ProtoSphere 1.4 Feature Peek: Dynamic billboard

One of our objectives with our blog is to leverage it as a way to provide our readers with insight into what our developers are working on in their "bat cave," and what might be coming down the pike. We're calling these insights "feature peeks." We'll be rolling out short videos that show you each feature peek as we develop them.

As a word of caution, I want to let you know we can't guarantee that everything we show you will make it into the next version of ProtoSphere, the version after that, or even at all. However, if something you see really blows you away, tell us in the comments. And likewise, if you think something is not so great or important, let us know too. We always strive to create our platform with our end users in mind, and if we're not meeting your needs, then we need to know!

So, without further ado, here is our first feature peek, Dynamic billboard. It's currently slated for the ProtoSphere 1.4 release. Dynamic billboards let you place text or image-based content onto whiteboards in your ProtoSphere environment. You can also drag and drop images from your desktop to the whiteboards.

This allows for persistence of that information. The content is always there until you take it down or swap it out for something else. It also lets you customize your environment on the fly.

We're working on developing support for many more file types, including Microsoft Office documents, .pdf's, other image formats like .jpeg, and video. This also opens the window for users to do remote desktop sharing, right in their 3-D space.
