Current Projects

PostLogistics Event

Augmented Reality scavenger hunt on six future topics

For this event, the management team of Swiss parcel distributor PostLogistics was given the task to deliver parcels and meanwhile to deal with its own future. An interactive storytelling app links the locations and ensures vivid interaction within the groups. Each group receives a parcel and takes a look inside it by using the AR app without opening it. Playfully implemented animations teaser the far future of each topic and thus the next workshop topic. Gamification elements animate the groups to answer the quiz questions correctly and thus obtain the next hints, which are distributed throughout the whole area. Developed in collaboration with Fabritastika.

UPC VR Armchair

Virtual reality experience in the sky high above Zurich

Have a seat and take off: Following the motto "Off to Entertainment Heaven", the virtual reality experience for UPC at the Zurich Film Festival starts comfortably in a virtual living room and then boosts you through the roof into sky. Thanks to the full-motion armchair, you literally lose your grip on the ground. Using a remote control, the user steers high above the clouds to huge, floating TV screens and tries to memorize blockbuster videos. But high level of concentration is needed, because the breathtaking view over the Alps and the greater Zurich area is tempting. In addition, air planes or a dragon rushing by try to distract the viewer with audio-visual signals. Developed in close cooperation with JEFF.

MINI AR Race Game

Fast-paced augmented reality game for four simultaneous players

For famous British carmaker MINI, we developed one of the world's first augmented reality games with multiplayer functionality for up to four players. The game principle is quite simple: Choose one of four virtual MINI vehicles and start playing on the real table in Union Jack look. Whoever holds the MINI symbol for 10 seconds wins a point. If you are touched by others, you lose it. The game focuses is on fun while driving combined with innovative technology, just like MINI. Installed at Man's World Exhibition and Forward Festival.

ewz-on

Immersive Storytelling-Game

ewz-on allows users to interactively experience the history of the electrification of the city of Zurich. The app immerses users in the most important six epochs, each with its own game, infotainment section and challenging competition. On a interactive journey, the players illuminate the first roads back in 1892, build dams in the Graubünden area, deal with the solar production of the future and, as a highlight, turn off the entire festive lighting of the city of Zurich via the app. Awarded 2 x Gold at the Best of Swiss Apps Awards. Developed in close cooperation with JEFF.

Zürcher Kantonalbank

3D-Mapviewer to illustrate the distribution of profits to the municipalities of the Canton of Zurich

The installation "Profit Distribution 2017" shows in an appealing way how the citizens of the Canton of Zurich benefit directly and indirectly from the profits of the Kantonalbank. The infotainment cube "Communities" lets the users fly all over the communities in a bird's eye view and thus creates a subtle personal reference to their own community and the amount distributed there. Developed in collaboration with JEFF.

MAP BASED APP | EVENT INSTALLATION

smart Illuminarium

A dreamy interactive story on a giant screen

In winter 2017, Illuminarium, a wonderful winter light festival, shined for the first time in the inner courtyard of Landesmuseum (National Museum) in Zurich for 45 days. The main theme was innovation and interaction in lighting. For presenting partner smart, we have created an imaginative, interactive story on a huge 350m2 screen in the inner courtyard. The highlight: Sitting in a real smart fortwo, one could subtly interact within the winter fantasy world by steering one of the balloons on the wall by using the accelerator pedal and steering wheel as a controller. Developed in cooperation with Projektil, Miteinander and JEFF.

We are a "bunch of geeks" and combine years of experience in marketing, networking, programming, app development, game mechanics and design. We rely on agile project management and full transparency during the development process. For the best solution, we enjoy breaking new ground and prefer to be at the edge of what's technically possible. We also develop our own software systems for this purpose. We focus on high quality, intuitive user guidance and visual aesthetics.
