Become Bumblebee

Children’s Museum Exhibit Experience

Would a custom interactive experience be right for you?

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, the world’s largest children’s museum, reached out to VisionThree to help create a new and unique interactive experience around an exhibit for Hasbro’s Transformers.

Using Kinect technology, we transformed children of all ages into the Autobot Bumblebee. Using only their bodies to control him, their mission was to capture escaped Decepticons in a fun and quick game mode. The exhibit itself featured two separate stations running independently, with a dedicated attractor loop and quickly became one of the most well-received interactives in their history.
