Telus Spark – Solar Watt Interactive

We designed and developed custom software for a unique solar generation and storage exhibit at the Telus Spark Science Centre. Using specialized current sensors and hardware the app measures and displays the power generated from a solar panel outside of the science centre. Through stylized custom charts and visuals designed for 4k resolution resolution, the software we developed dynamically displays the power generated from the solar panel, the power stored on the large battery in the gallery from the solar panel, and the power used by the exhibit lights and hardware. Visitors can turn on/off sets of various types of lights above the exhibit. Turning on all the lights will spell “WATT” and vistors can see live feedback of the power usage on-screen.
