NHS Change Day Actions Map

As part of the NHS Change Day 2015 project, a requirement was to provide a visual representation of the actions which had be collected through the website and their distribution across the country to show the regional activity of change that was happening

Postcode information is captured as part of the user registration process which is then converted into geographical longitude and latitude coordinates for representation on the 3D map. The real-time action information along with the geographical coordinates are retrieved from the server using REST service and the locations represented by green light bulbs land on the country's surface.

The UK map model is static a object with textures containg baked shadows and ambient occlusion. The bulbs are simple planes with lightbulb texture with a transparent region around it's edge. Each individual bulb is created as a particle in the Away3D particle system and has a custom billboarding control to ensure that it faces the camera at all times however remains perpendicular to the surface if the UK map. The bulbs and trails are positioned randomly vertically above a specific height to allow them to fly down to the surface. Once the bulb hits the surface a small 'blast' area expands at the point of contact.

As this applicaiton was to function across both desktop and mobile/tablet devices, OpenFL/Haxe was used to create a Flash Player version for desktop web and a HTML5/WebGL version for mobiles/tablets as Flash is not available for these platforms.

Key developments:

  • OpenFL/Haxe used to target Flash and WebGL
  • Away3D OpenFL port used for all 3D
  • Away3D OpenFL Particle system utilised with custom Particle States/Nodes
  • Baked shadows and ambient occlusion on textures

NHS Change Day 2014

Simply put, NHS Change Day is a grassroots movement that asks anyone who engages with the NHS to make a change for the better, and to then share what they have done to inspire others.

NHS Change Day served to harness the passion, drive, commitment and innovation that we see every single day from staff. It used the power of shared purpose to give us the boost to challenge the status quo and try something simple but different to improve patient care.

The goal for the second NHS Change Day (2014) was to surpass the previous total pledges of 189,000 and reach 500,000. By the 31st March 2014 a huge total 702,132 of pledges were made, clearly exceeding expectation and went on to reach over 800,000 pledges for 2014.

Key developments:

  • Developed on PHP using MySQL.
  • Responsive web design to current standards whilst maintaining backwards compatibility with IE7/8 (standard PC build for the NHS).
  • User registration, session management, personalisation, pledge logging/updating/deleting.
  • AJAX forms handling
  • Custom developed CMS for managing content, users and pledges.

Nike Team Headwear - Hat designer

RENDR is a partner-driven, full-spectrum digital solutions firm, applying its knowledge in both strategy and development to craft potent outcomes to help fulfill the potential behind client goals.

Nike Team Sports, the leader in innovative products that serve the athlete, partnered with Paramount Apparel, a leader in innovative headwear manufacturing since 1929, to provide the most dynamic custom headwear program in the industry.

The Nike Team headwear web-based flash application, provides an interactive 3D environment for customisation of the Nike headwear product line. Away Studios through Geepers Interactive Ltd. provided development solutions for texture material management and rendering through custom shaders, refined the workflow for model production and interaction with the 3D models allowing placement, rotation and scaling of logos and name drops.

Key developments:

  • Optimisation of textures to reduce file sizes by taking advantage of repeating patterns.
  • Combination of textures, tiled and not tiled with normal mapping to reconstruct highly detailed materials whilst minimising texture overhead
  • Mouse interaction responding to 'hotspot' areas on the models when logos and name drops can be placed and manipulated directly on the 3D model.
  • Material/texture memory management allowing materials to be loaded and unloaded as the headwear is customised.

Primal Pictures - Anatomy Viewer

The Anatomy Viewer module for Primal Pictures provides a real time environment to view extremely high-resolution 3D anatomy models. Explore the human body by rotating and zooming in to areas of interest. Selectively hide/reveal or make x-ray/opaque any of the anatomical structures or even whole groups such as muscles, vessel systems, organ systems, etc. Highlight any items in-situ or isolate them in context to the rest of the structures.

Away Studios employing Greg Caldwell of Geepers Interactive Ltd as the sole developer, provided 3D development expertise and workflow advice on the project, and delivered multiple integration points to give the option for the module to be used as part of an AIR application or from within a web page. The real-time graphics take advantage of the latest Stage3D GPU accelerated APIs of the Flash Player, accessed through the Away3D library.

Features include:

  • Extensive API to define & represent anatomical model data, interact with and respond to user events.
  • Custom control over rendering properties.
  • Embedded user interface for model navigation and interaction.
  • Tooltips for anatomy identification.
  • Global system visibility panel – show & hide structural groups.
  • Customs GPU shaders for model representation.
