The Silicon Review
In 2007, Bruce Dell, a self-taught programmer, decided to revolutionize the way that data was handled in the gaming industry. By creating an ultra-efficient search algorithm - similar to the way Google instantly searches the vast amount of data on the internet – Bruce was able to fundamentally change the way 3D data was handled by computers, liberating the technology from the confines of high-end hardware requirements. In late 2009 Euclideon began its life as a gaming company and shot to fame when it released its now-famous ‘Unlimited Detail’ demonstration video onto YouTube.
However, the company soon realized its technology offered incredible benefits to the geospatial industry. In 2010, Euclideon received one of the largest government grants to commercialize Unlimited Detail with its first offering being the geospatial software package Geoverse.
Euclideon in the Media
Euclideon’s Unlimited Detail technology has been covered in some of the biggest publications in the world including New Scientist, Popular Scientist, Game Informer, and Rolling Stone magazines.
All this attention stemmed from a demonstration video posted to YouTube in 2011. The video demonstrated such a fundamental departure from what was currently thought possible, that many people called it out as a hoax. It wasn’t. The island demonstrated in the video measured 1-kilometre square, and had a resolution of 64 atoms per cubic millimeter – this was so fine that you could even make out individual grains of dirt. If this were to translate to traditional, polygon-based graphics, it would require the use of 21 trillion polygons, and would require the power of thousands of Xboxes to render – yet here it was running on a single laptop, so it’s understandable that people were skeptical.
The Future Forward
Euclideon’s Unlimited Detail technology has the potential to change the world – and that’s just the beginning.
Euclideon’s ultimate vision is to better the world for good by increasing global efficiency by one percent. Euclideon will achieve this by continuing to challenge the impossible and creating powerful technologies that increase production efficiencies – reducing global waste and giving people more time to do things they enjoy.
Euclideon’s visualization technologies are applicable to an infinite number of applications across countless industries, including education, training, medical, engineering, science, academia, and more. By aiding these industries, Euclideon really can change the world for the better.
Euclideon’s Top-Tier Products
VAULT: Euclideon Vault is a solution harnessing the power of Euclideon’s Patented Unlimited detail. It is scalable, secure, and adaptable enough to integrate with your existing solutions to solve most big data problems. Euclideon Vault is compatible with Euclideon Holographics, Euclideon Holoverse Rooms, Geoverse, and Holoverse Professional.
SOLIDSCAN: SOLIDSCAN solves many issues associated with laser scanning – removing holes, reflection noise, and moving objects – and creates a valuable offering to replace “Bubble” or panoramic images with photo-realistic, efficient 3D. SOLIDSCAN converts a laser scan into a solid, photo-realistic representation of the real world. Instead of naively ‘interpolating’ points, SOLIDSCAN uses a new 3D technique to produce solid point clouds with no holes. This is not “meshing” or photogrammetry – instead, Euclideon use 3D objects with a volume called “Atoms”.
There is no upper limit to the detail that can be reproduced using SOLIDSCAN. A 3 Terabyte SOLIDSCAN file can open and stream at the same speed as a 3 Megabyte one. Incredibly, SOLIDSCAN also removes moving objects and noise from laser scanned data. Only static objects remain. Reflective surfaces like whiteboards and mirrors can be scanned.
Geoverse Massive Data Manager: Geoverse Massive Data Manager is based on Euclideon’s revolutionary Unlimited Detail (UD) Technology. This technology is able to handle the vast amounts of LiDAR data – up to and beyond two million points per second – in a way previously unimaginable on normal computers.
Geoverse Massive Data Manager frees the spatial industry from the need for dedicated 3D cards or powerful CPUs to display – no matter what the size or detail of the dataset. Even more than that, Geoverse Massive Data Manager allows professionals to stream their data from a networked server instantly.
Geoverse Convert: Geoverse Convert solves all these problems, by compressing data down to 5-20% of its original size – without degrading quality – and enabling it to be viewed in the Geoverse MDM package in less than a second – no matter how large the data is, or if it’s coming from a hard drive, flash drive, local server, or the internet.
Staying Ahead Of the Game
Euclideon’s developers are pioneers, relentlessly pursuing new ways of doing things.
Problems are real opportunities, and by rethinking what is possible, Euclideon consistently creates new and efficient methods of solving common problems across industries – whether it’s pioneering a method to stream 3D point clouds over local networks and the internet, removing limits on how much detail 3D models can contain, or abolish loading times of large datasets, Euclideon never takes ‘impossible’ as an answer.
This pioneering spirit and an unending desire to always be ‘first’ is apparent in more than Euclideon’s technologies, however, as the team’s flawless customer service and unparalleled user experiences are in a league of their own.
The Man behind the Picture
Bruce Dell, CEO: Bruce Robert Dell is both the primary creator of Euclideon’s technologies, as well as the coordinator of development and the business in general. His work has appeared in both Popular Science and New Scientist magazines. As a self-taught programmer that never attended university, he often finds different solutions to problems than those considered the ‘industry standard.’ Thinking outside of the box comes naturally to him.
