As mentioned under “benefits“ designers can easily split off animation sequences (see buttons below animation). In the near future there will be interfaces to blend strategic data and dataSculptures into augmented/ virtual reality (AR/VR) environments. Development will be driven by the defense and automotive industry: The German VDI bets on augmented reality due to its better integration into processes. With bigger 3D printers and falling production costs - triggered by demand of the building industry- the (formerly militäry) sandbox may return as a stimulation tool(see illustration above), even to populate headquarters and events to be accompanied by AR/VR devices.
MeliesArt presently turns to morphing the “skins“ of dataSculptures into surfaces that can be queried by data pens and flexible OLED panels, based on a recent patent of Volker Schweisfurth. This will facilitate “opening the content space“ of all the results that are hidden behind such models.
