PROGRESSIVE CORNISH BUSINESSES IMMERSE THEMSELVES IN THE 3D WORLD

Free ‘Immersive Tech Introductions’ showcase how Cornish businesses can utilise 3D photography scanning for all needs  

New immersive technologies and digital platforms are offering a range of easy and cost-effective methods to communicate and market products and propositions of all kinds. Now, thanks to Coastal Community funding, the world of 3D scanning and photography, and the new and exciting accessibility it delivers, will be available for free for Cornish businesses in a workshop in Bude in January.

The session is part of a series of innovative cost-free ‘Immersive Tech Introductions’ for Cornish businesses of all sizes, types and sectors. These opportunities have been opened up via the Coastal Communities funding gained by the new wAVE project, led by Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), Cornwall Museums Partnership and Falmouth University. Across the next 12 months, organisations across Cornwall can gain access to new technological knowledge and skills that could significantly boost the awareness, efficiency and success of their business.

Taking place at the Parkhouse Centre in Bude between 10.30am and 2.30pm on January 23rd, the free 3D scanning session will introduce local Cornish businesses to the potential of how 3D photography scanning can be applied to disability, business, education, hospitality and property needs.

This session will be led by Chris Wood, director of Ocean 3D™, a leading 3D Virtual Reality photography scanning business. Ocean 3D was the first business in the world, without physical premises, to be awarded the ‘Autism Friendly’ award by the National Autistic Society and is currently working with a number of NHS trusts. Ocean 3D apply a pro-health, pro-accessibility ethos to help businesses become more accessible to people with autism, anxiety, reduced mobility and accessibility issues.

Chris Wood, director of Ocean 3D™, said: “Businesses need to realise that the potential for 3D photography scanning stems way beyond being an immersive and captivating marketing tool, it is also an incredible way to increase the accessibility of your business. This is the ideal session for businesses that focus on inclusion and availability, but it is also highly relevant for sectors such as education, hospitality and property. I look forward to meeting with businesses in Bude on the 23rd of January.”

The innovative wAVE Project is led by Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), Cornwall Museums Partnership, and Falmouth University. The project has received a significant amount of funding to upskill and train individuals and businesses across Cornwall in new and exciting immersive technologies.

Amy Shakespeare, wAVE Community Project Manager at Cornwall Museums Partnership, said: “We’re proud to be leading the wAVE project alongside Falmouth University on behalf of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly LEP. The first session at Bedruthan Hotel focussed on screenless browsing and it was a tremendous success with a full house on the day. We hope to repeat this with the second session. Throughout 2020, we will be covering different areas of the emerging immersive tech industry, showing how they can benefit Cornish businesses of all shapes and sizes, all free of charge.”

The session will include a free lunch - please note any dietary requirements when booking your free ticket via Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/immersive-tech-introductions-3d-tours-tickets-80848188107?ref=estw

More than 85% of Brazil’s population live in urban areas. The country has 17 cities with over 1 million inhabitants. Sao Paulo is the largest megalopolis in South America with over 16 million people (O3D - Compare this to London with a ‘mere’ 8.9 Million people!). Source

"After a very competitive process, DIT team selected Ocean 3D Ltd to join the 2020 Smart Cities Mission to Brazil. (Ocean 3Ds') solutions and applications have strong potential for scaling up in the market and we will be happy to support you...." UK Gov. Department of International Trade

This Smart Cities business development mission will focus on building partnerships and increase British companies’ knowledge about the Brazilian market needs. It will also better position UK's participants to develop collaborative arrangements with potential Brazilian partners and buyers, enabling them to pursue local business opportunities within selected cities in the Future Cities Programme and further afield.”

Companies invited to attend were ranked and selected by a board of specialists and the Future Cities Programme team in Brazil, who considered the following criteria:

Readiness for technology implementation in Brazil 
Innovation level and applicability of solution in the local market 
Solution alignment with the priority areas of the Future Cities Programme 
Commercial development plan for Brazil 
Social and economic impact of the proposed technology

Chris Wood, Ocean 3D Director said “It is an incredible honour to be picked from such a huge and fiercely competitive group of UK based companies in the future tech business, especially hailing from the far South West of Cornwall”…”To have the opportunity to represent some of the Best of British engineering, technology, business and ideas in the largest city in South America with one of the most diverse groups of needs is awe inspiring. We were only notified on Friday that we had been selected and the event is at the end of March so, to attend, we are going to have to do some serious diary juggling as well as look to our academic and business mentor partners to help with logistics and flights etc.”
