Blue Telescope, the interactive exhibit agency, has been awarded with 4 Communicator Awards, including one Award of Excellence, by the International Academy of the Visual Arts.

The Blue Telescope projects were recognized from over 6,000 entries in this year’s competition which celebrates the creative excellence of communications professionals.

Recognized with Awards of Distinction were Tessellation Maker and Twisty Puzzle Design, a pair of interactive multi-touch tabletop activities developed with Liberty Science Center for the travelling exhibit Beyond Rubik’s CubeTessellation Maker lets visitors explore the geometry of patterns and tessellations by snapping shapes together to create more complex objects, launching colorful animations, and drawing parallels to tessellations found in everyday life.  Twisty Puzzle Design allows guests to create, scramble, and solve their own virtual customizable 3-D puzzles.  The experience helps visitors understand the geometry of the puzzles and the relationship between the core mechanics and their outer appearance.

The Injection Simulator, created for Ipsen, educates doctors in treatment techniques for cervical dystopia.  The simulator utilizes a life-size mannequin with a soft surface in the neck to allow users the opportunity to practice precision injections.  An adjacent display shows the syringe’s position in the musculature and provides information about the amount of medication virtually injected into each muscle.  The Injection Simulator received an Award of Distinction.

Honored with an Award of Excellence was Redefine Your Space, Blue Telescope’s own multimedia installation designed to demonstrate the company’s interactive design capabilities and showcase three emerging technologies at EXHIBITOR2014. A stereoscopic 3D adventure using Oculus Rift virtual headsets, projection mapping onto an abstract geometric structure, and tablets utilizing augmented reality resulted in immersive, transformative experiences for small spaces.

Blue Telescope uses technology, storytelling, and design to create engaging interactive exhibits and live events.  From multi-touch and mobile apps to games, quizzes, and social interactives, we develop innovative solutions using the latest technology to build traffic and deliver brand messages.
