Interactive Bob the Builder children's exhibit uses OxBlue high-resolution time-lapse footage to show children the dynamics of construction and how things are made.

This has been a unique opportunity to use our technology to educate and inspire children in a very visual way.

The mission of TechnoFrolics is to bring beauty, excitement and playfulness to science and technology. The company’s patented technology enables the creative, interactive exploration of any video content, including high-resolution time-lapse footage. However, when the company was searching for high-resolution time-lapse construction footage, they found a lack of readily available material. That was until they learned about the capabilities of OxBlue's extreme resolution construction camera service.

OxBlue's unique technology is used by construction contractors and owners to create a visual archive of virtually every moment of construction. The company's technology can also be used to produce stunning time-lapse videos of projects for presentation and detailed analysis of project performance. OxBlue's high-resolution time-lapse photography has now been combined with TechnoFrolics Spin Browser™ technology to create an exciting new traveling exhibit aimed at educating children.

“We’re excited to show everyone just how creative you can be with our time-lapse construction camera system,” said Chandler McCormack, President of OxBlue.” OxBlue is well-known within the construction industry for its high-resolution time-lapse image capabilities, which are used to help companies understand new ways to improve their construction projects. “This has been a unique opportunity to use our technology to educate and inspire children in a very visual way,” states McCormack.

Known as Bob the Builder, the display teaches children about the dynamics of construction and how things are made. Visitors to the exhibit can watch time-lapse video of various construction projects. They can speed up or slow down the videos with Spin Browser™ video explorer, an interactive technology developed by TechnoFrolics.

The display recently ran through September 2011 at the Miami Children’s Museum. According to Mike Neufeld, Director of Exhibitions at the museum, future plans include a “construction zone” at the museum, a permanent exhibit that will include a bulldozer mock-up that enables a child to sit in the bulldozer, view a monitor and view time-lapse construction videos. “This is a really unique adaptation of our construction cameras, and we're inspired,” said McCormack.
