Rochester Institute of Technology & The MITRE Corporation

  By Docutopia   4.30.11

In the Spring of 2011, we were approached about illustrating a mock-up for a collaborative project between The Rochester Institute of Technology and MITRE Corporation.  The technology involved a real time tele-collaboration system that combined a video wall with an interactive touch table, and the team was looking for presentation material to convey how the system could be used across several platforms and environments.

After several meetings with MITRE's technology evangelists and RIT's developers, a Docutopia team was created:

Jon Schull - Project Liason
Ben Rubin - Project Manager, Creative Lead
Joanna Eberts - Project Illustrator
Sara Wick - Project Illustrator

Illustration Narrative
We decided on a 3 panel format to sequentially illustrate a dialogue covering all of the main platforms and environments the technology was being pitched for.  The first panel describes a permanent EdgeTable installation with custom integrated hardware inside an office environment.  Their table shows a map with an icon in the shape of a stealth aircraft.  The second panel continues the conversation with a military officer stationed on a base.  He is using a non-permanent installation configured with a mobile projector and laptop, as is the man in the tie on the other end.  Both look over the map with the aircraft icon and we see a route has been labeled.  The last panel shows a marine in the field.  He is using heads-up eyewear technology and a stylus to draw the path of the aircraft icon for the military officer on the other end.  Above the marine, we see the stealth aircraft flying in the distance.

  1. When machining starts, the chopping tool makes contact with the workpiece, chopping away layers of material. The tool and/or workpiece is moved and/or quickly rotated in accordance with the G-Code directions so that cuts are made in exactly the proper locations till the half is completed. The range of affordable steel alloys and plastics combined with the pace of our skilled machinists makes our online CNC machining services a great option for prototyping. Because CNC machining can reduce a high variety of totally dense, durable materials like aluminum 5052 and stainless-steel, it's good for creating fixtures or molds. We can supply additional CNC plastics from within our community of Direct CNC 5,000 machine outlets.
