CES Playground

A dynamic visual application

Red Paper Heart's innovative data visualization project stands at the intersection of technology, design, and interactivity, delivering a dynamic visual backend in collaboration with Brand New School. Together, they have crafted a digital experience for Google’s CES booth that seamlessly blends animated content, captivating visualizations, and live data overlays.

We created art breaks between information and product information to deliver moments such as music visualizations that transform soundwaves into mesmerizing patterns and movements, syncing the visual display with the rhythm and intensity of the music. This auditory-visual synergy creates a multisensory journey for participants.

In addition to music visualizations, the project incorporates selfie stations that allow users to become active participants in the visual landscape, inserting themselves into the digital realm and customizing their experience. These interactive elements extend further with video content seamlessly integrated into the environment, enriching the narrative and engaging users on multiple levels.

One of the project's standout features is its ability to dynamically populate real-time graphics, providing users with up-to-the-minute data insights presented in a visually compelling format. Whether it's live event metrics, social media trends, or environmental data, the application transforms raw information into accessible and engaging visualizations, fostering deeper understanding and connection.

The success of the program speaks volumes, as it has been expanded upon for three consecutive years, with each iteration introducing new content and interactions. This iterative approach reflects a commitment to innovation and evolution, continuously pushing the boundaries of what is possible in data visualization and interactive design.

Ultimately, Red Paper Heart's data visualization project is a testament to the power of collaboration, creativity, and user-centric design. By seamlessly blending technology with storytelling, it creates an immersive experience that resonates with audiences and leaves a lasting impression
