Google Binoculars

Iconic Form. Modern Teleportation Device.

Building off of the Google Web Lab Teleporters, Google wanted to create a unique experience for the Sydney Opera House’s 40th Anniversary. Tellart created the solution incorporating the iconic Tower Optical Binoculars, but giving it a modern digital twist. The eyepieces show you a Google Street View from a different UNESCO World Heritage Site. Rotating and tilting the binoculars allows you to “look around” the other site. The coin lever changes scenes.
