"Great company...we were in a bind due to late development changes. Clinkenbeard stepped in and turned out some complex castings in two weeks for a prototype build. Parts were true to spec and were production intent. Super performance that I've never forgotten..."

What is Optimized Training?
We are challenging traditional training methods with cost effective Mixed Immersive Reality tools optimized for the fastest user or learning – while rapidly enabling first time or slower users.Mixed Reality is combined with hands-on training to greatly improve overall interest, effectiveness and long-term retention.These learning tools eliminate frustration and are used as a ready reference readiness tools while users are performing best-of-class procedures and processes.Our futuristic blend of Mixed Reality and hi-fidelity physical training devices surpass both classroom and virtual training by providing portable learning tools that accompany maintainers and bring instant recall in deployed working environments.
Clinkenbeard is challenging traditional training methods with cost effective Mixed Immersive Reality learning tools optimized for the fastest user or learning – while rapidly enabling first time or slower users.
Smart devices (such as tablets and HoloLens) recognize target equipment and recall 3D modeling that provides easy and rapid navigation and understanding, through illustrated and video guided procedures. Used together with mockups, visual tools combine pictures, videos, animations and text. Users can read, hear, see, feel and experience learning content that is focused on comprehension, retention and drive to action to quickly and accurately perform and procedure for the first time.
Robust, high fidelity mechanical mockups provide maintenance personnel with optimized training experiences that mimic real world scenarios. Realistic “hands-on” mockups enable kinesthetic (muscle memory) training. These physical mockups are designed to be durable and cost effective at a fraction of real hardware expense, to sustain daily training activity while limiting resource expenditures, preserving safety and allowing access to serious but infrequent events. Duplicate training mockups can be rapidly produced at low cost to scale training capacity very quickly. Early and rapid physical prototypes in the hands of experienced maintenance personnel and engineers can also be used to spot design flaws and develop maintenance instructions, well before first deployment.
REAL LOOK + REAL FEEL = REAL LEARNING
Mixed Reality blends Augmented and Virtual Reality to provide realistic visual content. Through “digital storytelling,” critical processes are captured and shared in ways that grab attention and encourage replication. This content combines with realistic mockups to improve understanding, cognitive “stickiness” and confidence for users performing best-in-class procedures. Through these tools, top Subject Matter Experts (SME’s) share their knowledge and techniques in ways that “everyone gets it,” enabling replication of best and ideal practices.
