Mars Pathfinder

Mars Pathfinder finally made to the Red Planet. Sojourner has been deployed and exploring the Martian surface. We at Engineered Multimedia Inc. feel honored to be part of history by producing the landing animations for NASA and JPL. We've also created a whole section for the Mars Pathfinder mission on our web site.

QuickTime demos

After constructing and animating the models in our animations, it seems like such a waste to just not be able to use them again. So we made it possible for the user to rotate these models in real-time and view it from different angles using QuickTime VR (QTVR). We currently have 2 QTVR objects; the Sojourner rover (1M QTVR) and the Cruise stage (1M QTVR) from the Mars Pathfinder mission.
(note: The QuickTime plug-in is required in order to play the QTVR in your browser.)

Shockwave demos

With a team of engineers on staff, Engineered Multimedia is well placed to create engineering tools that are faster, easier to use and understand than conventional methods. These tools can be as simple as a visual vector calculator or as complex as a truss builder that determines element stresses and displacements and checks for buckling of members.
(note: These demos require the Shockwave plug-in.)


Below are more samples of the work we have created. Enjoy!
(note: The animations require the QuickTime plug-in.)
