WATCHOUT helps create a world where kid’s can be heroes
Pip’s Island is a children’s attraction in New York City that combines innovative puppetry, digital animation, cutting-edge technology, and live actors to create an immersive theatrical experience for kids and families. Projection designer Rocco DiSanti created projection platforms in which video assists the explorers as they enact the storytelling.Media display is run through Dataton WATCHOUT. Since there are multiple groups going through the show at different stages simultaneously, each of the four WATCHOUT clusters in the show operates independently, triggered by a show controller.
“It’s just the display machines getting commands. So you just turn on the rack, and it’s ready to go. It’s a pretty slick system.”
