Nespresso Grand Central Popup
Client: Helios Interactive Technologies, Inc.
Completed: October 2013
Role: app implementation, 3d capsules and fluid simulation, custom multitouch input & multi-projector calibration systems
To launch their new line of espresso machines, Nespresso contracted Helios Interactive to build an interactive quiz to help participants discover their preferred flavor. We worked with Helios to develop a touchscreen application that faithfully reproduced the appearance Nespresso capsules and machine, and engineered the back-end flavor selection logic.
The app was featured as the main attraction in a popup boutique in Grand Central Station in New York City. It was presented on an 18 foot long glass multi-touch video wall designed and built by Obscura Digital. We collaborated with Helios' in-house developers to integrate Unity support for the wall's custom multi-touch system and multi-projector calibration setup.
