Making the World more fun with Technology
There are some really exciting things happening in the tech world at the moment, including virtual and augmented reality, drones, small cheap computers like the Raspberry Pi, iBeacons, and motion tracking hardware like the Xbox Kinect. All this stuff can be used in interesting and exciting ways for experiential marketing, adding spice to events or enhancing an exhibit at an attraction. Contra’s geeks know all about this stuff – if we’re not using it at work, we’re playing with it at home anyway.
Intersecting Technology with the Physical World
Contra creates beautiful and useful digital experiences, and this doesn’t always mean a website or a mobile app. The Internet is connecting everyday items and producing richer experiences. At Contra, we want to harness the latest innovations and use them to change things for the better.
Unity Kiosks and Games
Unity is a great game development framework used by indie game developers and large games companies. We use it for creating interactive kiosks and games for attractions such as Cadbury’s World. Since Unity is a complete game development framework, we can create anything from simple presentations, to 2D puzzles, to 3D games.
It's All Software (and Hardware)
Since unity games, interactive kiosks, augmented reality apps and Raspberry Pi sensors all run using bespoke software, we follow best practice software development practices, like we do with web application development and mobile app development. This means agile project planning, test driven development and Continuous Integration.
