Cortina Productions has signed a deal with Ultraleap to bring touchless technology to interactive exhibits in museums and aquariums. The technology will allow future visitors to control interactive content without touching public surfaces or buttons, eliminating concerns about COVID-19 transmission.
Cortina Productions’ interactive installations can be found at the most respected and renowned museums and attractions across the United States, including the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the International Spy Museum, George Washington’s Mount Vernon, and the Aquarium of the Pacific.
Saurabh Gupta, Director of OOH Product at Ultraleap, said: “As the world tries to get back to work with the threat of COVID-19 still present, museums, aquariums and exhibitions are looking for new ways to safely bring back visitors, as well as keep them entertained. Cortina Productions are at the cutting edge of designing immersive experiences. By combining their design expertise and our touchless technologies, they can create safe, innovative and next-generation interactive installations for their clients that visitors will love, and feel safe using.”
With this deal, Cortina Productions will adapt and include Ultraleap’s hand tracking technology into their experience production design. This technology will allow Cortina Productions to create a variety of new, 3D interactive interfaces and displays for museums that will reduce the need for visitors to touch public surfaces. These interfaces can also work as a suitable, hygienic replacement to touchscreen displays. Cortina Productions will also seek to retrofit existing touchscreen-based experiences for museums where possible to help solve the immediate need for safe and more engaging experiences in a post-COVID-19 environment.
Jim Cortina, Principal and Director of Development at Cortina Productions, said: “Over the last few months we’ve seen a drastic spike in requests from clients for touchless solutions for their interactive exhibits. Our clients rely on us to be at the forefront of new technology and to deliver experiences that are engaging and innovative. Ultraleap’s technology not only helps us to provide the ‘wow factor’, it is completely touchless, making it the perfect solution to our clients requests.”
This is not the first collaboration for Cortina Productions and Ultraleap. In 2019, they worked together to bring hand tracking and mid-air haptic technology to the Aquarium of the Pacific’s new Honda Pacific Visions theatre, the keystone project of their new Pacific Visions wing.
New or upgraded installations from Cortina Productions using Ultraleap technology will be deployed across the United States in the near future.
