One of the components of the BrandLab was an interactive, multimedia tablet array dubbed The Fireplace.
WeGeeks utilized Android, Ruby and HTML5/Websockets to produce a working prototype within two weeks. This prototype featured on-demand video playback across all tablets as well as an interactive voting display application. HTML5 based controls were provided for both hardware and software.
After confirmation of full functionality, WeGeeks was able to deliver a final product that integrated with YouTube's own interactive spaces software in an additional two weeks. Upon delivery, WeGeeks trained and provided documentation not only for upkeep of the "fireplace," but provided additional software hooks and insight for expanding the platform.
SIGN had a vision: to enable brands to create a powerful network of touch displays across their entire retail footprint.
