  1. Celebrating the life and works of the iconic Dutch artist M.C. Escher, the ‘Escher in het Paleis’ museum in The Hague is a treasure trove of drawings, carvings and interactive experiences all focused around the often mathematical inspired impossible structures and scenes which Eshcer is famous for.

    Consistent with the theme, an interactive PufferSphere M display adds a new perspective to the museum, allowing visitors to explore a hidden world of floating islands through wiping away Escher inspired wormholes on the surface of the sphere.

    A real pleasure to be able to contribute to the museum of such an iconic and renowned artist, Pufferfish were delighted that our display was deemed worthy of being a centerpiece amongst an array of mind bending, design and art.

  2. Bringing together a group of enthusiastic scientists and experts in the field of space, the fourth Living Planet Symposium was held in Edinburgh in September and Pufferfish were thrilled to be able to contribute two of our ‘out of this world’ spherical displays to the event.

    Organised by the European Space Agency, in conjunction with the UK Space Agency, it is the first time the event has been held in the UK and saw more than 1500 scientists gather to present their latest findings and data gathered from the Earth Explorer Missions.

    Teaming up with data gathering and processing experts Global Surface Intelligence, we used an interactive PufferSphere M600 to display their data in an intuitive touch globe format. Using newly developed gesture control built into our on-sphere touch, users were invited to switch between three different modes of video, animation and an interactive data set which geographically illustrated the amount of carbon stored by vegetation on our planet.

    Not content with one video ball at the conference, we also had a PufferSphere M600 display on the UK Space Agency stand which brought new life to global data sets supplied by both the Met Office and NOC to and helped highlight the geographical spread and movement of their data.

    A fascinating event to be involved with, we would like to thank the teams at Global Surface Intelligence and the UK Space Agency for having us along.

  3. Used as an interactive brand ambassador for their 'Business Customer Forum' events, telecoms giant EE used a multi-touch PufferSphere M display to educate their corporate customers at events in both London and Leeds.

    A multi-buttons application, six standard format marketing videos were loaded into an animated reel which wrapped around the sphere. Visitors were then invited to rotate the carousel and select one of the videos to learn more about what 4GEE could do for their business.

    Building custom enclosures for the events, the team at Pufferfish worked closely with event and brand experts Communique Live to ensure that the display was transformed into an interactive portal fit for its setting.

  4. For the past 11 years, a team of lighting designers and technical experts have been transforming a small forest on the outskirts of Pitlochry into what has been voted Scotland’s best cultural event. Known as ‘The Enchanted Forest’, we are delighted to say that we played a part in wowing over 40,000 visitors throughout the three week run of the renowned 2013 light show.

    Working once again with the team from NL Productions and DM Audio, as well as the award winning designers of The Enchanted Forest, we were excited to plan and design the involvement of two interactive PufferSphere M600 displays at the popular outdoor light and sound experience.

    Using the displays as interactive control points, a user’s touch on the sphere triggered one of six light and audio sources surrounding each display. Dragging a finger vertically on the sphere altered the colour of the lights illuminating trees within the forest, corresponding to the multi-coloured pallete displayed on the PufferSphere whilst also influencing the audio track being played.

    A challenging programming task on its own, the task was made more complex when we factored in that the equipment would need to remain exposed in a forest for three weeks, whilst unprotected to the often harsh conditions of a Scottish Autumn. The weather proved no match to our clever all weather engineering and set design though, with the displays operating perfectly for the whole month.

    Not content with simply having two interactive spheres at the party, our clever head of content, Tim, put his skills to use by both animating and then projection mapping a story on to a contoured hillside.

    An outstanding job by everyone involved, Faskally Woods were once again transformed into a dramatic and emotion evoking scene for the month of October. A resounding success, we would like to thank the team at NL Productions, DM Audio and Enchanted Forest for both inviting us to be a part of the project and their help in making the debut of the PufferSpheres a success.

  5. Synonymous with ultra-reliable engineering excellence, Babcock have been at the forefront of precise engineering support services for over a century. When they were looking for an effective display to showcase their presence at an upcoming trade show they chose to use a PufferSphere to translate their tagline ‘Trusted to Deliver’ into a tangible outlet.

    Displaying at the world’s leading defence and security show, DSEI, Babcock were looking to make an impression and engage with as many of the 32,000 visitors from 121 countries as possible. A huge opportunity to build on existing relationships and win new business, they chose to use an interactive PufferSphere M600 display to set themselves apart from their competition and stop the flow of traffic past their stand.

    A concept pitched and delivered by the team at Real Creative Marketing, the in-house software programming team from Pufferfish worked closely with both Babcock and Real Creative Marketing to build and deliver our most complex multi-layered application to date.

    Offering two modes, video and presentation, the sphere could be changed from branded video messages to interactive globe at the touch of a button. This allowed the sales team manning the stand to leave the display to do what it does best, attract gazes from across the aisle and draw inquisitive visitors on to the stand.

    Once on the stand, the sphere was able to be changed from ‘attractor mode’ into an interactive globe. Covered with pre-determined touch points, the globe temporarily became part of the sales team, allowing staff on the booth to start conversations, talk visitors through their operations, scope and previous work through videos, animations and interactive elements placed at each hot-spot.

    The display proved to be a great success for the show and was used to entertain and inform foreign ministers and dignitaries from around the world as well as initiate and facilitate valuable conversations with potential new clients.

    A huge thank you goes to Roger from Real Creative Marketing for coordinating both the use of the display and also the design of the application used, it was a pleasure working with him and the team at Babcock.
