Atmotube: air pollution monitor

Atmotube puts air pollution monitoring in your hands, and enables users to share readings in real-time and via social media. Earlier this year, I participated in a COMIT community day workshop which asked us to think about ways in which air quality might be monitored for construction workers in tunnels. As a cyclist and someone employed at …

Visual-Wise: immersive 3D on a phone

London startup Visual-Wise can take an architectural model and, with a little help from a cardboard holder, turn your smartphone into a 3D headset. I took a quick trip into Google Campus in London’s Shoreditch yesterday to talk to engineering duo Megan Masterson and Reuben Carter of 2014-founded London-based startup Visual-Wise. This offers the immersive …

COMIT–where BIM meets augmented reality, point clouds and QR Codes (among other things)

Two weeks ago, I mentioned COMIT, Construction Opportunities for Mobile IT, and its forthcoming conference on how smart mobile devices can be used to add value to BIM. Since then (last week), I have attended the COMIT community day and AGM (held at BSRIA, Bracknell) and, from the round-table discussions, it was clear that some …

Android-based Smartbuilder1 launched

Almost a year ago, I wrote about Dublin-based software developer SmartBuilder Software after managing director Peter Daly and I met up and discussed construction collaboration technologies and mobile solutions. At the time, he was developing his first iPhone application, but I later learned that he had decided not to continue developing on the Apple platform. Instead he …

BuildItLive.com targets iPad collaborators

Over the past year or so, I’ve talked several times about iPhone applications and collaboration in the architecture, engineering and construction, AEC, space. I have seen prototype stand-alone products developed purely for the iPhone (eg: Smartbuilder – post), but most tools have been developed by existing construction collaboration technology providers and extend their platforms to …

Collaborate – via your printer

Hewlett-Packard has rarely featured in ExtranetEvolution.com – which is hardly surprising as HP is mainly known in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) circles as a provider of print hardware solutions, not collaborative software applications. Indeed, I learned last week that there are now around 1.5 million HP DesignJet large format printers in use, and that …

Still keeping an Eye on Woobius

I met up with Bob Leung from Woobius a couple of times last week (including at the launch of StickyWorld‘s Collaboration Cafe at London’s Building Centre – pwcom post), and he updated me on progress with Woobius Eye (see post). Now honoured with its own website, the latest stage of Woobius Eye’s development was the …
