Scots tech firm reveals involvement in Amazon Prime series

A SCOTS tech firm has revealed its involvement with the team behind a new Amazon Prime dating series.

Digital display company, Pufferfish, has played a role in the team which has created Amazon Prime’s new celestial dating show, Cosmic Love. 

One of the Edinburgh-based company’s products, the PufferSphere, has a role throughout the Amazon Original series airing now on the global streaming service.   

At the heart of the new dating concept is a mystical guide, the Astro Chamber, which helps four individuals navigate their search for the perfect spouse via astrological matchmaking. 

The PufferSphere features as a core element in the Amazon Prime dating show.

The chamber is designed and built by video production service company, RabCup, featuring astrological-themed content from projection specialists Go2 Productions Inc. 

The set features a “floating” version of a PufferSphere digital display with a 1200mm spherical screen – invented, designed and created in Pufferfish’s Edinburgh studio, and shipped to the show’s creators in Malibu, California. 

Cosmic Love’s set creators desired an element that the show’s participants could interact with, but which wouldn’t cast shadows on the set, to maintain the “immersive experience”. 

Pufferfish sat that the PufferSphere achieves that through the utilisation internal projection. 

The entertainment sector is a key growth platform for Pufferfish, alongside corporate communications, museums, planetariums, and other visitor attractions, and educational institutions. 

The company works with partners in these sectors and builds spherical digital displays that deliver a multi-sensory experience, combining sound, vision, data, and touch. 

Elaine Van Der Berg, CEO of Pufferfish, said: “Working with RabCup to design an Amazon Prime product, has been an incredible experience for all involved. 

“Our interactive display technology and the production concept were perfectly compatible. 

“We always knew our multi-sensory technology could do a lot – but matchmaking is a new feature for us to add to our list!” 

AJ Freysteinson, creative director at RabCup, said: “RabCup has worked with Pufferfish for over 10 years on a variety of projects. 

“Constantly running with the demanding timelines and creative needs of our clients, Pufferfish has been there on time and with the solutions we need for our projects. 

“Their technology has helped us be creative, while their support makes all things possible. 

“It was a pleasure to work with the team again on this project and we look forward to continuing the journey.”

Pufferfish has previously worked with NASA, Google and the BBC, and is currently focused on accessing new markets. 

The company recently launched a further £600k funding round to support its scale-up ambitions.
