Joanneum Research Flughafenkoje

Client Project for Joanneum Research in Corporation with EN GARDE Interdisciplinary, 2012.

Joanneum Research is a application-oriented research company from Graz, Austria. To inform the general public about their work and cutting-edge research projects, the company decided to setup a booth with an interactive installation at the  airport in Graz. The installation consists of several iPads and a large projection. Travellers can play a quiz with questions related to the company and its areas of research. By doing so, the users engage with otherwise stodgy topics, in a playful and fun manner, while passing their waiting time at the airport. Every quiz (=flight) is visualized on the world map. Every correct answer moves the players aircraft one step further towards Graz.

In corporation with the Austrian agency EN GARDE, I was involved in developing the concept as well as prototyping and wireframing the iPad app. The system is based on web technologies (HTML5/CSS3/PHP/JavaScript).
