TACRoad to Zero

Road to Zero

The TAC Road to Zero interactive experience is a permanent installation located at Melbourne Museum. It draws upon decades of TAC research and pedagogical practice, and is co-created with practicing teachers. Part of the Victorian Government’s Towards Zero vision, it aims to reduce road trauma in pre-learner drivers by building knowledge and awareness that will empower young road users to make safe decisions. The experience comprises of 10 individual touch points, each highlighting different aspects of road safer. From a technical point of view the experience utilizes a rang of cutting edge and well establishment hardware and software components, these include Oculus VR, Touch Screens, Projection Mapping, Face Mapping, Rotary Encoders and WebGL. Safer Systems A multi scenario, 16 screen array of touch screens and 4K screens for users to interact and make the roads safer. The aim is to improve the road rating system on 4 different scenarios. Each landscape consists of 3D animated road environments and crash scenarios for users to make decisions about road safety. As the user approaches the experience they are presented with four different road environments (City CBA, Outer Suburban, Rural, Suburban). Each environment is displayed on two screens, a touch screen laying at a 10 degree angle which displays a top down orthographic animated view of the road system and a wall mounted screen displaying a backdrop of the environment. Once the user picks an environment they are prompted to activate the experience by tapping their ZeroCard (NFC Card) on the embedded NFC reader. Upon tapping their card the user will be presented with onscreen instructions introducing the experience and informing them...
CBA Business Bar Solutions

Business Bar Solutions

CBA – Business Bar Solutions CBA Business Bar Solutions is a Multitaction touch table activation which allows users to interrogate areas of innovation within the financial industry, explore relevant case-studies and related products. We also created a secondary display application which displays related content on the projection screens behind the table. Additionally thanks to the cross platform nature of Haxe (programming language) we were also able to port the experiance to a tablet application from the same codebase, allowing hosts to take the experience on the road.   Technology We utilized a number of technology to deliver this project. The frontend desktop/multitaction app, background projection app and tablet application were all built with the Haxe programming language. OpenFL, Starling and Robotlegs were the core libraries used to develop these apps. The touch table is a Multitaction, while far from perfect, it’s more or less the only option currently.   Role & Responsibility Technical Direction Frontend Application Development Installation Core Code Library Software Development Credits Charles Tait – Project Lead / Producer Marion Baillat – Product Manager Michal Moczynski – App Development Tom Byrne – CMS / App Development Markus Strazds – CMS Development John Tantoco – Digital Designer Pete Shand – App Development & Technical...


Telstra Vantage™   I’ve been involved in the delivery of Vantage for the past four years. It is a huge Telstra B2B event that is held at Melbourne convention centre each year in September. There is a massive amount of work that goes into delivering an event to this scale, but my primary focus has been on: The Digital Canopy. The physical build on this has changed from year to year, but essentially it’s a few massive LED screens that hang in the middle of the event about 6 meters above the floor. They display many different types of content, including event schedule information, videos, photo feeds, social media, weather information, news updates. This is all played through a bespoke digital signage application I first began to develop back in 2014. Theater Screens: These are placed outside each theater and display the upcoming sessions and speaker details and is built on the same system as the Canopy. InfoHubs / Wayfinding: Pretty self explanatory really, these are touch screens which allow users to view an indoor map of the event and search for exhibitors. Telstra Ventures: 2017 saw the introduction of this Kinect and iPad interactive which enabled participants to enter their contact details into an iPad application and then answer a series of questions via a Microsoft Kinect and then have relevant information emailed to...
LendleaseBarangaroo Office

Barangaroo Office

Lendlease – Barangaroo Office In 2016 Lendlease moved into their new HQ in Barangaroo, with this new location they wanted to create a contemporary and dynamic space for their employees and clients. To realize this we created 3 distinct creative concepts across 10 floors and over 50 screens. A stunning lobby installation the showcases Lendlease’s values, visions and placemaking expertise. An interactive timeline that displays Lendlease’s history and achievements. An internal communications platform with real time data for their employees. We then developed a bespoke digital signage platform to manage and update all of the content. Instead of going out to 3rd parties to create bespoke videos and animations every time they want to update their content they can now just log in, update the content inline, have a visual representation of what it’s going to look like, hit publish and all the displays are updated in a matter of seconds. Technology From a technical perspective the majority of the project was created with the haxe programming language, along with OpenFL, Away3d and Starling. This allows us to compile to a number of desktop and mobile platforms, in this case Windows and iOS. Additionally it also allows us to compile down to javascript and run the same codebase within a browser, this is how we’re able to have a “what you see is what you get” editor within the CMS, which is incredibly useful and allows the user to preview their content before they publish on all the...
CBAInnovation Lab

Innovation Lab

CBA – Innovation Lab In 2014 we built CBA’s first space entirely dedicated to innovation, dubbed The CBA Innovation Lab. Key touch points include: Guided Tour: A tablet application equipped with beacon technology that guides users through the space. Products of Innovation: A Leap Motion controlled interactive that allows users to explore CBA’s product offering. Big Data: A Tablet and Desktop application that communicate over a peer to peer network and allow the user to explore CBA transactional dataset. Cryptocurrency: A touch screen interactive aimed at internal education on the subject matter of Cryptocurrency. Day in the life: A VR (Oculus DK1) game where users are taken on a journey that explores a day in the life of an average CBA customer and what CBA products help them navigate certain situations.
