Artfabrik is a digital development and production company that has been around for 12 years. Primarily, the company began producing video and photography but has since evolved into a multi-media agency.
With in-house programmers on board to create applications, Artfabrik now also works with virtual and augmented reality. They believe that ‘Interdisciplinary is key’, and so do we.
Artfabrik was tasked with providing information to visitors in the mini museum on the Nordkette mountain, Austria, by their client, Innsbrucker Nordkettenbahnen Betriebs GmbH. In order to achieve a multi-channel approach, Artfabrik needed hardware that complimented its software. Creating a powerful and engaging experience and enabling its customers to navigate the content at the visitor hub.
At the waiting area of the lower station of the Seegrube gondola, the small museum exhibits photos, information and thanks to Artfabrik, an interactive touch application.
“It integrates nicely in the environment and really puts focus on the application itself.”
The application allows curious visitors to explore the mountain in more detail. Appearing in 3D form, guests can see the mountain in 360 view, click on different hot spots and view videos of them. The location means thousands of people would be using this every day, meaning durability was a key concern.
“An important feature for us was the robust construction, to endure more than 500,000 visitors per year of the Nordkette.” Joel van den Hoven, Head of Interactive, Web Production and VR departments, continues, “It integrates nicely in the environment and really puts focus on the application itself.”
“It looked really solid, sturdy and robust, and had a very sleek design, so we knew this was the right fit for us."
“It looked really solid, sturdy and robust, and had a very sleek design, so we knew this was the right fit for us. We also like there are so many different variations of the Bouncepad and are already certain to make use of them for other projects.”
