Demonstrating the innumerable capabilities of the new MiniTec Profile Series 30 range, we recently supplied interactive exhibition display cabinets for the National Physical Laboratory’s ‘Super Sight’ stand at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition that explored augmented reality – the placement of computer generated images into the human eye’s view.
With its nominal sectional size of 30 x 30 mm – which suits smaller structures – the wheeled cabinets allowed the exhibition organisers to customise the information panels for the specific subject matter. We also provided additional engineered equipment for a laser enclosure that allow visitors to set the angle for the ‘total internal refraction’ cabinet shown in the attached image.
The newProfile Series 30 range also lowers the cost base for light-duty machine applications, with eight new profiles in sectional sizes of 23 x 16, 23 x 30, 30 x 30 and 30 x 60 (mm) and combinations of smooth sides and T slot profiles that maximise flexibility and aesthetic appearance.
The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition, ran from 30 June to 5 July 2015 and included a stand by the National Physical Laboratory and TrueLife Optics, about augmented reality. This was aimed at school students and the general public and was a great success with over 15,000 people using the demonstration consoles.
