Future Cities Catapult
Central London, UK
The Future Cities Catapult (now Connected Cities Catapult) is one of several government-backed Catapult centres dotted around the UK.
An incredible resource, this network of world-leading facilities is designed to transform the UK’s capability for innovation, and help drive future economic growth. And, as its name suggests, the Future Cities Catapult in Central London has an emphasis on advanced urban services.
To extend the benefits of Shared VR, Future Cities Catapult wanted an Igloo system onsite. We therefore installed a 6-metre cylinder at the Urban Innovation Centre in Central London, where it became available for anyone to hire out for data visualisation tasks and Shared VR presentations.
Used for controlling most aspects of the Igloo system, like triggering content, controlling playback and switching between content types.
An application that controls the Igloo wirelessly over a dedicated Wi-Fi network. Easily control different functions from tabs across the top of the app.
Back-end software that seamlessly blends all content from the multiple projectors in the Igloo. Corrects geometry and colour for an immersive experience.
