Copper Recovery

Featured Project

ECR KApunda Cloudtour

The Historic Kapunda Copper Mine originally operated between 1844 and 1916 and played a significant role in the history and development of South Australia.  Environmental Copper Recovery (ECR), together with the CSIRO and the University of Adelaide, are investigating the viability of recovering the remaining copper from the mine.  They are researching the potential to use In-Situ Recovery (ISR) to extract the copper.  Unlike many traditional mining methods, ISR has very limited visual impact, but most people do not know much about the method.

ECR was looking for an interactive and informative way to show a wide range of stakeholders and interested parties what the potential ISR site might look like at Kapunda.  The solution needed to deliver key points of information to all users, but also allow people to explore different parts of the site themselves.

The custom CloudTour begins with an introductory video which provides an overview of the project and delivers key messages to the user.  From the menu, users can choose to explore the ‘View from above’, ‘At ground level’ or ‘Below the surface’.  When viewing from above, the user can see the potential ISR trial locations and then see a rendered image of the trial.  Another video, ‘Copper ISR Explainer’ was also created to explain what is happening below the surface during the trial.  The tour is compatible with desktop, mobile and tablets.  An offline app was created for ECR to use when at expos, meetings or when on the road with restricted internet.

Featured Project

Great Southern Rail
AR Experience

Operating across Australia, The Ghan and Indian Pacific trains take travellers to parts of Australia that no other holiday can match. The Great Southern Rail team wanted a way to showcase these incredible experiences to visitors at trade shows and events. Using augmented reality, Lateral Vision was able to simulate the trains travelling across Australia, letting users view the experience on a tabletop in front of them using the Microsoft Hololens.

The Hololens allows imagery to be mapped onto surfaces, giving users the ability to move around the simulation in front of them. Satellite imagery was used for the various environments, adding height and displacement to give the perspective of a 3D landscape from a 2D plane. Accurate, fully optimised, low poly models of the trains were created to bring the whole project to life, including small texture details such as scratches and accumulated dirt. Lastly, a video and voice over tell the story of the journey, as the 3D models, terrain and environment update along the way

The Great Southern Rail AR Experience is a unique and engaging way for users to discover some of the experiences on offer from Journey Beyond.

Tonsley Innovation District virtual tour

The Tonsley Innovation District virtual tour is used to show the new and exciting redevelopment on the old Mitsubishi site in the southern suburbs of Adelaide. One challenge with the ongoing redevelopment is to explain and showcase the precinct in a way that is as innovative and unique as the businesses and projects within it. Initially, the shared vision was to capture a virtual tour for Google Street View. Following the success of that project, Renewal SA returned and the vision was expanded to build an interactive site CloudTour and in particular, to engage an international audience during a delegation tour to Europe with custom branded Google Cardboard headsets.

The custom CloudTour begins with an aerial panorama which captures and gives context to the entire site by incorporating map pins and a menu for navigation. Using our 360-degree rendered images, users can view future plans of the precinct (Tenancy 4 and Ageing Well Living Lab). The Tonsley Innovation Precinct corporate video is incorporated into the tour (MAB – Central Forest). 

The tour is compatible with desktop, mobile and Google Cardboard headsets. Custom branding is used throughout to match their brand guide. It will be continually updated as the precinct grows and changes.

Archery VR

As Inaugural Entrepreneur in Residence for the State Library of South Australia, Lateral Vision has worked closely with the library education and public program team to design, build and deliver a custom virtual reality archery game. School students and visitors to the library can engage with the traditional Chinese teachings of archery in an immersive VR experience.

The State Library of South Australia is host to the One Mountain, One River, One Sage: Treasures from the Shandong Library exhibition.  The exhibition tells the stories of Shandong Province through rare pieces including ancient books, calligraphy tools, press plates and stone rubbings.  To complement the exhibition, the library has a series of education activations around the teachings of Confucius, including the skill of archery and its role in developing focus and concentration.

The user is transported to a 3D modelled environment which is based closely on features from Shandong Province.  After a short tutorial, the player has 2 minutes to aim and fire as many archery bows into circular targets as possible.  The location, UI/UX, modelled environment and music were all carefully selected with the assistance of the State Library and their Chinese partners for the exhibition.

For this exhibition, we have chosen to develop for the Oculus Go headset.  This headset offers an immersive VR game experience, without the need for a PC connection.
