Bticino, a company specialising in lightswitches, organised a salesevent to promote their brand new products. To give the meeting a little bit of a 'fun factor' they wanted to invite their guests to play some games and win some prizes. We developed 2 games: a 'memory game' with pictures of Bticino products and a 'simon says'-game. That last one is a game where players saw pictures of 4 lightswitches wich lit up in a random order, each time adding one. The order in wich these 4 switches lit up on the screen had to be recreated on actual switches build in next to the screen. The challenge here was that we had to make 4 ordinary lightswitches give computersignal to our game. For this we used an arduino-board, that we adapted to our needs. Players could keep track of their personal scores because they could scan their personal QR-code before playing the game. All the games were linked in a netwerk and a central server kept track of al the individual scores and showed the top ten high scores.
Four the games we delivered the 4 touchscreens, including 4 computers to run the games and a server to keep track of the scores. For the VJ we installed 2 LCD screens, linked together, on wich he could display his show. On some locations there were more screens available so using videoswitchers we went up to 8 screens and a projection wall for the VJ his show. In the booth Bticino also wanted to some some productvideo's so we brought 4 videoplayers and 4 monitors.
The event being a roadshow ment installation on 4 different locations (Anderlecht, Antwerpen, Kortrijk and Namen) on 4 different days. 2 Technicians installed all the hardware during the day and stayed the evening during the event on stand-by. When the event was over cleared the booth of our hardware and prepared it for the next event.
