Kinetic Vision’s breadth of expertise and full suite of software and hardware tools helps our clients meet their complex product and system development challenges with efficient concept-to-production solutions.

The Industrial Metaverse

What is the industrial metaverse? Simply put, it’s the unification of every process throughout the product life cycle, from product ideation, design, engineering, manufacturing, quality control, sales and marketing, market research, distribution logistics, through end-use. Digital tools exist today for many of these processes, but they are fragmented into different organizations, in different facilities, and even different countries. Subject matter expertise and data are siloed, and communication is 3D, as two-dimensional information is conveyed with video calls or on screens during live presentations.

The industrial metaverse will change this. All walled processes will be integrated into virtual three-dimensional environments that enhance collaboration and democratize data. Stakeholder communication will transform from 3D to 4D, as virtual environments will be photorealistic and navigable. Products and systems will function virtually, allowing for rapid testing and optimization. Further down the life cycle, clothing will be virtually worn, and products evaluated by the end consumer as part of the virtual retail shopping experience – all from the comfort of their living room. You can then show off your new purchases to your friends in the social metaverse.

Every process throughout the product life cycle will be positively impacted by the industrial metaverse, but the transition won’t be easy. Creating realistic and accurate virtual environments, with functioning products and systems, including real-time, human-driven avatars, requires expertise in design, engineering, CAD, CGI, software and AR/VR development, plus motion capture and digital asset creation. If AI systems are included, such as intelligent video analytics, then synthetic data and machine learning engineering knowledge are also required. Most companies aren’t organized to bring these multidisciplinary teams together quickly, but at Kinetic Vision we do this every day. We’d love to show you how and team up to solve your most complex challenges.

Our Difference

No other company has the breadth of expertise under one roof that we do, and those multidisciplinary skills allow us to solve seemingly impossible problems and create innovative products and systems that others cannot. Even the development of a single "smart" device requires industrial design, mechanical design and engineering, electrical design and engineering, hardware and software development, machine learning, visual communication media, prototyping, and possibly short-run production. Our "one stop shopping" model creates a simpler, unified customer experience, with considerable efficiencies that produce significant time and cost savings when compared to traditional multi-vendor approaches.

Our Tools

In spite of tremendous advances in computer-aided design technology, the connection between ideas and finished products is still best accomplished by human hands. Hands that sketch concepts, run machinery, smooth and paint, and assemble and test. We value both the virtual and the physical embodiment of creativity and provide our talented craftspeople with state-of-the-art tools for each. These tools include software to design, virtually test, visualize, immersively experience, market and sell, plus the machinery and equipment to quickly turn your idea into reality. Our prototype lab features:

  • Small and large format additive manufacturing
  • 4-axis machining with automatic tool change
  • Traditional cutting, drilling and lathe operations
  • Injection molding including 24-hour part capability
  • Laser cutting
  • Thermoforming
  • Painting and finishing
  • Separate, secure wet lab

We also will test and validate your design in our inspection lab, which features:

  • NDT testing including Computed Tomography (CT), laser scanning and mechanical evaluation
  • Material tension/compression/shear testing at high strain rates with environmental chamber
  • Digital Image Correlation (DIC) system for material property evaluation
  • High-speed video (up to 24,000 fps) with data analysis
  • Material coefficient of friction testing and evaluation
  • Collaborative robot arms for automation of almost any inspection process

Virtual Reality (VR) is rapidly changing how products, systems and facilities are created. Powerful immersive experiences create collaboration and understanding among project teams even when located thousands of miles apart. Product design, function, quality, safety, user training, marketing and customer feedback now can all be evaluated virtually. Kinetic Vision is an industry leader, with a dedicated VR lab featuring:

  • Support for all VR hardware and platforms
  • Proprietary, streamlined in-house VR development pipeline
  • Hybrid virtual-physical environments that create hyper-realistic experiences

Providing all aspects of product development in an in-house, end-to-end solution creates significant efficiencies from team collaboration and communication. That saves time and money. Come to us with an idea and you will leave with functioning prototypes and a tested, validated, manufacturing-ready design and the marketing plan and virtual experiences to make it a success.
