In the vibrant heart of Sydney, a momentous occasion unfolded – the inauguration of the Female FIFA Village. Serving as a tribute to the invaluable contributions of women in the realm of football, this event served as a dynamic tapestry, weaving together a narrative of a rich and often overlooked history. Recognising the significance of immortalising this impactful showcase, the event organisers entrusted us at 42 interactive with the pivotal task of conducting a Matterport scan.

The Temporary Museum

At the heart of the Female FIFA Village, there was this captivating temporary museum that beautifully celebrated the history of women in FIFA. Realizing how crucial it was to cherish and protect this legacy, the thoughtful event organisers chose to use Matterport scanning. This technology allowed them to create a virtual replica of the museum, ensuring that the essence of this rich history could be preserved for all time. What's even more wonderful is that this virtual archive opens the doors of the exhibition to a global audience, warmly welcoming enthusiasts from around the world to experience its magnificence.

The Scanning Process

Scanning the temporary museum turned out to be a breeze, all thanks to the impressive abilities of Matterport technology. The system effortlessly snagged every nuanced detail of the exhibits, guaranteeing a true-to-life representation of the artifacts and displays.

Yet, the real head-scratcher emerged when it came to capturing the interactive elements and running videos within the museum. Traditional scanning methods usually hit a snag with dynamic features, but lo and behold, Matterport's innovative features came to the rescue, providing a clever solution to our challenge.

The Scanning Challenges

Matterport's Mate Tag feature turned out to be a real game-changer when it came to tackling the hurdles of capturing interactivity and running videos. The organisers cleverly utilised Mate Tags, strategically placing them to create interactive hotspots within the virtual museum. Now, visitors can simply click on these tags to dive into a treasure trove of additional information, videos, and interactive elements, making the whole experience more engaging and immersive.

It's a dedication to allowing upcoming football enthusiasts to appreciate and learn from the impactful journey of women in the beautiful game.

The Result

The fusion of thoughtful curation and cutting-edge technology has given rise to a virtual archive that transcends geographical boundaries. The Female FIFA Village, now accessible to enthusiasts worldwide, stands as a testament to the harmonious blend of history, technology, and a shared passion for the beautiful game.
