3D can change the world, not just your viewing experience
Most people have come across the entertainment capabilities of 3D, but some people are working on changing, rather than entertaining, the world.
Using the tagline ‘if we ask the right questions, we can change the world’, this film highlights the work that Dassault Systèmes have done in enabling a project to provide fresh drinking water for those who need it.
Utilising the fresh water captured in naturally drifting icebergs has long been the dream of French engineer George Mougin. He had the idea of towing them to where the fresh water would be best needed.
Now, using the Dassault Systèmes 3D Experience Plaftorm, Georges’ IceDream project has been proven to be technically feasible.
By using the collective knowledge of an international network of scientific gurus, and the latest scientific simulation technologies to integrate complex oceanographic and meteorological information, Georges may be about to pioneer a new wave in the water and energy production industry.
Through 3D virtual experiences and scientific simulation, Georges has recently been able to test many scenarios in a short amount of time and take major steps ahead in his project.
And it’s a project that is clearly needed. Almost a billion humans across the world are still without access to drinking water, while more than 2.5 billion have no water purification systems.
Take a look at the film and click through to find out more about the IceDream project and the 3D Experience Platform. Then take some time to think about the sort of questions you could ask that could change the world.
