When it comes to Autodesk, or any other software provider for that matter, what really gets me going is the technology advancements they facilitate. I love seeing new technologies come to fruition, which would go a long way to explaining my futuristic attitude towards most things.
Being constantly on the prowl for innovation means the majority of my internet clicks are diverted towards titles with the word “new” in them. Therefore, it’s not surprising Autodesk Labs is one of my favourite places to reside.
For those who aren’t aware, Autodeks Labs is home to new technologies and collaborative developments that are considered too new to even be rumoured as a product. They deal with the “little” ideas that are still in the conceptual stage. What’s more, while these ideas are in the technology preview stage they’re completely free.
All they ask is you provide feedback in return.
Since I started at Adris I’ve seen some pretty amazing previews arrive in the labs, all of which address very specific purposes and for me, that’s what the Labs do best – provide solutions to problems.
To give you an example of the kind of things they do I’ve listed four of their most popular and current previews below.
Project Memento is one of my personal favourites by the way.
I can guarantee you there’s something for everybody on the labs, but don't just take my word for it, try it out yourself.
