  2. Complex Tech on a Light Device: Learnings from Nespresso AR

    Experimentation and iteration are always a big part of our process when it comes to working with new tech. This was especially true when we stepped back into the realm of augmented reality with Nespresso AR. For this project, we had to do a lot of R&D and testing to discover the possibilities of both the software and the hardware, and how these elements could integrate with one another.

  3. Pushing the Limits of Mobile AR with Nespresso

    We recently made our latest foray into mobile augmented reality with Nespresso AR. The brief was to find an innovative way to introduce and reinforce key messages at their 2019 staff training events through augmented reality. The result was three 10-15 second AR experiences using coffee-inspired animations to explore the story of Nespresso’s new Vertuo coffee pods at events across Australia.

    Beyond The Stars Health Education Program in the Pacific Islands.
    The Pacific is a beautiful region with a dangerous future. Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) like diabetes, obesity and heart disease are the single largest cause of death in the region. Often caused by preventable factors such as diet and activity, NCDs account for over 70% of deaths across the Pacific.

    User's exploring a virtual reality supermarket for Adobe 'Make-It' - Small.
    Have you ever stopped to consider how the emerging technologies of today might influence our lives tomorrow? If you have, you’ve probably found the exercise both exciting and frustrating: while considering the endless possibilities for change may be thrilling, it can be hard to visualise things that don’t even exist yet.

  9. Making a 360° Virtual Reality Experience on Climate Change for COP23

    Behind the scenes for COP23 virtual reality in Fiji - Small.
    A couple months ago we were asked to work on a World Bank project in collaboration with the Fijian Government that tackled climate change. Having recently discovered my own personal passion for the topic, and with the United Nations’ 23rd annual session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 23) coming up, it was the perfect time to highlight climate vulnerability using a uniquely inspiring technology and a film titled ‘Our Home, Our People’.

The 360° virtual reality documentary series takes you into the heart of the Asia-Pacific to experience life in conflict-afflicted areas. While the films have been publicly accessible for some time – through a dedicated website and our YouTube channel - they’re now also available on Create NSW’s premier virtual reality app, 360 Vision.

  12. The Power and Pain of Mobile VR

    Terri Scheer destroyed Virtual Reality house.
    It all started back in 2014, when Google launched Cardboard as a way for people to experience the world of VR through their smartphones. A year later, Samsung got on board with their Gear VR, and before we knew it Google was back with the Daydream View just last year. And it’s not just the big names who are getting involved. Even a quick search for “mobile VR headset” reveals dozens of options. Homido VR, Mattel View Master, Zeiss VR One… the list goes on and on. There’s no avoiding it: we’ve well and truly entered the era of mobile VR.
