Setup is easy and should take less than 5 minutes.
- The FrameGlide + Spin Browser (FG|SB) video explorer demonstrates itself live and interactively, with content ranging from a dove in flight to a point-of-view roller coaster ride. It also contains a 3 minute introductory video (with audio) showing TechnoFrolics' other creations such as Dancing Banners™ choreographed fabric.
- Remove the shipping case lock and open the shipping case. [We will email you the lock combination.]
- Read the directions on the laptop cover and inside surfaces showing the power-on/off button, volume control (relevant only to our 3 minute promo), etc.
- If the system will be left set up in an area where there is a security risk, please lock the case to a secure building component (a pipe for example) as described on the computer cover directions. (Otherwise, simply put the case lock in the black cloth pouch for safekeeping.)
- Take the standard black IEC 120VAC power cord from the black cloth pouch and plug it into a 120VAC grounded wall outlet and case power inlet.
- Press the laptop's power button and, once the computer has booted (about 1 minute), choose either the Standard-Def or High-Def sampler by double-clicking the appropriate desktop icon. To exit the application, type ESC.
These two main samplers have substantially distinct content (as briefly described on the desktop itself), each with their own strengths; we strongly encourage you to experience both. Because the High-Def sequence is relatively more content-specialized, and does not present TechnoFrolics' choreographed artworks in music-accompanied performance, we normally recommend returning to the main Standard-Def demo should the unit be left unattended for people to play with.
Newer demo units also include more content-specific samplers including:
- Singapore Science Center HD medley
- Art & Architecture (mostly from stills).
- Museum medical content.
- Dragonfly nanoscale zoom into wing, using scanning electron microscope.
- Bose ElectroForce Systems Group corporate trade show presentation/attraction.
- Grab the dial and take a spin! And once the system is up and running, please invite everyone over to explore and enjoy!
- If you have questions when setting up, packing up, or in between, do not hesitate to contact us. We also encourage you to check out our FG|SB PDF whitepaper, which includes installation photos and quotes from diverse clients attesting to our system's ruggedness, educational value, and fun!
