US Air Force Presents: The Hangar
Wildlife teamed up with GSD&M and the U.S. Air Force to launch “The Hangar”, a touring mobile exhibit comprised of dual semi-trailers with six cutting edge interactive experiences.
Visitors engage with an AR app centered around a massive F-16 jet engine before moving to pressure-sensing LED platforms with directional audio briefings. Using Leap Motion hand-tracking technology, users repair the on-screen hydraulics of a V-22 Osprey. Adjacent, two replica F-16 cockpits feature Microsoft HoloLens with spatially mapped holographic 3D elements and HUD to guide users to run diagnostics on the aircraft’s cockpit avionics controls via connected buttons and switches. A pressure-sensing, digitally connected lug nut lets users perform maintenance on a C-130 tire, synced in real-time with LED's and screen animations to let visitors compete for the top score of the day. “The Hangar” concludes by putting users on the Flight Line of an F-35 jet, using gesture-recognition to let visitors marshall the aircraft to the runway while feeling the intensity of takeoff with embedded rumble mats.
