Technically Creative, the immersive experience expert, has worked on a project for Xplore, a groundbreaking FEC in Athens, Greece.
Technically Creative is pleased to announce that it has been working on a project for Xplore FEC in Athens, where it has added its creative flair to the centre’s three exciting sections, the “Exploratorium”, “Adventureland” and the “Aquarium”. The project began in September 2019 and the second phase of the installation has now been completed,
Located just outside of the Greek capital, the FEC offers a range of fun and educational experiences to visitors of all ages. For example, they can play a laser harp or a giant piano, design and service a car, race each other on a racing simulator or even feed virtual fish.
The Virtual Village
The FEC is also home to a brand new product, Virtual Village, designed and created by Technically Creative. This exhibit is the culmination of almost 6 months of product design and programming. Virtual Village lets visitors use various transport types, for example, boats, planes, trains and cars, as physical hands-on models, which they place on the sensing internal projection table.
This sensing system knows what type of transport has been placed and where, and uses live rendering software to build a virtual village in real-time.
Delivering a complete project
As well as the innovative exhibits, the company also provided the lighting, show control, electrical control system, audio and PA systems throughout the centre. Technically Creative offers a one-stop-shop business model, ensuring that projects run smoothly without the need for subcontractors. Guests at Xplore will now enjoy more than 14 new interactives as the result of the project.
Managing Director Marc Broadbent says, “From inception, through design and with great input from the client team I’m very proud for the company and my team to have played a major part in delivering this magnificent project. I’m sure you will agree that the Xplore Athens attraction stands out and proud as the only major go-to Greek attraction for children of all ages in both play and learning.”
