Projects: ISO/Mercedes/Telematics

Telematics is a touchscreen exhibit exploring the ideas behind and use of 'telematics' in future Mercedes car designs. 

Users touch a local screen and pan and zoom around a large plane of expanding overlapping 'subject circles'. Each circle contains information and further discussion of the section, as well as an assortment of rich media elements such as animations and spoken word explaining ideas further. A large slave screen broadcasts user interactions and 'trains of thought' to the public space.

The experience is like taking part in a loose discussion of complex futuristic ideas. The ambient sound and animation easing add to the atmosphere.
