It is a highly innovative and technologically advanced system which allows teachers and students to interact with real-time 3D graphics within a virtual environment, enhancing the impact and effectiveness of educational tools.
Edison is the result of applying to Education the more than 20 years of experience Brainstorm enjoys in the development of Virtual Studios and Real-Time 3D Graphics applications, used daily by broadcasters all over the world.

How Edison works
Open an EdISON template
Select a scene or background
Add presentations and assets
Give the lesson
Easy to use
Easy to install
To install, set up and operate Edison is simple and straightforward. All that is required it’s a laptop with a camera such as Intel® RealSense™. Teachers can also use a green or blue screen and a standard camera to achieve more professional results using Edison’s internal chroma keyer. The output can be displayed using a projector, a large screen or even an interactive whiteboard, which can also be used to drive Edison’s templates.
Brainstorm’s Edison is based on editable templates, which can be further customized using the assets available online. These assets can be scenes to customize the background, furniture such as desks and displays or different templates for displaying the slides required for the lesson. Additionally, other assets in the form of animatable 3D objects can be used to enhance the lesson.
Edison supports interactive gesture management triggering actions via the automatic identification of the gestures (bare hand movements) and interacting with the augmented reality objects in the virtual environment. Gestures turn object interaction and event triggering a straight-forward task, so teachers can follow a natural behaviour while in class.
Augmented Reality made simple
Teachers can easily explain concepts that typically have been difficult to understand by students, in a simple, visual and practical manner, while attracting the student’s full attention. Brainstorm Edison provides state-of-the-art real-time 3D graphics with real-time Augmented Reality object interaction, remote placement of speakers or animated data-driven graphics.

The above table of recommendations showcases standard certified configurations for Brainstorm products. While customers may attempt to use their own workstations for operating Brainstorm’s software, as we are flexible as far as hardware is concerned, it is advisable that our quality department certifies them first. Failure to follow this procedure may result in the software not working properly. Brainstorm does not take responsibility for system failures caused by the usage of uncertified workstations.
