Recognising that education is the key to protecting Cape Mountain Leopards, Leopard’s Leap Wine Farm commissioned Formula D interactive to design and build an educational leopard display for their visitor centre in Franshoek.
The result is an interactive wall projection loaded with game-enhancing technology. The 3-meter projection loops realistically rendered animations of Cederberg landscapes. Three different sets of day and night scenes are displayed.
When visitors step in front of the wall, their virtual avatars appear on the screen in front of them. Each visitor is randomly assigned an avatar and up to 3 people can interact with the multimedia application at the same time.
The interactive installation is embedded with information about leopards and conservation. But this is no run-of-the-mill infographic. Players are encouraged to discover content by themselves, just as a researcher would in the field. Moving freely across the floor, each player can trigger different hotspots on the screen, uncovering information as they go.
