The Sapphire System WebGL Tour is an online interactive tool for Data Centre Architects and Engineers to explore the features of Johnson Controls’ high performing fire suppression system. Previously this type of fire suppression system would be presented to customers by a salesperson in a scrolling, technical PDF or by a video presentation. The solution needed to be web based, engaging and fun to use as opposed to passive methods such as images or videos. The technology must would work on mobile, desktop and tablet.
By creating an interactive 'gamified' tool we’ve created a far more appealing experience that the user can engage with. This presents an equal amount of technical information, but in a more visual and quantifiable way.
We created 3 exterior data centre models to filter some of the selections on floor plan, then allowed people to further customize the size of the space using an interactive 3D webGL model. This also provided real time information on the efficiency of the new system over competition and older models.
From here you can access the fire room which is an interactive 3D space the user can rotate around and explore the main part of the system.
Finally you can visit the server room which is a panoramic image allow a full 360 view of the space.
