Deloitte Digital steals the show with rubber ducks, augmented reality, and celebrity guest

With a 30’x30’ “empty” booth in the center of the show floor, a thousand yellow rubber ducks piled high in a clawfoot tub, eight rolling iPad stations, and a stand of colorful comic books beckoning readers, Deloitte Digital delighted conference attendees as the Pinnacle Plus sponsor at PTC LiveWorx 19 in Boston.

Conference attendees also enjoyed Robert Schmid’s keynote “Coffee with Mr. IoT” featuring former Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage, gained key insights during four Deloitte Digital breakout sessions, and attended several exclusive networking events throughout the week. Scroll down for more details and photos from this year’s event.

Unleashing the Smart Factory in virtual reality

Through a 30’x30’ booth experience that engaged the masses, Deloitte Digital officially launched the Virtual Factory 2.0 app, a life-sized virtual rubber duck factory built using PTC augmented reality technology. Featuring four real-world use cases—all grounded in Smart Factory client work that Deloitte is delivering today—the Virtual Factory showcased firsthand how pairing industrial assets and systems with IoT sensors and gateways can enable a digital supply network and unlock measurable value across a factory.

In addition to the booth tour, attendees could pick up a limited edition comic book with built-in Augmented Reality (AR) experiences. “The Adventures of Clarke and Dub Dub” further tells the story in a fun, interactive way of how connected systems can help transform operations with the power of real-time insights, end-to-end visibility, and scalable solutions.

LiveTALX keynote: Coffee with Mr. IoT and Adam Savage

In a standing room-only session, Robert “Mr. IoT” Schmid, Deloitte Digital’s chief IoT technologist, and Kelsey Carvell, Deloitte Consulting LLP, sat down with Adam Savage, filmmaker, actor, artist, designer, and co-host of Discovery Channel’s MythBusters. The trio explored Adam’s insatiable curiosity, his passion for uniting art and science, and his unique insights into the future of technology. Adam left the audience with a hopeful and encouraging message: “Every kid is a scientist—they want to know how the world works, and they’re paying attention to if we’re curious. Put the tools in front of them, satisfy their curiosity, and teach them the stories of science. Encourage natural curiosity."
