Kleenheat

Prompted by the end of Telstra’s 2G mobile network, Kleenheat needed to replace an ageing logictics system. Seeking a team that had experience in designing and building elegant mobile solutions, Kleenheat approached Hatchd and Adapptor to help reimagine an app for their drivers to integrate with existing internal systems. We worked with Kleenheat to rapidly build an app in time for the decommissioning of the old system. This enterprise app included:

  • integration with Kleenheat’s systems to manage real time delivery,
  • operated on an intrinsically safe device to work around hazardous material,
  • integration with in-cab printer and a tank flow meter,
  • and the ability to work offline for when the device is out of range of a mobile network.

Grand Cinemas

When you want to see a movie, there’s nothing better than having your own concierge to find the best session, book you tickets, and usher you quickly past box office queues straight to your seat. So when Grand Cinemas approached us to build their next app, that’s exactly what we did. It’s like a box office in your pocket, including features like browsing movies, watching trailers, viewing sessions, selecting Gold Lounge seats, buying tickets, and avoiding queues. Other features include:

  • see movie sessions nearest you,
  • reminders when movies you’re interested in hit the theatre,
  • a Kids’ section to quickly find a movie for the family,
  • and sign in with your membership to receive first rate benefits.

Available from Google Play and the iTunes App Store.

QLDTraffic

Queensland’s Department of Transport and Main Roads wanted to revamp their old 131 940 service. Seeing the great work we’d done with the Western Australian Government, TMR approached Adapptor to lean on our skills.

Data pumped straight from TMR provides real-time state-wide information on road conditions, like incidents and hazards, closures and restrictions, roadworks and special events. The app also provides access to cameras that relay real-time traffic imagery. The best bits:

  • Personalised push notifications as things happen on commuters’ favourite routes and places.
  • Audio announcements when a driver wants to be alerted without needing to touch their phone.

App available now at Google Play and iTunes.

Perth Airport

Travelling to and through an airport can be stressful. With this in mind, Perth Airport sought to partner with an agency to help build a world class mobile app to help people undertake that journey. The mobile app assists this goal by providing key information at the right time and place. It includes:

  • Arrival/Departure information
  • Flight Tracking
  • Travel Time and Incident Reporting for the drive to the airport
  • In-App Booking for Parking
  • Retail Offers
  • Weather Reports for flight destinations
  • Push Notifications for updates to flight details
  • Apple Watch functionality to make it quick and easy to see information on the go

Transperth Assist

Transperth’s recently launched state of the art Busport came with a unique issue. The facility uses a Dynamic Stand Management System (DSMS) to automatically allocate bus stands on-the-fly. However, people with disabilities may not have been able to quickly determine the correct stand in time to catch a departing bus.

Transperth approached Adapptor and Hatchd to work with a range of stake-holders, including organisations representing disability organisations, to prototype and develop a mobile app that would meet mobile accessibility standards (WCAG 2.0 and other W3C/WAI guidelines).

The result is a simple mobile app (Android and iOS) that uses a phone’s accessibility features, like voice over to announce bus stand allocation, and integrates with the DSMS for real-time updates.

Sphero BB-8 Hologram

Ever since Princess Leia made her desperate plea to Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Star Wars fan collective has wished they too could send messages in holographic form.

Brought to life by Rocket Comms and Adapptor, Sphero helped celebrate the Sydney launch of Star Wars The Force Awakens with a BB-8 Hologram Zone. Using a Kinect camera to detect participants, record their video and remove them from the background in real-time, the app uses custom GPU accelerated code to add effects in on the fly to create a virtual hologram. Several scenes are then merged together live to give people the experience of being in the scene with BB-8, having created their own personal message to aid the Resistance.

HBF Fitness

HBF’s ‘Run for a Reason’ event is one of WA’s most popular fun runs, with tens of thousands of people walking and running for charity every year. HBF engaged us to create a service that would motivate and assist people with training for the event. We conceptualised and built an integrated solution that delivered personalised training programs and rewarded users with points. Point scores were converted to charity dollars, donated to the person’s chosen charity. This enabled app users to help others whilst helping themselves. Key features include:

  • Recommended training schedule based on fitness assessment.
  • Integration with popular wearable devices (fitbit, jawbone & runkeeper) to keep track of steps.
  • A scoring logic to reward participants for healthy activities completed and donate to charity.
  • Card based delivery of personalised health tips and notifications.

Curtin Companion

Thousands of students come to Curtin University from outside Australia; a daunting process for young adults, especially for those who’ve never left their own country. Curtin saw an opportunity for a service aimed at helping these potential international students with their move. The pre-departure companion app provides access to a vast array of useful information and holds students’ hands through the entire migration process, from accepting their offer to being on-campus and getting the most out of O-Week.
Key features include:

  • A dynamic task tracker to help students prepare for the move down-under.
  • Marketing automation with personalised to-do items.
  • Integrated ATDW events feed for an always updated list of things-to-do.
  • A pre-application enquiry system to capture leads.

HBF Fitness for Glass

HBF runs free fitness sessions for its members around WA. Its fitness instructors use an internal system to check schedules and check people in to the event. Managing checkins, being aware of people’s conditions, monitoring the session, helping people learn activities, and keeping everything running on time is a big task. So Adapptor helped HBF build a Google Glass app for an in-house trial allowing trainers to manage the process and provide a more personalised workout in a group fitness setting…hands-free. See the trial in action here.

Key features include:
· Integrated fitness schedule with intelligent stopwatch.
· Member checkin with code scanning.
· Integration with HBF’s Fitness system to check registrations and participant’s health conditions.
· Real-time weather information.

Steel Blue Boots

When your job can mean you could accidentally walk through toxic chemicals, encounter live electrical wires, or drop a sharp implement on your toes, you want to make sure you pick the right type of footwear. That’s why Steel Blue make sure they have new cutting edge products, technology and customer service.

Steel Blue enlisted Collaboraid and Adapptor to create an iPad app to make sure that choosing the right boot is as simple as answering a few questions. Available in select stores around the country, the iPad app presents 7 simple questions, and then recommends a couple of boots right for you. Alternatively you can browse through dozens of items using a simple cover-flow design, and drill down into the features when you find the right boot. Love what you see, you can then alert staff and try on a pair.

Right Move Perth

It pays to know before you go. Right Move was designed to show the people of Perth what’s happening on the roads before they set off; accidents as they’re reported, planned roadworks, signal faults, school holidays, bad weather, sports events and even natural disasters. Built as an extensible platform, there are plans to include new data in the near future, because an app should always be a journey and not a destination. The best bits:

  • Playing matchmaker. We brought together data from MRWA, Transperth, Google and BoM into one useful app.
  • Reporting the ripple effect. We wrote gnarly code to estimate the ‘geometric impact’ of incidents.
  • Smart calendar stuff. For when you can’t be late for ‘that’ meeting but are oblivious to the roadworks you’re about to encounter.

Department of Fisheries

The Department of Fisheries WA is responsible for conserving, developing and managing the fish and aquatic resources of WA, by managing and licensing commercial and recreational fishing. Traditionally commercial fishers manually complete complex forms each time they fish, which resulted in a variety of issues and errors. To streamline the process Adapptor worked with Birchman Group to develop an iPad and iPhone app, so a fisher could complete trip details on the go. Key features include:

  • Offline access for access even when at sea.
  • Auto-completing forms to help complete faster.
  • Integration with the Department’s Fish Eye server to submit trip details for central management.

Barbie Dream Closet App

In 1956 Ruth Handler invented the Barbie Doll. Little girls (and the occasional little boy) the world over have been playing dress ups with her creation ever since.

To engage a new generation of Australian Barbie lovers – and in conjunction with our friends at Gun – we developed ‘Barbie’s Dream Closet’, a digital installation that had little girls queuing up in Westfield malls. Using a custom made Kinect App developed in house at Adapptor, girls could select from a range of Barbie’s clothes and dress up in a ‘magic mirror’. Happy with their outfit, kids could strike a pose and print the resulting photo; proud mums could even share to Barbie’s Facebook.

Thousands of next-gen Barbie lovers have engaged enthusiastically with the app, additionally Barbie has received widespread media coverage including a feature by Channel 9’s Morning Show.

SmartClaim for HIF

HIF, a fast growing not-for-profit health fund, recently approached Adapptor with a mobile application idea. They wanted to offer members an innovative and convenient way of making ancillary claims via their smart-phones.

The rapid growth in smartphone adoption means that the majority of Australians now carry a camera on them 24/7. Using this insight we developed an application that allows members to fill in some details, photograph their receipts and submit the claim over the Internet. The “SmartClaim” solution includes a custom built, cloud based server application that verifies claims and passes them into HIF’s ancillary claims process. SmartClaim is free and available for both iPhone and Android devices.

Switch the Future – Kinect App

303 asked us to develop a ‘physical effort detection’ application for Synergy’s ‘Switch the Future‘ campaign activation. The creative concept required us to develop an app that could use a Kinect camera to detect a user’s running movements and translate it to the speed at which a native Chuditch ran on its wheel. As the Chuditch began to run the user was shown images of common household devices they would be powering based on their current effort. At the end of a 30 second game each user received a score and an indication of what their total effort would have powered in their home. The application was built using OpenFrameworks, libFreenect, and a Kinect camera.

Murdoch University ‘Course Finder’ App

Murdoch University asked us to port their web based ‘Course Finder’ tool to an Enterprise iPad application. Working with a planning team from hatchd, the app was scoped, wire-framed and built over an eight week period. Launched in time for the recent Open Day the app was used by a team of uni ‘Ambassadors’ to help prospective students find courses of interest. The application integrates with the University’s web CMS, hooks into their lead capture system yet remains fully functional whilst offline, only downloading course data and uploading new leads when an Internet connection becomes available.

‘Kinecting’ with the brightest minds

The Brand Agency asked us to develop an Augmented Reality application for Curtin University’s ‘Make Tomorrow Better‘ roadshow. The Brand Agency’s creative concept required us to develop an application that could use an MS Kinect camera to detect a user’s head and replace it with a ‘Brightest Mind’ 3D light bulb. Users could see their ‘augmented self’ on a large LCD screen, make gestures to switch through different light bulbs, take a photo, print and share to the Curtin University’s facebook page. The application was built using OpenFrameworks, Freenect, an MS Kinect and a custom developed facebook app.
