Interactive 3D Multitouch Interactive Tables x Hitachi 'Inspire Life' Conference, London/Paris


I was tasked with building 22 interactive ‘tables’ for Hitachi’s high-profile ‘Inspire Life’ event in London & Paris.

These tables allowed people to explore Hitachi’s products and services using a unique 3D ‘rubix cube’ interface. The interfaces would also have to be multitouch, so that a ‘spread’ motion on the surface would explode the cube, showing the product headings. Pressing an individual cube would display information and images related to that area.
