Our PufferSpheres are well traveled. They have been to six continents, met 'A' list celebrities, entertained thousands in concert and educated just as many in museums; but one industry which remained foreign was the most luxurious industry of all. Superyachts.
This was put right in September when super yacht integration specialists van Berge Henegouwen partnered with the team at Oculus to showcase an interactive globe to the Superyacht industry at the 2013 Monaco Yacht Show.
Using a high resolution PufferSphere M600, they showed a simple globe application, allowing users to rotate the earth, open touch points and view photos of yachts at set locations. Used simply to show off the displays functionality, the long term plan is to integrate the YachtEye solution from Oculus on the sphere itself, allowing individuals to track routes, itineraries, weather systems and time zones on the interactive globe.
A fantastic show, thanks to the team at Oculus and van Verge Henegouwen, the PufferSphere can now claim to have begun its public life in the most luxurious of surroundings.
