A few months ago we developed an interactive virtual horse using Blender, Papervision and Flash. It was extremely successful, and VetNet with the University of Lincoln have commissioned us to develop a new virtual cat and dog environment for practising vets and students.
This great project involves interactive anatomy, virtual health check tests and first person navigation to show how these animals sense, think and behave! A great project, but looks like some late nights… here’s a sneaky peak.
I stumbled upon an interesting TV programme last night about diagrams. It showed how Florence Nightingale changed British nursing standards by creating the iconic “Rose diagram”, it cleverly indicated the deaths of soldiers in the Crimean war due to poor hygiene standards but also shows the implications if these issues were fixed. Good information graphics can change the world!
Our good friend Tom Featherby currently at Thomas Manss & Company took some time out of his busy schedule to deliver a whole day of lectures, workshops and portfolio critiques to all our Interactive Design students at the University of Lincoln. Some great advice for our third years, we especially enjoyed the “In the Ring” workshop.
