Gadgets is an interactive hi-tech guide to the gadgets used by Bond throughout the books and movies. The interface is a single trackerball embedded within a wooden sill structure. The image is a projection on to 'Holopro' glass, a surface which is almost totally transparent but is able to hold projected images. The result is a 'Tron-like' animated surface.
Moving rotating the trackerball rotated the scene - a 'cloud' of different animated 3D objects. The real rotation of the ball exactly matches the rotation of the 3D scene, creating a strong sense of immersion. As objects come into proximity, the animate. Selecting an object is simply a matter of setting the camera view on the same object for a few seconds - this releases supporting information and rich media elements. the entire experience is supported by appropriate tech sound effects.
