TAP M&E Paris Air Show 2011

June 26th, 2011 by NearInteraction

NearInteraction was part of the 49th International Paris Air Show 2011 held at the Le Bourget Airport at the end of June, with a series of interactive installations revealing the services offered by TAP Maintenance and Engineering (TAP M&E). NearInteraction was responsible for an eye-catching gesture based interactive wall, comprised of 4 large scale high-res screens where visitors were able to manipulate the inner workings of an aeroplane by using their arms, and an all inclusive iPad app of TAP M&E facts and figures which connected in real-time to the interactive wall, displaying any content that was being browsed at that moment.

At an event that brings together more than 2100 exhibitors from 45 countries, it is an important consideration to stand out from the crowd, a consideration achieved by NearInteraction with an interactive LED installation embedded into the booth’s specially designed awnings, featuring RGB light that was able to respond to both presence and movement with beautiful dynamical transitions of color as attendees passed by.

Love, love is in your hands…

February 24th, 2011 by NearInteraction

If you are passing by the Lisbon Colombo Fnac concept store, check out NearInteraction’s ode to love on the way in, displayed in a giant 50″ inch screen. For the interactive piece, NearInteraction moved beyond gestural 2D into 3D, using the recently released Kinect infrared camera. Not only does this innovation allow tracking of more than one hand as well as depth of field producing a more sensorial environment for the user, it also has simultaneous multi-user use. The installation was navigated gesturally using both hands, creating a simple yet eye-catching Valentines promotion that many couples stopped to interact with before moving into the store.


NearInteraction partners with the Ministry of Culture leading the future…

September 30th, 2010 by NearInteraction

This September saw NearInteraction showcasing several technological pieces on behalf of the Ministry of Culture of Portugal at the technology fair “Portugal Tecnológico 2010″, the nation’s largest technology and innovation show, held at the Feira Internacional de Lisboa (FIL) exhibition centre.

Welcoming in the new wave…

Using a gesturally guided installation to showcase MatrizPix, an information system responsible for the management of images and archives of the Instituto dos Museus e da Conservação, was NearInteraction’s first choice to relay a physical exploring experience to the viewer whilst browsing the archive of digitalised files.

Posting the freedom of artistic creation…

Highlighting the works produced by the arts residencies represented by DGARTES, (a Direcção-Geral das Artes) NearInteraction’s object recognition installation reveals documentary style videos activated by postcards held up to the monitor.



Keeping touch with history…

NearInteraction created a multi-layered multi-touch table visually showcasing the processes that are represented by DGARQ, (a Direcção Geral de Arquivos) the coordinating body of the national archives which overlooks in all forms and mediums of archiving throughout the country. Focused on areas such as network and file systems, the safeguarding of assets, classifications, preservation of documents and the dissemination of information, this particular multi-touch table focused on the Torre de Tombo site.

By making use of interactive technology to relay a virtual experience to all the various aspects represented by the Ministry of Culture, NearInteraction’s portfolio of works exhibited at FIL, were accessible to both professionals and the public at large, allowing the Ministry of Culture to play a memorable part.
