Provisur AR

The future demands having integrated systems that work together to give you a competitive edge. Artishock can help to make the manuals for your complex systems and have them be intuitive through smart usage of Augmented Reality.

Artishock made 2 apps for Provisur. One app for your (iOS/Android) smart device and one for the Microsoft Hololens.

Behind the scenes of Stedin

This Stedin Augmented Reality (AR) app is a great example of how to bring a low-interest product like electric power to the spot in an interesting way.
The app is intended to inform residents of the neighborhoods where transmission system operator Stedin serves. Or, for example, to help recruit engineers at study and career choice events.



The AR experience  -an app available for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets- shows what happens behind the scenes of Stedin’s electricity network. In the app you can view a demo in a transformer house or take an educational tour. With this tour you can see in which areas Stedin is active, and what happens in case of a power failure and how to fix it.


How to experience this app?
1. Download the app for iOS/Apple or Android
2. Download the image/marker here
3. Start the app and point towards the image marker.
4. Experience the Augmented Reality world of Stedin.





Aegir Marine – Hololens project

Platipus has been working for the technical realization of a project for Aegir Marine with AR being used to support marine engineers in their work. It’s an innovative project because we’ve been working on some beautiful visualizations in which mechanics can look across engine parts and using real-time sensor data to see what’s happening in the engine parts. The sensor data is visualized information about rotational speeds, temperatures, expansions and vibrations.

For this product we used the Microsoft Hololens. This is a Augmented Reality headset that, in stead of being in another world in Virtual Reality, let you augment the real world around you. As a HoloLens wearer, you’ll still see the real world in front of you. You can walk around and talk to others without worrying about bumping into walls. This way, we could show the mechanics what’s going on inside one of their thrusters.



Let us explain the project in short; We’ve placed several sensors in a trusther ( CT-175 ). In the first picture below you see the data of our temperature sensors and RPM sensors visualised. We’ve build a computer application that collects the data from those sensors and stores it in a database. In parallel we’ve implemented a HoloLens application that takes the data from our database and projects it holographically onto the parts that it’s measuring from. The marine engineer is now possessing the super power of seeing inside this gearbox and seeing the precise speeds and temperatures in there. How cool and practical is that?!

At the unveiling of the first phase of our project, dutch astronaut André Kuipers tested our app and stayed in his HoloLens for 15 minutes completely mesmerised by the magical thing that we’ve created. Platipus received great compliments from the astronaut who recognized the future of technical maintenance in this production.

The Friendly Pear puts a smile on your face

Migo, the friendly pear
The Migo pear is quite a unique pear, because unlike other pears, this one doesn’t drip as much. This makes it the ultimate pear on the go!  
The launch campaign for this new taste sensation started late- October 2016. The Migo pear app was created to support this campaign and lets you play with the concept of smileys mixed with “the friendly pear”.


Face Recognition

The  app includes facial recognition software like the well-known Snapchat function, but this one let you put a Migo smiley on your face. You can also get a bunch of smileys by scanning the bottom of the Migo pack with the app.




Meet the travel-friendly pear

During the campaign there were also  video stands (with a build-in iPad Pro) at various train stations in the Netherlands, where people were able to bring a Migo smile to their faces and to become acquainted with this (travel) friendly pear.







How to experience this app?
1. Download the app for iOS/Apple or Android
2. Scan the bottom of the package.
    If you do not have a Migo package:
    Download the image/marker for free (if you want to use the augmented reality part of the app) ;
3. Start the app, use the “Magic wand” and point towards the image marker;
4. Or use the face recognition section to stick smileys on your face;
5. Or use the photo-manipulator to stick smileys on somebody or something else.
