March 22-24, 2017, PS-Tech will be attending the 19th Laval Virtual conference in Laval, France

Laval Virtual is one of the most important events in Europe showcasing innovations and new technologies. Virtual reality and augmented reality are the core to the show.

At Laval Virtual, we will showcase our tracking systems and the integration of our tracking system in a medical workstation.

We will further join a round table about Virtual Reality and Immersive Technologies for Health Professionals. In the last few years, the health sector has seized many technologies to assist professionals in their gestures, training, diagnostics, etc. Can we measure the effectiveness of these technologies? Are they already obvious in certain sectors? This round table will address user cases and user feedback.

Looking forward to seeing you at Laval Virtual 2017, booth A9!!

May 31, 2013 PS-Tech’s Personal Space Station is featured in Bits & Chips

31 May 2013, Eindhoven, The Netherlands PS-Tech’s Personal Space Station is featured in Bits & Chips.

The article addresses how the Fontys Hogeschool Eindhoven uses Virtual Reality to solve various issues in the medical and technical fields. http://www.bits-chips.nl/nieuws/bekijk/artikel/virtual-realitysystemen-lossen-beloften-eindelijk-in.html (Original article in Dutch)

“In our lab we use the PSS for VR projects where 3D objects need to be investigated and examined accurately. The PSS is a desktop VR workstation developed by the Amsterdam based company PS-Tech. As a user you hold 2 specially designed objects with markers. Because your hands are behind a mirror you do not see it, instead you see a virtual object in the mirror– for example a scanned antique vase – exactly at the place and with the orientation of the physical object. Thus, the virtual object in the mirror moves exactly the same way as the physical object. Visually it seems like you have it in your hands and you are reviewing the object, analyze and present it in an intuitive manner. The two-handed 3D interaction combined with the use of mouse and keyboard gives a natural, simple and highly effective way of interacting with 3D data sets. We could even examine medical volumetric datasets in the same way.”
