Rutherford Appleton Laboratories

Interactive Models

Brief/Challenges

Over a period of two years we were approached, by several individual research facilities within the Rutherford Appleton Laboratories, to produce animated, interactive models demonstrating their work, equipment and roles.  The models were to be used as promotional and educational devices to show both the processes involved in these complex and ground-breaking technologies, as well as highlighting the possibilities for use of these facilities by other research groups. 

Commission

Paragon Creative were commissioned to design, build and install various models including: 

For Diamond Light Source, we constructed a promotional and educational model of their Synchrotron Radiation Facility which featured an animated LED lighting sequence that helps to illustrate the operational process of their particle accelerator. The self-contained model display unit also featured an interactive touch screen which further enhanced the visitor experience.

The model we built of the HYPER facility was for the Energy Research Unit. This model was designed to be taken to various industry trade shows and conventions and was built as a user-operated LED animation with multiple function settings to allow it to be integrated within an orchestrated presentation. The HYPER facility is at the forefront of nuclear fusion technology with its aim of understanding and harnessing the potential of hydrogen nuclear fusion as a new energy source.
