Expo Milan 2015 Experience
Riolab created a multitouch installation that integrates electronics, physics, computing and communications, at the service of a multiuser artistic design unique in its kind.
We were in charge of developing the experience of the Chilean Pavilion by integrating audiovisual, technological and scenography devices in a tour around three installations that brought together a unique narration between physical and mobile supports.
One of them was the Information Cube, an intuitive device formed by 14 55” Multitaction© screens that allowed the visitors to connect with the content and make a dynamic narration in a tour through the fruits of Chile, their preparations and the places in the world that acquire them.
The innovation is mainly in two of their components: one in which the user interacts with more than one thousand 3D objects in real time and another in which the Cube allows the user to download graphic and audiovisual content in their mobile phones, through drag and show gesture.
By touching one of the 3D fruits, the visitor activates a menu that displays five modules that allow getting phytosanitary, geographic area, health, industry and other kinds of information.
An interface that takes the visitor to the loT displays a typical Chilean recipe that the visitor can prepare with gestures: cut, whip, bake and that he/she can then enjoy at the pavilion’s restaurant.
The experience also incorporates an interactive game in which the visitor has the mission to send a fruit to its destination. For that, we developed a dynamic browsing system that has visual indications regarding the address and distance the fruit has to travel to reach its final destination. The visitors guide the object movement and once the mission is finished, the system indicates them they have to deliver it and congratulates them for a successful task.
Another technological challenge is the Cube interaction with smartphones (iOS and Android), integrating Beacons, multitouch and a proprietary application -L’Amore del Cile-, from which the visitor can take with him photographs, recipes, songs and videos sent from the Cube interface to their mobile phones.
