DaVinci 3D Exhibition, Milan

The entire National Museum of Science and Technology “Leonardo da Vinci” was hosted a collective of young unestablished designers under Tom Dixon’s MOST exhibition.
The talk around town discussed how MOST design festival’s context did the Designers block exhibitors favors, good green designs shining a lot at this year’s show.

Several 3D Experiences created with 3DS 3DVIA Studio were presented for the first time during the event, including:

The Da Vinci Virtual Museum, displaying 3D objects rebuilt from Da Vinci sketches, in the multi-user online platform 3DS 3DVIAScenes (link). Walk around, discover some historical facts, understand and share Da Vinci’s concepts in an online 3D environment.

The Paddle Boat interactive experience where the complete concept as well as mechanics are explained in a very beautiful 3D context. Those of you equipped with Xbox gamepads will also be able to play with it (link).
