Experience n°6
Robotic balls trail

The discovery of Spheros® robotic balls from a table surrounded by three Microsoft Surface tablets. At each session, players can take control of one ball, identifiable by their individual color. The interfaces are intuitive and adopt the respective point of view of each participant and the balls alternately switch between sessions to maintain their batteries loads.

This experience is replaced after five months of commissioning. Unfortunately the handling was not suitable for the context of continuous operation, losing the autonomy of the experience. A new activity has been completely redesigned for this space!

Experience n°6 - Created jan. 2016
Virtual arena in augmented reality

An interactive game allowing the participants to drive to the choice: a car, a drone or a robotic ball. Each of the vehicles have different characteristics in a futuristic universe. An other originality about this table is its ability to detect in real time any object placed on its surface and transform it into an obstacle, thus allowing an infinite freedom in the design of circuits and putting everyone to contribution!

The game is known for its playfulness and gives a smile to everyone who has known the famous game "Micro Machines" :)

Staff Tool
Webservice / Experiences Management System

A successful experience is not only when it's easy for visitors, it's also when the experience is intuitive for our customers! To this end, we have configured and created an interfaced network solution to interact directly with all the experiences. Thus, allowing the park's teams to stay close to the public while performing simple acts of support (identification of network incidents, restarts and so on).

Not launched
Mobile experience

Orange Beacons® were installed on each experience of the exhibition in order to be used with a potential mobile application! Thus, a quiz and additional playful experiences could be offered to the public along the pathway.

Field validation required additional controls and potentially the replacement of the beacons by a wired solution for greater powers stability (the field tests showed great differences between two periods of tests at regular intervals, which would not have allowed a convincing continuous experiment). The project has been unfortunately not continued, but remain no less interesting. We wanted to make you discover it :)
