This year?s British Educational Training and Technology (BETT) Show has come up roses as 2017 kicked off. Held at the beginning month of the year, BETT 2017 provided us with a fresh hit of educational technology scenes. Having the opportunity to contribute as one of the exhibitors, Octagon Studio headed to London to rock ExCel London where BETT was being held on January 24 to 27, 2017. We came to London carrying our existing crackerjack products and upcoming lineups to be showcased and introduced. despite of having been an annual event since 1985 since 1985, it was Octagon Studio?s first attendance on the largest educational technology show in the British Aisle.
Introducing Octagon Studio?s Upcoming Humanoid 4D+
Nearly similar to other well-known technology shows and exhibitions, the show consisted of booths showcasing products from various companies. Some booths also provided the visitors with playful demonstration of their products. Aside from planning to showcase the existing product, Octagon Studio intended to give proper introduction to the latest product: Humanoid 4D+. It is therefore the reason why Octagon Studio?s booth was dominated by Humanoid 4D+ contents. Additionally, Humanoid also bears focal point about education and technology at the same time which was suitable with the theme of the show. As visitors stopped by our booth, positive reception were well received towards Humanoid 4D+.
Dinosaur 4D+ Took the Center Stage
AS we can probably guess, most of the visitors who came to the show are students and educators. Octagon Studio?s booth was flooded with students whose eagerness towards both Augmented Reality and dinosaurs could not be contained. They were enjoying ?petting? the Gigantosaurus who appeared as one of Octagon?s booth companion. They got into line to either play or take pictures with the extinct animal.
Tim Peak Showed Up
Quite notable in his own country, Tim Peak surprised whoever passed by our booth. A human-sized Augmented Reality marker of Tim Peak stood up straight at our booth. Not just standing and smiling, Tim came to life in form of Augmented Reality content and gave everyone two thumbs up. Tim Peak is an important figure in both education and technology sectors in the United Kingdom. It was undoubtedly a tremendous honor to feature Tim Peak as one of our lineups at such marvelous event.
Space 4D+, Animal 4D+, and Octaland 4D+ Received Warm Reception From Teachers and Parents
After having fun with Tim Peak, solar system enthusiasts then moved forward fulfilling their cravings to space related subject with Space 4D+. They were occupied popping up the planets, driving rovers, and launching space crafts in awe. Octagon Studio?s booth also got visited by parents who had prior experience with Animal 4D+ and Octaland 4D+. They stated that the products were helpful in introducing animals and occupations to young learners.
Apart from focusing on introducing ourselves, we also took fun stroll to other booths which were exhibiting sophisticated and advanced projects. In general, our first participation in BETT was really pleasant. We were absolutely inspired in making and continuing our projects passionately. Thank you BETT and see you next year!
