Gesture and Motion Based Interactive Solutions

 

Gesture is the new touch!
Why touch a screen when you can use hand gestures to completely control the content?
Why not do your next large screen presentation using gesture rather than touch?
Any AV solution from projection to video walls to LCD screens can be used with the addition of the interactive gesture based sensors to register the gestures and with the required programming to convert this gesture to motion control.
Content creation possibilities are unlimited depending on budget to make the content as rich as possible. Hand based gesture tracking, body tracking or motion based object tracking is all possible! The creative options and possibilities are endless. Guaranteed to draw interest and get the audience having fun while learning your material.
We specialise in providing Leap Motion and Kinect gesture based solutions and have also worked with a couple other motion based infrared and camera based tracking solutions.

Projected Technologies and Solutions

 

  • Video logo: Our Video logo is a high gain light reflecting surface able to absorb more of the projection light than ordinary projection surfaces. Coupled with this, as it is a solid surface similar to perspex, we are able to die cut shape the surface to a logo or any shape required with laser cutting. Thereafter we merely create the video and 2D motion graphic video material to fit the shape. We call this our Video Logo. It brings a logo to life. Great for logo reveals at an event, Retail shop fronts. Video Logo is generally hung from the ceiling with a rear projector is mounted behind the screen. Since the material is cut to a specific shape it is not a rental option and only a purchase option. Fog Screen Displays.
  • Virtual Presenters – We are now offering the ability to create your own virtual presenter. Similar to the Video Logo concept but here we create a Virtual Presenter. A video of a salesperson or MC presenter is recorded in a green screen studio, Along with an acrylic cut-out that is created using the outline of their body.  A projector is placed behind the virtual presenter and connected to your computer that loops the content of your video on the rear projected virtual presenter cut out surface. Directional hidden speakers play the sound, resulting in a life-like video representation of your salesperson or MC presenter – that never needs a break or requests underserved salary increases!
  • 3D Building Mapping – 3D Mapping is the art of combining 3D content with existing shapes and surfaces, be they: A place –building or surface OR a product –bottle, car, etc. By mapping the surface, we are able to create a digital canvass of the surface and create unique visual 3D material that is projected onto the surface, to make it look as though the actual surface is altering or changing. You can even make the 3D mapped surface interactive using a mobile device or tablet, that allows us to create a large claw game projected onto a building or adding a touch screen allowing guests to graffiti onto a large building surface or car graffiti surface – DIGITALLY!
  • 3D Hologram Projected Displays
  • Interactive Front or Rear Projected Kinect Based iWalls. Turn a wall into an interactive wall surface, Create an interactive wall projected game or experience, Colour in a 2D sketch, scan it in, convert it into a popular character that you have coloured in, interact with the character in their environment, see it move in their environment. A concept using augmented reality / virtually bringing 2D drawings to life… great for kids activations!
  • Interactive Projected Floors
  • Interactive Projected front and rear Digibooks – iBook.
  • Interactive Projected Tables
  • Event Presentation Screens
  • Air Digital Graffiti Wall – Interactive, virtual and digital graffiti wall. An interactive rear-projection pre-built wall setup that takes just 1 to 2 hours to setup up at your event. Where you use an actual spray can with an infrared laser to spray on a digital surface. Save the photo with your branding, upload the photo to social networks, print the photo on colour glossy photo paper. Hire 1 of our photographers along with a DSLR camera to take photos of guests (using green screen or with out green screen), have the photos uploaded to the graffiti wall and graffiti on the photo, change backgrounds, add clip arts. A hugely memorable fun experience. You can even use the graffiti wall in a more serious manner where the speaker in a presentation can graffiti points or draw on to the wall from each session. The images get saved and distributed at the end of each day of the conference or team building.

Augmented Reality

 

Afriten Technologies create Augmented Reality applications and AR experiences.
Augmented Reality (AR) is a software application that combines virtual 2D/3D or video elements with a live camera feed to create a mixed reality experience.​​
The software uses image recognition to identify a trigger, and motion tracking to keep the virtual elements anchored to the trigger.
The software is able to track print, product, facial features, places and shapes, as long as there is enough detail to track.​​
The software is further enhanced with interactive capabilities by tracking your hand over the trigger (like pressing buttons on a page) or identifying the movement of the trigger to be used as controller inputs in a gaming experience (e.g. a bottle of beer becomes the gaming remote).
The software is also able to include randomisation and algorithms in order to be used as an incentive delivery mechanism (e.g. 1 out of 10 winners).​

Virtual Reality

 

Virtual Reality Technology allows us to create entire immersive 360-degree virtual worlds and realistic environments for your guests to engage with.
The content options are unlimited only curbed by possible budget limitations, and there are extensive hardware requirements to track the person and their movements as well as the headset to deliver a realistic view of the created world.
Therefore it is a more personal solution suitable to low numbers of guests at a time.
We offer PC based VR on the HTC Vive platform as well as Mobile based VR on Samsung Gear VR headsets. We also offer custom colour printed Google Cardboard V2’s that can be used as giveaways at events – from a quantity of 500 to 1,000 pieces and upwards to over 100,000 pieces.
We specialise in Unity 3D VR virtual Reality content development creation, Green Screen Video Productions and green screen editing and compositing, 3D Modelling in both Maya and 3DS Max.
We own our own Go Pro Hero 4 Black 6x 360 camera rigs along with 360 video stitching software allowing us to create professional Virtual 360 degree Tours for your event, website or Youtube page.

Scent Technologies

 

Ozmoose Scent Technology allows us to replicate a large number of popular scents or fragrances and “distribute” this particular smelling fragrance into a particular area to make it smell like that scent or fragrance. Various scents can be chosen such as grass, coffee, popcorn, freshly baked bread smells.

Sound Technologies

 

  • Whispering Window – Turn any surface, be it a wooden table or glass store front into a speaker using a Whispering Window Device. Guests will have no idea where the sound is coming from and often look around for the speaker. The unit produces precise high energy/small movement (micro vibrations) that are harnessed to resonate surfaces turning them into high quality, powerful and wide bandwidth speakers. Stores in London have been boasting a 40% increase in sales in the first week of using a Whispering Window device. We have previously used the device at MTN Fairlands head office accompanied with an infrared Motion Sensor. The activation allowed a sound clip to be played when guests entered the building through a glass turnstile. We have also used this technology many times at car shows and car dealerships in South Africa where consumers open the car door and a sound clip plays on the specifications of the car.
 
  • Directional Audio Shower Units – We distribute a sound shower unit which is great for exhibition environments where you may need controlled audio playing at a particular area. The unit is rigged from the ceiling above the point where the person stands. The unit enables you to control the direction of the sound waves.

Audience/Guest Tracking & Analytics

 

With almost 15 years experience working in the BTL and marketing activational field. We noticed how important it is to measure analytics and ROI from the conducted marketing activity/s.
 
We have developed an Audience/Guest Tracking system and continuously look to build and improve on it as we make progress in this field.
 
The system consists of hardware and software components that look to measure some key statistics from the marketing activity or mall space activation.
 
We have developed two Audience / Guest Analytics System Offerings:
 
  • Camera based – allows us to track faces in a particular area using a positioned camera with a Windows or Android Software System. Allowing us to count the number of guests, Tell who was Female/Male, Tell an approximate age of the visitors as well. The cloud backend system allows the client to pull any data required at any given time.
  • WiFi Signal Based tracking. This is a custom developed system that continuously scans an area for WiFi signals. Using an in-depth algorithm, we are able to calculate how close the person is based on their WiFi signal strength. The system does need the guests WiFi to be enabled. However, with the growing amount of Fibre and free Wifi solutions at home and at the office, we are finding this number to be quite high and increasing. All data collected is put into a local and cloud database which then allows the client to pull any data that they would like at their convenience. For example, they can ask the system to tell it how many guests were picked up at a particular area over a particular time period.
 
We also have a WiFi based Free Internet offering solution for events and high density areas like taxi ranks. The systen works very similar to how Youtube and Youtube adverts system works. Guests log on to a WiFi network for free internet access. To gain access to the free internet – guests must complete a survey or fill in their details for a particular competition. Every 5 minutes a pop-up advert could appear. This is a great way to build up a database in a particular targeted market/area.
 
 

Voting Remote Systems

Audience Voting Remote Systems allows the audience to be more involved in the presentation by conducting a live survey with the audience, can also let you create your own game show, or create a fun team building element - where staff vote on certain internal awards. 

Each person in the audience is given a Voting Remote with letters on it (Letter buttons are A,B,C,D,E,F). The audience can press the corresponding button to answer questions that are shown on the large screen asked by the presenter. The question gets shown on the screen and the audience answer the question "live" using the voting remotes. 

The system is completely wireless and collects inputs instantaneously.

Question results can be given in three different ways:

  1. Live results after each question;
  2. Live results after the entire survey;
  3. Results can be private where only the speaker/presenter can see them.

Printers

  • Coffee Foam Printer – Allows you to Colour Print Edible logos, photos, selfies, text onto coffee foam, Cappuccinos, Hot chocolates and a number of other food items quickly and cost effectively, using our Coffee Foam Photo Printer. A new and easy method of doing Latte Art.
  • Sticker/Label printers that get stuck onto packaging for special occasions for retail stores and activations - We setup an activational area in your retail store or outside your retail store as a centre court activation, along with your promotional/activation company. Our activation elements include a touch screen kiosk or touch screen on plinth along with a sticker printer/s. Customers are enticed to purchase a particular range of products and then bring the product and till slip to the activational area. The till slip is checked and they are allowed to make use of the sticker printing system. At the touch screen kiosk, guest can input their name or a loved one's name, chose a design, etc and print it. The sticker gets printed and stuck onto the product. This solution is completely customisable. Works great for special occasions and holidays such as during Valentines Day, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, etc. Customers will love the idea of getting a custom chocolate box design with their loved one's names on it. Perfect as a gift. Resulting in increased product sales and a growing emotional touch with your brand and the customer. Marketers know the importance of igniting brand growth via building an emotional connection with the brand.
