On 19 February, Dr. Janez Potočnik, European Commissioner for Science and Research, visited Wageningen University. Noldus Information Technology was one of the three companies selected by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs to present technical innovations and new products developed with support from EU projects.
Dr. Lucas Noldus, Managing Director of Noldus Information Technology, along with 40 entrepreneurs and representatives of educational institutions, and the Dutch Minister for Foreign Trade (Frank Heemskerk), journeyed to India as part of a trade mission to further the relationships of Dutch companies and their Indian counterparts.
The first time the interactive installation Eden was shown was a great success! At the heart of Eden was the Noldus FaceReader software. Eden was especially developed by Danielle Roberts for the International festival Image Radio 2008 (Eindhoven, The Netherlands). The festival theme was 'Explore your invisible paradise'. Due to the robustness of the FaceReader software the interaction was very easy and fluent. Visitors were queuing up to have a go!
