Ericsson @ MWC

Interactive Installation, 2018

The Ericsson Interactive Gateways were premiered at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona where they ran flawlessly during four days, attracting and entertaining the tens of thousands of visitors at the Ericsson stand.

The Challenge

Design and implement algorithmic interactive visuals that reflect Ericsson’s new brand values. The brand messages are materialized in four interactive installations that react to participant’s presence in a unique way.
Given that the gateways are shaped like hallways, the output from the three Kinects of every gateway had to be combined and stitched using a custom calibration algorithm.
