DI-Guy is Now Part of VT MAK

Well-known human simulation software, DI-Guy, to augment MAK product line

Cambridge, Mass., 10 January, 2014 – VT MAK (MAK), a company of Vision Technologies Systems, Inc. (VT Systems), today announced that the DI-Guy product line, specializing in human simulation software, is now part of MAK’s suite of Modeling & Simulation software.

DI-Guy and MAK share the same core values: flexible software toolkits, value-added applications built on those toolkits, and an engineer-down-the-hall support philosophy. MAK will maintain, support, and enhance the DI-Guy product line while retaining the DI-Guy brand name. This change allows Boston Dynamics, the original developers of DI-Guy, to focus on their growing robotics business, while MAK continues to expand their commercial off-the-shelf software product offering.

DI-Guy staff has joined the MAK team to expand upon their success over the last 17 years. MAK is committed to supporting users of DI-Guy regardless of what products they use. In particular, MAK will continue to support DI-Guy integrations into image generators whether they are based on MAK products or not. MAK has a long history of building simulation tools that are designed to form an integrated system or used separately in other simulation architectures.

“We are excited about the possibilities of our extended product line and look forward to better leveraging DI-Guy technology across the MAK product line.”
~Dan SCHIMMEL,
CEO, VT MAK
