VolvoxLabs, in partnership with Bing, set out to build a unique community lounge and event space for Digital DUMBO that merged architectural design and aesthetically integrating audiovisual elements with functionality. VVOX created a fully integrated, personalized visual system built from the ground up that included a projection mapped bar, user-based interactive LED wall, and a realtime social media interface that pulls in Twitter and Instagram feeds. This whole system is situated within a functional and modular interior design environment.
The space itself features:
- A groundbreaking audiovisual system that seamlessly merges with the architectural design
- 200″ projection screen that allows for engaging presentations and visual content as well as a direct connection between Windows 8, Xbox and Airstream operating systems.
- A custom made touchscreen interface that allows clients to control lighting, AV content and Instagram + Twitter feeds in realtime
- Integrated technologies allow for the content to be presented simultaneously across all screens
- 70 high-powered LED strips react to human presence, triggering patterns and surround sound effects using the Kinect sensors
- Projection mapped Bar Pod creates a unique surface for showcasing design work, motion graphics, and the “back channel”.
Our software allows visitors to upload their content to a folder in the cloud which then is automatically wrapped around the Pod making it very easy and simple to switch ‘vibe’ and branding between events.
