pixelmolkerei's Interactive Showcase


Great feedback for our VR professional education showcase at EFORT

High end Visualization meets serious gaming.

What a great feeling! Our customer presented three of our VR Products at the EFFORT*. One for Primary Total Knee System, Direct Anterior Approach Hip Replacement and a Tibial Nail coated with high concentrations of antibiotics into the implant’s surroundings to protect patients from bacterial colonization of the implant.

All kinds of international healthcare professionals were curious and not too shy to show their interest and excitement. They gave us great comments, such as: “There is no such quality yet at congresses.” “What product comes next?” “Where can we train?“ and ”Wow, that is really realistic!”

The positive feedback of the surgeons was super encouraging and the hard work we preinvested in our product paid off. We were incredibly pleased to watch them educate and train themselves in this fun way.

AVIA gave us a big thumbs up for our character design of their new bird. We created several dynamic poses with this mascot and we had a lot of fun with this red fluffy cutie. They will be on display throughout the year for several different occasions.

Our passion to create your vision...

Knowledge. Our deep understanding of the medical field workflow allows us to handle your projects with ease, efficiency, and precision.

Unique Design. Our creative staff can incorporate their sleek art style into your corporate design to achieve a truly unique look.

Your Product Alive
Virtual Reality

Opportunity. There has never been a better time to invest in Virtual Reality. Stand out by adding these powerful tools to your selection of products. We support all available off-the-shelf VR & AR devices, such as HTC Vive, Oculus, HoloLens, Samsung and more.

Your Product In Space
Augmented Reality

Enhanced Support. Closer to real-life training, Augmented Reality enhances learning experiences, adds to your presentation, and makes for a fantastic visualization tool in the real world.

Evolving Market: Our pixelmolkerei tech nerds are constantly trying out new AR devices and building new prototypes. Every generation delivers greater possibilities, and it is our responsibility to keep up with those changes. Starting from the first HoloLens, we are ready to support any released AR device that money can buy.

Hands On
Mixed Reality Simulators

Hands on. Combining both VR and AR for the best immersion, Mixed Reality makes sense when there is a great need to recreate haptic feedback. We have already built several medical Mixed Reality simulators, where you can operate directly on a model and see what happens on screen. It is perfect for hands-on training and our customers expect a significant cost reduction for wet or porcine labs.

Perfect pitch. Mixed reality is the best way to experience the real thing without having to deal with high effort and costs involved.
