Recent Projects

We’ve been building our own apps and connected environments for a while - that’s where the inspiration for our edge platform came from. Check out some of our recent projects that leverage our open-source and enterprise tools. Check back for full case studies on these projects soon!

Flying Axes
Business operations & customer engagement
Our edge platform powers Flying Axes, Louisville’s only indoor axe-throwing venue. This project utilizes custom-built applications for score control and analytics, our open-source services and some of our helpful enterprise tools. With this edge system, Flying Axes staff can more easily coach games, calculate the overall utilization of the venue, and make informed operational decisions about staffing and equipment.
Peabody Essex Museum
mixed-media exhibit installation
Forest Giant has partnered with the Peabody Essex Museum on their upcoming exhibition Ocean Liners: Glamour, Speed, and Style. Our edge platform powers a Distributed Scriptable Theater Environment for part of the exhibition, allowing lighting, screens, and sounds to work together to tell the story of fine dining on ocean liners in the mid-19th and 20th centuries.
The Magic Forest
product / advertising exhibit
We created The Magic Forest exhibit to showcase the power of our edge platform at the 44th annual MCN Conference. The exhibit is composed of seven Raspberry Pi computers running our platform, a motion sensor, speakers, a monitor, lighting elements, and stylized foliage connected to motorized servos. The exhibit showcases how screens, physical elements, sound, and lights can all be incorporated into one unified, edge-powered experience.
