Biotechnology delivers amazing solutions to healthcare and environmental problems. Since 2007, Digital Radiance has worked closely with the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology's educational outreach division on a number of ground-breaking projects to help the public better understand and participate in this rapidly changing field.
GATR Technologies, an Inc. 500 company in Huntsville, needed a way to quickly teach people about the company's revolutionary inflatable satellite communication system. The problem: how to cost-effectively provide initial training and refresher training on a system that is admittedly quite different from the typical satellite communication system. Digital Radiance provided the solution: an online, videogame-based trainer that guides you through not only the setup and take-down steps, but that also illustrates the inner workings of the system. Now soldiers and first responders understand the system inside and out, with an online, 3D training guide just a click away.
Sci-Quest, the children's hands-on science museum, tapped Digital Radiance to deliver cool video game-like education content for their 50-person, stereoscopice 3D Immersive Theater. As partners on a National Science Foundation grant, Digital Radiance and Sci-Quest developed "Virtual Vortex", a dynamic presentation about severe weather that begins with a deceptively simple question: "How much does a cloud weigh?" Participants are entertained and challenged throughout the 30-minute show to understand the forces that lead to severe storms and tornadoes.
