Marine Institute of Ireland – Technology that delivers a wow.

Science communications specialist agency, Blue Inspiration, was tasked with creating an engaging, interactive exhibition to showcase the Marine Institute of Ireland’s work and achievements. The goal was to identify a technology that delivers a wow factor and provides an intuitive understanding of the importance and scope of modern oceanography. With tactile engagement a key focus for marine science educators, it was imperative that the installation was suitable for a wide audience.

The PufferTouch, the world’s leading touch-enabled spherical display, offered the ideal balance of scale and presence for the customer, with the ability to deliver engaging content in a powerful way. Interactivity was added through a touch interface, engaging audiences in a more meaningful way. In addition to the core sphere, we supplied a secondary touch screen to be used with the PufferTouch in conjunction with our market-leading software.

Our solution allowed visitors to select from a series of related topics and see easily-digestible, and highly engaging data visualisations on the PufferTouch. This was reinforced with stunning visual content and explanatory text on the separate interactive screen, which really delivers a wow.

Through the PufferTouch, the Marine Institute told the story of their important work – including around research and policy. Working together, we helped them engage stakeholders and offer a hands-on way of helping people to understand the importance of our marine environments.

The Pufferfish team were incredibly easy to deal with. They answered all our technical and non-technical questions, managed expectations, and delivered the key piece of our exhibition within a very tight timeframe, and with ultimate professionalism. We were so impressed with the product and the service received that we ordered a second system. We could not recommend Pufferfish highly enough.Blue Inspiration, on behalf of the Marine Institute of Ireland
