Follow this link to experience the Additive Manufacturing Kiosk in a virtual environment: amkiosk.comcastmediatechcenter.org.
The kiosk our team designed is a multisensory experience to learn more about additive manufacturing and how its application is enabling a better future. This virtual and physical kiosk includes additively manufactured screen mounts that demonstrate topology optimization; interactive touch screens; a series of display objects on that provide a tactile and fun experience; augmented reality experience through a custom app that brings the user to the surface of Mars, and a set of souvenir cards with a space-themed augmented reality hologram.

This project began with an in-depth exploration of what makes an engaging experience learning about and experiencing the capabilities of additive manufacturing. We conducted research on different methods for additive manufacturing and got inspiration from different kinds of kiosks around the world.
The design of the CMTC’s additive manufacturing kiosk is based on the narrative that the user can experience:
The main goals of this project were refined to include:
Created several series of innovative prototypes using sketches, storyboards, 3D renders, full-scale and scaled prototypes, and multiple iterations of hardware and software configurations.
The CMTC’s kiosk is comprised of the following modules:
The final kiosk can be experienced in a virtual environment at amkiosk.comcastmediatechcenter.org! For the best experience, download our companion app on the iOS App Store and Google Play stores:
