Elon Musk kept his promise and showed a computer “Iron Man”





Last week we wrote that Elon Musk has found a way to create a 3D-projection system modellingu based on gestures, just like in the movie “Iron Man” and promised to put in a network of video where he creates one of the parts for its missile program SpaceX, and then prints the finished part on 3D-printer. His promise Elon still kept.

Unfortunately, Elon has not created a spectacular three-dimensional holographic projector (although such developments are already underway, such as in Japan) and therefore decided to use a similar system for regular computer monitor. However, even this system allows you to increase or reduce, rotate in different directions 3D-model and clean up unnecessary details in a simple movement of hands.

For those who work or have ever worked with programs 3D-modeling is well known that every such application has a whole bunch of different menus and sub-menus, and work has to remember an infinite number of “hot keys” to once again go to them climb. In the case with the mask, no menu here. All manipulations on the part on the screen Elon produces through his hands in the air.

The system, created using motion capture Leap Motion, a set of different display technologies like virtual reality helmet Oculus Rift and 3D-projector, as well as a modified version of the software Siemens NX (by the way, on the basis of the software projects are being developed for SpaceX) now allows engineers SpaceX of scale, and view objects on the screen at all without touching a computer mouse.

After completing the simulation of the desired details of her already in a real form creates a machine for extruding metal (see 3D-laser printer that works with metal). Musk says that such technology, with due attention and development will be able to make a revolution in computer simulation, because the designers and engineers will be able to almost effortlessly realize just intuitively holographic concept just invented details, feel it, and only then, without such the same type of problems already finished part.

Welcome to the future.
