MYRIAD2017 - Connecting the Dot Connectors

We are the #MAKERSofPlay

We're visually "connecting the dot connectors" in the VIP lounge at MYRIAD 2017. This interactive, people tracking and live projection art installation will mimmick the networking of people happening within the startup innovation and investment community underneath.

We're delighted to work with the MYRIAD team to bring this experience to the Brisbane Powerhouse.

We also teamed up with the talented chatbot company Xandra Labs, to create an Amazon Alexa based conceirge as part of the Sunshine Coast Council's exhibit at MYRIAD 2017.

We will be recording and visually displaying the answer to the question "Which dot connector are you"- helping people to categorise their place within their entrepreneurial community.
