Elon Musk Reveals ‘Iron Man’ Tech for Rocket Design

Elon Musk uses the LEAP Motion to rotate and create wire models of rocket parts in a CAD software. The intuitive interaction between the objects in 3D (Shutter, Oculus Rift, projection) makes the engineering and developing of physical objects easier and more intuitive for scientists, developers and engineers. Another great example

of how the LEAP can be used in 3D Space to create and develope physical objects.


SpaceX : SpaceX is exploring methods for engineers to accelerate their workflow by designing more directly in 3D. We are integrating breakthroughs in sensor and visualization technologies to view and modify designs more naturally and efficiently than we could using purely 2D tools. We are just beginning, but eventually hope to build the fastest route between the idea of a rocket and the reality of the factory floor. Special thanks to Leap Motion, Siemens and Oculus VR, as well as NVIDIA, Projection Design, Provision, and to everyone enabling and challenging the world to interact with technology in exciting new ways.
