their own modules.

    Fraunhofer IGD of Rostock will be showcasing Machine@Hand 2.0, the beta version of its VR learning environment, at this year’s Hannover Messe. Machine@Hand 2.0 facilitates the creation of effective VR scenarios for training in the use of complex machinery, systems and technical processes. The VR learning environment is combined with an easy-to-use authoring tool. The VR modules can be readily integrated into existing LMS platforms and e-learning modules.

    This year’s slogan for the “Jugend forscht” contest is “Leave a future for the next generation” It is intended to encourage youths to take responsibility and come up with their own ideas and concepts for shaping our world for the future.

    “Jugend forscht” is Europe’s largest contest for youth and young adults in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. For over 50 years, this contest has enjoyed immense popularity. Young people vie for recognition for their experiments and research in seven subjects across two divisions. Every single STEM up-and-comer counts here! This year's edition will take place entirely digitally.

    instant3Dhub is easily connected to existing PLM systems and leverages 3D data of any size and any format on any device within any applications.

    Threedy is a spin-off from Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD in Darmstadt, Germany. It has now raised early-stage venture capital to commercialize its instant3Dhub platform. This platform primarily supports visualization, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) applications, and will initially serve companies in the automotive, aerospace and energy industries, as well as users of building information modeling (BIM) solutions.
