CES attendees can visit the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center and the Dassault Systèmes’ booth – #8300 specifically – to see the Rize One 3D printer and take part in a 3D printed giveaway.
Rize President and CEO, Andy Kalambi, will be available to demonstrate how Rize “supports Dassault Systèmes’ inclusive strategy for enabling collaborative technology ecosystems to develop and deliver new and sustainable solutions in consumer-centered sectors, such as healthcare, as well as in commercial and industrial sectors.”
Global entrepreneurs access 3D printing
The French software developer has chosen CES 2018 to announce a Global Entrepreneur Program to support startups, entrepreneurs and makers. The program leverages Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, applications, expertise, and community of mentors and services
Already more than 1,000 startups, entrepreneurs and makers are in the Global Entrepreneur Program, that gives access to range of technology – including 3D printing. Other news from Dassault Systemes this week, includes a three-year contract with Toyota Motor Europe to develop next generation digital marketing solutions for all car launches in Europe.
Toyota, Pizza Hut and Black Mirror
While unconnected with Dassault Systemes, Toyota has also generated a lot of coverage at CES 2018 for their e-Palette driverless pod.
These self-driving vehicles are part of a concept that shows each base unit a configurable for a specific function. A video illustrates how a mobile Fab Lab with a robotic arm could allow engineers and designers to take deadline brinkmanship to the next level, or how a burning man style desert festival could be summoned with a couple of clicks on an app.
I particularly enjoyed the idea that future spectators at a boxing match in the desert might enjoy sushi or even visit the mobile gym – during a sports event, in the desert.
The e-Palette design is reminiscent of Local Motors’ Olli – the 3D printed autonomous shuttle bus that recently secured $1 billion worth of operational support. Comparisons have also been drawn with Season 4 of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror. Specifically, a Pizza Hut collaboration using the e-Palette concept for a fully autonomous delivery vehicle.
