Digital Shoreditch 2015

Touchez’s director Bart Kamp held a talk at Shoreditch Town Hall in the Mayor’s Parlour at the Digital Shoreditch Festival entitled ”NUI World”.

Using multi-touch software to present its history and various requirements of the Natural User Interface and some of its implementations in Augmented Reality, Multi-touch, Motion Tracking and Virtual Reality, all crammed into 20 minutes.

JFK Assassination  Application set  V 1.0 

We needed a new pet project something we could dabble with for months to come.

We chose the J.F.K. assassination in Dallas, Texas which will have its 50th anniversary on Nov. 22nd 2013, a moment that has been covered by a lot of authors, film makers and photographers but also has a vast amount of documentation from the D.P.D. to the F.B.I. to the C.I.A. and so forth available on the web.

This Big Data project will take quite some time to assemble and get acquainted with some of its many queries and aspects. We just started this project in September and are aware that so far we have only lifted a small tip of the veil that concerns this major historic event.

Let’s look at what is available here: ballistics evidence, the physical evidence, medical evidence, film & photographic evidence, witness testimonies, and the events in Dealey Plaza itself.

We have Oswald, Ruby, Shaw, Tippit, Philips, Dulles, LeMay, LBJ, Ferrie, Banister, Hoover, Garrison, the FBI, the Dallas Police, the Warren Commission, the Russians, the Mafia, the anti-Castro Cubans, and the CIA.

An enormous amount of data, has been collated, with its first release being 10GB of multi-media . We acquire further knowledge on some of the facts of this case which we then try to represent inside Omnitapps multi-touch suite.  Even now new material appears.

The researchers who meticulously go through the available files and report its findings and the foundations, forums and individuals who make this material available are the ones who deserve the credit for the content. We have made a slide show with all credited sources that we have used, and some of the apps itself have the makers name on the background included.

We chose the Metro style menu as this enabled us to create a good overview of the content of the various applications used. Finally we added some educational games, although this is a serious matter, we thought we’d brand some games to lighten the mood a tad.

This video only shows a few glimpses and we will shortly present a comprehensive overview of the JFK assassination application set.

This  project is for educational, presentational & research purposes only.

Classifying the data by the subject without the intention to ‘solve the case’, but solely to catalogue some of the available documented evidence for anyone to go through and gain knowledge at a much faster compared to any traditional website.

Applicable to many sectors in the market, research, education and museums. that require interactive solutions with Big Data in a multi-touch environment. An enormous asset to presentations!

The interactive software experience will enhance the experience compared to traditional digital advertising on passive screens tenfold!

Livestock Birmingham

We have just completed a job at the Livestock Event in Birmingham  for Pfizer, using Omnitapps.

Here are some screenshots.

Screen media Expo

We had a  stand with our rental partner Smart AV at Screen Media Expo, which was held in Earls Court 2.

We demoed various applications of Omnitapps on a bespoke overlay for a Panasonic 103″ TH-103PF10EK.

NEC Showcase

Last week we were at the NEC showcase which was held at the bubble inside the o2 arena with multi-touch screen manufacturer DisplayLite.

The event was attended by almost 900 people, on a very wet and windy day,  but even so a major increase compared to the event a year ago at Battersea Power Station.

The setting was dark and moody, especially in the Innovation Hall where three screens resided, and in this setting  the screen was king!

Touchez was able to demonstrate various apps of Omnitapps on three different DisplayLite  screens, them being:

1- A 32” NEC  panel with 12 TP the IRMUV321-12 which displayed Omnimarker with a floor plan of the event and photos, pdfs and videos associated with all 9 zones.

2-A 32″ NEC panel with integrated NextWindow technology with 2 TP, the OITUV321-2, with Omnirequest containing 106 pdf’s of various screens and projectors available from NEC.

3-In the Retail area a 123” interactive multi-touch (32TP)  video wall overlay, the VWX4621X3-32. With 3 x 46” NEC X462UN video wall displays.  Content was Omnitimeline;  a timeline application with fashion photos as content.

4. The final DisplayLite unit was in the back of the Innovation area, where a 55″ NEC panel (32 TP), the OITUP551-32 which demonstrated the UrbanFlood software which is an European project  investigating the use of sensors within flood embankments to support an online early warning system, real time emergency management and routine asset management.

Gadget Show Live

Soho Events commissioned us to provide a multi touch solution for their new stand for The Telegraph, the first show was at The Gadget Show Live at the NEC in Birmingham last week and it will travel around the U.K. all year long.

We used Omnitapps on 3 46″ multitouch screens made by Displaylite to emulate certain aspects of The Telegraph’s IPad app, containing games and current affairs content in picture, video, pdf and website formats.

Needless to say it went down very well with the visitors tapping, dragging and dropping at The Gadget Show Live in the Birmingham N.E.C.
