The world’s biggest interactive multitouch installation, at Queensland University’s The Cube exhibition space, which includes 48x 55″ MultiTaction unlimited touch displays from MultiTouch Ltd – and a two-story, 14-metre-long Virtual Reef, which combines 20x Displays with an edge-blended projection system. Queensland University of Technology’s (QUT) innovative digital interactive learning exhibition space, ‘The Cube’, is the heart of QUT’s new A$230 million Science and Engineering Centre.
The exhibition includes 48x 55” ultra-thin bezel (UTB) MultiTaction Cell displays, forming the 1,400 cubic metre Cube. The Cube comprises 6 educational zones, including the two-storey, 14-metre-long Virtual Reef where 20 Cells ingeniously combine with an edge-blended Panasonic projection system, and the innovative Physics Zone.
Built by Pro AV Solutions Queensland – Australian member of the Global Presence Alliance – and one of the biggest spaces of its kind in the world, The Cube structure is made up of 6 zones (five of which feature MultiTaction displays), running a number of interactive applications, including the Virtual Reef. It is dedicated to providing an inspiring, explorative and participatory experience of QUT’s Science and Engineering research and is the heart of the university’s new Science and Engineering Centre at Gardens Point campus.
The zones run a number of interactive applications:
• Virtual Reef: marine life interactive experience
• CubIT: QUT research access & collaboration
• Community Science wall: Queensland experiences, including 2011 Brisbane floods
• ECOS: energy consumption & impact on climate
• Physics Playroom: learning in game-like environment
