Northumbrian Water Group
As part of celebrating their Innovation Festival, Northumbrian Water Group asked MAADIGITAL to help demonstrate their new smart water meter to engineers and the public.
The major problem they faced was that the Innovation Festival was not going to be help in a single location, and face-to-face interaction and demonstrations were severely limited. NWG needed a way to get the device in front of customers and engineers without the exorbitant cost of shipping units across the country.
MAADIGITAL stepped in to create a smart and innovative display piece in augmented reality, meaning it could appear at true scale, anywhere, as well as performing tricks that a real-world object could never manage.
We worked with CAD drawings and precise specifications to recreate a 1:1 3D model for display in augmented reality.
To demonstrate the smart meter at its best, the app needed to incorporate a number of features beyond just augmenting the meter onto nearby surfaces.
