Puppet Parade is an interactive installation that allows children to use their arms to puppeteer larger than life creatures projected on the wall in front of them. Children can also step in to the environment and interact with the puppets directly, petting them or making food for them to eat. This dual interactive setup allows children to perform alongside the puppets, blurring the line between the ‘audience’ and the puppeteers and creating an endlessly playful dialogue between the children in the space and the children puppeteering the creatures.
EpicMix is an RFID lift ticket system that integrates with an iOS/Android app, website and your social networks to provide the ultimate mountain experience. The RFID chip in each lift ticket tracks you across the entire mountain, and that, combined with the smartphone app and website provides rewards, badges, live friend connectivity and a full rage of stats as you explore the mountain.
