Last weekend, we were testing our car robot installation for the Deutsches Museum in Munich. It was a huge success. After building the installation on Saturday, people were able to drive around the cabinet on Sunday using gesture control only. We learned a lot about the difficulties they had with our control metaphors and we were also able to test the technical specifications in detail.
As one of the volunteers at the museum said: Normally, there are not a lot of people in the IT department, but with the new exhibition, it is all of a sudden very crowded.
We will keep on incrementing our showcase and test it a few more times before we “release” our first version early next year.
