Touching Oslo’s history

AUTHOR: Inavate

The Coastal Society in Norway is presenting information about Oslo’s history with a touch screen display that uses Visual Planet’s ViP Interactive Foil. The attraction is at Aker Brygge, a harbour in the centre of Oslo, and utilises four 46” NEC LCD thin bezel monitors.

The installation is housed in a container near a harbour in the centre of Oslo. The foil is overlays the NEC displays with a 15mm gap between glass and monitor.

Back AS and Touch-It designed and installed the large format interactive display as a pilot project in the busiest shopping and business area in Oslo. Integrated with the four LCD screens the 92’’ ViP Interactive Foil was enclosed behind glass and protected from the harsh weather conditions on the harbour and robust demands of a high footfall location in Norway’s capital.

The display software incorporated Google Maps and Adobe Flash programs whilst allowing users to add their own information via a multi-lingual web based interface consequently sharing points of interest, informative articles and pictures of their experiences.
