photography scanning for all needs
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.
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
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.”
wAVE Project is led by Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise
Partnership (LEP), Cornwall Museums Partnership, and Falmouth University. The

exciting immersive technologies.
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.”

British Coast has enormous economic potential and this government is determined
to see it thrive all year round. That’s why by 2020 the Government will have
invested over £200 million in our much loved seaside areas through dedicated
programmes like Coastal Communities Fund to help in generating jobs and
analysis has shown that this has been money well spent with every £1 invested
having the potential to create an up to £8 boost to our coastal economies. To
