EXCLUSIVE VIDEOS: HP Sprout helped sprout Nixi Killick’s fashion collection


Top Aussie designer, Nixi Killick (who counts Lady Gaga among her clients) put on a stunning fashion show with all pieces designed with the help of HP’s 3D scanning computer system, HP Sprout.

Melbourne Fashion Week was on earlier this month, with HP playing a starring role in Australian fashion designer Nixi Killick’s latest colourful collection.

Designed with the digital assistance of HP’s fully integrated desktop 3D scanning solution, the HP Sprout, iTWire was there not only to exclusively capture the unveiling of the fashion collection in full on video, but also to exclusively capture, on video, the Q&A session Nixi did with journalists after the event.

But first, what the heck is HP Sprout, for those that are unaware?

Launched in Australia last September, HP Sprout is an all-in-one computer and 3D scanning solution that provides you a ‘simple, quick and affordable way to create 3D content.’

Using Intel’s Real Sense 3D cameras and HP’s proprietary 3D Capture Stage and ‘unique 3D capture software’, along with ‘several new applications also available to enhance the user experience and expand the 3D Ecosystem for creative professionals and aspiring creatives,’ HP is calling it its ‘blended reality ecosystem’.

Indeed, HP says Sprout is a ‘first-of-its-kind Immersive Computing platform that redefines the user experience and creates a foundation for future immersive technologies. Part of HP's Blended Reality ecosystem and vision for the future of computing, Sprout by HP is designed to break down the barriers between the digital and physical worlds.’

Pair it up with a 3D printer, whether on your desktop or via a commercial service, and you have a complete system to design and create as never before.

At Sprout’s launch last year, Paul Gracey, HP South Pacific’s direct of Printing and Personal Systems said: “Sprout is the first release of HP’s Blended Reality strategy and is the first step on our mission to deliver truly immersive experiences.

"The innovative and unique 3D Capture solution allows users to easily capture an object in 3D that can then be further modified, shared, and printed."

So, with HP having launched Sprout last year, and with plenty of interesting videos at its website and a newsletter to sign up to with all kinds of Sprout related information, it is fascinating to see how Sprout planted a seed in the mind of Nixi Killick, who made it grow into a colourful fashion collection likely unlike any you’ve ever seen before, as you’ll soon see blow.

Nixi recently designed her entire product line on the Sprout, which she unveiled at the HP Experience Centre, then elsewhere at Melbourne Fashion Week and then in Berlin - and no doubt elsewhere around the world.

Nixi’s show demonstrated how the Sprout has been enabling designers to break down boundaries and push the limits of their work, which HP boasting that Sprout has ‘introduced a new level of virtual reality application breaking down the walls between the physical and digital worlds and effortlessly merging objects and images for progressive design.’

After the show, Nixi participated in a media Q&A, which is embedded below the fashion shoot.

So - sit back and relax, and take a peek at imagination come to life, and the mind that made it happen!
