A centerpiece within the new 'Scotland's Time Lords' exhibition at 'Our Dynamic Earth’, a hanging 1.2m PufferSphere tells the geological story of Earth from the formation of the continents as we know them through to the cause of earthquakes and volcanoes.
An exhibition dedicated to the work of James Hutton (who is commonly viewed as the father of modern geology); Our Dynamic Earth sits at the foot of an extinct volcano which in 1785 was used as the basis of Hutton's research on rock formations which still stand true to this day.
A quite amazing exhibition, we would encourage anyone visiting Edinburgh to pay a visit.
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.
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.
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.
