What is Autodesk Labs?
Autodesk Labs is home to innovative new technologies and collaborative development. Its mission is to involve the customer, in the progress of design technology solutions. They are not a beta program, or a usability team, because the technology that they work with is too new to be a product. The user feedback that you provide to Labs is really on product ideas, while they’re still in an early conceptual stage.
They explore and develop technology that is commercially relevant to customers in design – no matter what industry you work on.
The best way to learn about Autodesk Labs is to start experimenting yourself. Check out the different technologies available on Autodesk Labs, participate in the discussion groups and blogs, and be sure to register to receive email updates when new technologies are posted. Try out their free technology previews, test them and tell them what you think. Your comments, experience and insight help drive the future of Autodesk innovation.
So go, get register and start making the different...
