The keys for the ICT transformation in teaching.

Stimulo, in collaboration with Andreu Ibañez and his Google Developer Group Spainteam, supports SIMO education principals through Liquid Galazy LAB project. We have presented a first iteration of what will be the new box for the AIY Voice Kit from Google, DIY version of the Google Assistant that we will integrate in the control of the Liquid Galaxy. Both for the general version and the specific version of Education in which we are working. The presentation was held at  XENON COMPUTER booth 14 1D13.

The aim of this project is to create a free, 3D printable open source box available to everyone when necessary.

what is Liquid Galaxy project?

The Liquid Galaxy platform utilizes a cluster of computers, controllers, and multiple displays to provide an immersive panoramic experience. Starting as a Google 20% project, the Liquid Galaxy can now be found in over 50 permanent locations globally, as well as numerous conferences and events. The core parts of the Liquid Galaxy are open source: scripts to sync the view across application instances, as well as scripts to adjust the viewing angle of a 3D rendered environment (such as Google Earth).
