Toyota FCV

Toyota FCV

We built a travelling interactive installation that playfully teaches users about Toyota’s new Mirai which is a Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle.

The installation has been run at the;

  • Los Angeles International Auto Show
  • Detroit International Auto Show
  • New York International Auto Show
  • Tokyo Motor Show

International Traveling Installation

This project was brought to us by Spinifex in partnership with GPJ. Spinifex are global leaders in digital creative and installation projects, and we work with them regularly.

For these interactive tables for Toyota we designed and developed the software for the tables while working closely with their design, hardware and art teams.

We also implemented localization so that the attraction was ready to travel around the world.

Client Testimonial

  • Well Placed Cactus has been a great development partner. Always thinking several steps ahead, they listen to immediate project needs as well as make suggestions for efficiencies that save time and money down the road. Their solutions are smart and rock solid.

The Toyota FVC project incorporated 5 seperate installations:

  • The range table. This was a touchscreen map on the Toyota Mirai car, that allowed users to zoom into and explore the Hydrogen Fuel-Cell system
  • The mixing table. This was a interactive table that allowed users to move a metal bar over the screen to reveal how the hydrogen fuel cells are mixed.
  • The fueling station. This used a hydrogen fuel pump and display screen to educate users on how the refuel a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.
  • The safety station. This used a touch-sensitive surface that triggered educational content on table displays.
  • The fuel stack table. This was an installation that incorporated a 3D model of the Mirai and display screens which identified and pointed out product information on the model car.

This multi-aspect installation was localised into 5 languages: Japanese, English, German, Spanish and French.
