Interactive journey through Australia�s Garden and Gardeners
Tagline: “Bloomin’ marvellous gardening advice”
LAMP Lab: December 2005
Target platforms: TV, Broadband and Mobile
Project description: This project extends the Gardening Australia program by creating online, mobile and iTV components to make Gardening Australia the leading destination for gardening reference information. The prototype allows viewers to access the show’s rich media archives of past programs, exchange information with other gardening enthusiasts and look up plant related information. Prototyped features included a searchable video and text archive, an online plant lookup database (also accessible via mobile devices), community features including a gardening wiki and a map based “your garden” gallery, an iTV layer for digital platforms, and on the lighter side, a “botanogotchi” virtual plant.
