AiSolve participated in the formal opening of the Lanchester Interactive Archive in May; an interactive museum and archive collection of the inventions of Frederick Lanchester, one of Britain’s foremost creative leaders and inventor of the first all-British motor car in 1895. It has been wonderful working with Coventry University on this great initiative, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
For this project – funded by Coventry University – we have created an interactive environment using AR technology that brings to life some of Lanchester’s collections using cutting-edge technology. We have also developed four cross-platform, STEM-inspired educational games, each focused on various aspects of Lanchester’s work.
- Auto Engineer – Build your own car in Fred’s workshop and test out different engines, suspension and components to complete the challenges.
- Flight – Select the best wings, propellers and components for your plane and then pilot it through the rings to reach the finish.
- Aerodone – Welcome to the drawing board. Try and figure how different wing types change a plane’s flight path.
- Gears – Use different gears and ratios to get the right amount of power to all the components in the gear box.
