First stop: TechnoFrolics Introduces the Packaging Industry to the FrameGlide|Spin Browser Technology

Spin-gliding through video - a popular museum technology pioneers new frontiers.

SOMERVILLE, Mass., July 16, 2019 – How do you make a tradeshow booth larger than life?  Open a virtual door onto industrial plants, processes, and machines in action via interactive hands-on video explorations.

The technology at play - TechnoFrolics’ FrameGlide | Spin Browser™ (FG|SB) video explorer - works with conventional video, potentially allowing businesses to leverage existing content.
Why is the packaging industry particularly apt to benefit from this system?

While the FG|SB allows diverse customizations, it is the core experience that is most important.

“The difference between watching a video and interactively exploring with the FG|SB is like the difference between being an airplane passenger and piloting the plane yourself.” states inventor David Durlach. “Even the most ordinary of phenomena and processes become riveting when explored through an interactive lens of time and space.”

From moments to many hours can be fluidly, swiftly traversed. When points of interest are discovered, content can be precisely, slowly explored. (Exhibits in museum settings include for example a 16 hour boat tour of Lake Champlain, including side trips to local points of interest.)
Durlach’s design workshop TechnoFrolics offers no-cost 1 to 2 week loans of their FG|SB video explorer demo units to qualifying organizations. Businesses may also choose to “test drive” rental systems, configured with their own content, at the tradeshow.
(This is one in a series as the FG|SB - with its roots in the museum world – travels far afield exploring new frontiers.)
