With visual demonstrations key to understanding the scope of the technology involved in Vizitech USA’s learning program, the company will be taking their show on the road.

Rolling out April 1 in new buses designed with their logo and contact information displayed artistically on the sides, Vizitech representatives will travel across the United States honoring requests from school system officials interested in finding ways to upgrade their technology for a more hands-on approach in classrooms.

“We will be going from Florida to Texas to Colorado and back across to Washington, D.C.,” Vizitech President Stewart Rodeheaver said, noting they will introduce their technology to schools and businesses across America with a focus on helping improve education and training.

The buses will be stocked with samples of Vizitech’s virtual reality machine, augmented reality display, 3D printers and portable 3D theater, which also can be used to enhance learning at summer technology camps.

The East Sumter Street business, which opened in Eatonton in January 2014, now services over 1,000 school systems as well as corporations such as Georgia Power and Lockheed Martin.

 


Commissioners approve Legacy tiny houses for Oconee Springs Park

Four tiny houses from Putnam County’s Legacy Housing’s tiny house industry, similar to the one above, will be replacing the four Oconee Springs Park cabins lost recently to a tornado.

 

Oconee Springs Park, which has been a long-time venue for weddings and other celebrations, will soon resemble its former character as facilities lost after a Jan. 21 storm are replaced. Commissioners agreed unanimously March 3 to make the purchases including an agreement to buy four tiny houses from Legacy Housing to replace the four cabins lost when a tornado totaled two and rolled two into the lake.

 

This one-bedroom Legacy tiny house is decorated to the nines showing how to turn a cabin into a home. Putnam County’s Oconee Springs Park will soon have four of the popular little haciendas to replace the four cabins lost in a January storm.
