It has been a busy quarter here at Vicon! We successfully launched Origin, our new suite of Location-Based VR products, at Siggraph 2018 and exhibited at multiple life science conferences including WCB, ASB, ISBS and ESMAC. Read below to find out more and see what is coming up next. View email version here.
Origin by Vicon - A range of LBVR products
Siggraph 2018 was the perfect setting to announce Origin, showcasing our interactive virtual reality experience with Dreamscape Immersive at the Vicon booth.
Our three new hardware products and software platform make fully immersive and interactive entertainment experiences easier than ever to create. All Origin information can be found on the website, and all launch videos are on the Vicon Youtube channel.

Featured Case Study: Georgia Tech Robotarium
'Despite seeping into nearly every industry around the world, the field of robotics has a major problem: accessibility. There are countless theories on how robots might be used to benefit humanity, but robotics is an expensive field, mostly controlled by private organizations and well established academic labs with the funds to indulge their experimentation. It’s simply inaccessible to most. That’s where Georgia Tech’s Robotarium comes in. Read the rest of this story on our website.

Conventional Gait Model 2
The Conventional Gait Model 2 (CGM2) has been developed by Dr. Fabien Leboeuf (University of Salford), and partly funded by Vicon. By focusing on areas where it was known improvements could be made, the design of the CGM2 model enhances the accuracy of the Conventional Gait Model whilst maintaining the model’s strengths. It is an open-sourced biomechanical model developed in Python.
CGM2 is backward-compatible, enabling users to compare the model’s outputs against those of Plug-in Gait. pyCGM2 is compatible with versions of Nexus from 2.7 and later. The installer provides the VSTs and the biomechanical model.

BOOM: Biomechanics on our Minds is a podcast we recently discovered here at Vicon, powered by the International Society of Biomechanics and hosted by two biomechanics students at Stanford! Check it out here.
