SimSpray is a training appliance created to improve traditional spray coating skills training. Designed to simulate the painting process, the student selects a work piece, paint color, and air pressure settings on the touch screen monitor. The user dons a custom helmet that shows a three dimensional virtual rendering of the work piece in an augmented reality environment. With a modified high-volume/low-pressure (HVLP) spray gun in hand, the user can adjust the spray pattern, trigger the gun, and begin to apply the first coat of virtual paint.
