The first example of an artefact that is connected to the internet, such as a machine or other industrial product from which all later forms are developed: a protiotype for/of a new smart, connected product.
Protiotype was the exclusive Internet of Things event at Sydney Design 2014. The exhibition was held at Central Park Mall - a new retail shopping mall and residential lifestyle precinct in the heart of Sydney.
This setting provided the ideal venue to engage a young, educated demographic of early adopters eager to explore this new technology paradigm that sits at the intersection of consumer electronics, the internet and design.
Beyond the Internet of Things the exhibition provided a showcase for Modn Media's partners to demonstrate innovative technologies to the 3,000 consumers who attended.
David Burden the CEO of iProximity and Rohan Lean, CTO, discuss NFC TapBoards with journalist Tess Bennett.
iProximity installed QR codes, beacons, NFC tags alongside their new invention NFC TapBoards - Read the story on ApplianceRetailer.com.au - These technologies enabled visitors to access the exhibitions supporting online content. The NFC tags were well received by visitors to the event with more visitors interacting via NFC tag than QR code or beacon.
Objective Experience performed an eye tracking demonstration and explained how eye tracking technology is used in the design process.
Twitter - who were a sponsor of the show - installed their 'Twitter Mirror' so that visitors could tweet selfies live from the exhibition.
Solidifier, Australia's first maker space for start-ups, exhibited a drone and a miniature CNC mill which intrigued the hundreds of engineers and designers who visited the show.
