KFC Furiani interactive play area

KFC Furiani interactive play area, a new installation by Kylii Kids

After Nancy Laxou, the KFC Furiani interactive play area has been set up by Kylii Kids. Augmented Reality games and a tactile table are now available for little corsicans in this amazing brand new interactive play area ! 

A phygital concept for upcoming share moments

In this fully phygital concept, KFC has chosen to offer mixed, complementary, varied and collaborative experiences. In the play area, we find both a traditional tubular structure and digital games made in France by Kylii Kids.

First, on one side of the KFC Furiani interactive play area, children will have fun with their body movements thanks to the Kylii Air Totem. An augmented reality solution that turns a simple screen into a magic mirror. You can fly a plane just by lifting your arms, put on all kinds of virtual garments like magic… Or even perform a new sporting activity… In total, nearly 40 games available to play, move and stimulate the imagination of young people from Furiani.

Then, on the other side of the digital play area, children will also have the opportunity to play around the Kylii Touch Table. The Kylii Kids Table is multiplayer and allows up to 6 children to play simultaneously. More than 24 cooperative and collaborative games are available on themes both fun and smart. (ecology, fashion, science, nature…)

KFC Furiani interactive play area, a way to get ready to prepare the upcoming reopening…

For now, KFC’s restaurant in Furiani has not yet fully reopened its doors (only for take-away sales). But this project is part of the aim to attract and develop families loyalty. Since the idea of “pleasing the children” is the main motivation for family meals in a restaurant, getting ready for the return of families also means setting up a nice play area for the children.

From the order to the installation of Kylii Kids Games

Interview with Benjamin, Kylii Kids’ Technical Manager

Hey Benjamin! You are Kylii kids’ Technical Manager. Long story short, when a customer orders Kylii Kids’ products, you take over (Purchasing, logistics, interventions schedule and after-sales service).

Why did you choose to join Kylii Kids?

I have known Kylii Kids for a few years now. And, I’ve followed its growth from the very beginning. I immediately feel that the interactive children’s play areas were an avant-garde concept. I saw an incredible potential in it!

So when Johann Gobe, CEO of the company asked me to join the team, I found the idea very attractive. He was looking for an experienced and trustworthy technical manager. I was looking for the opportunity to use my knowledge and skills acquired in an innovative and fast growing company !

When did you join the company ?

B. P. – I joined Kylii Kids 4 years ago. What stuck to me when I joined the team was the wonderful welcome I received ! I discovered a dynamic team with exceptional commitment and motivation.

Moreover, it was during the large deployment of children’s interactive corners with Flunch (editor’s note. Flunch is a family F&B and more than 80 Flunch restaurants have been equipped with Kylii Kids interactive games these last years.) We can surely say that I had to catch up quickly as soon as I arrived !

Also, when I joined the team, Kylii Kids was starting to grow fast internationally. So, I had the opportunity to take some english lessons to improve this skill upon my arrival.

What is your role at Kylii Kids

B. P. – Basically, when a customer orders Kylii Kids’ products, “I take care of everything.” I mean, I am responsible for purchasing, monitoring, equipment preparation, interventions schedule, up to the delivery and installation at the customer’s establishment.

When a customer chooses to install our interactive playground solutions (Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Touch tables…), I make sure that all quality and procedure processes are respected. Clearly, the goal of my job is to make the customer happy and satisfied.

When we do our job well, “your start to have positive feedback on the market”.

That’s why we are constantly working our processes to strengthen our customer relationship. We are focused on customer care, support and technical excellence to high level quality to build a long-term and trustful relationship with our customers.

What is your most amazing deployment experience ?

B. P. – I would definitely say the “Primark Café with Disney” in Birmingham.

Installing our interactive games in the biggest Primark in the world was really challenging!

We have deployed a large part of Kylii Kids range with different and multiple interactive gaming experiences such as augmented Reality, touch tables, interactive floor and interactive individual screens .

That was a team’s project because we have personalized our games with Disney graphics. All of Kylii Kids’ skills and expertise were needed, from IT development to graphics to project management… And we can be proud of the result!

Feedback is amazing. The children’s area is always full. Clients are now lining up to enter the “Primark Café with Disney”!

Now could you tell us how you became a technical manager? What were you doing before Kylii Kids?

B. P. – I started studying technic and technology very soon, since highschool (mechanics, electronics, machining, electricity, production management). Indeed, I’ve always been a jack of all trades, I really like managing productions, bringing new ideas … I needed a job which moves all the time.

After being a technician in production management in a very versatile position for 14 years, I have then taken the post of production manager in a large workshop. This is a job during which I had the opportunity to manage a team of 25 people for large-scale event projects (Tour de France, Football World Cup …).

Apart from having the happiest customers in the world, what are you doing ?

B. P. – I try to spend as much time as possible with my wife and children. Because for me, family is really super important.

I am committed to supporting my sons in their activities (soccer or basketball training). I also try to take some time for myself, through sport, whether it’s mountain biking or going to watch soccer games.

New games on ecology and nature

Kylii Kids got through these weeks of lockdown by working on a whole range of new games. And because we think it’s essential to offer families content that is both fun and smart, the latest ones are on the ecology theme !

Discover experiences of games that address children’s environmental awareness and which are about nature, water, forests, animals or plants …

Flower Power – A new Augmented Reality game on plants

It’s time to create the most beautiful field of flowers! Little gardeners are introduced to photosynthesis by experimenting it with Flower Power, our new Augmented Reality game for children.

Once the seeds are sown, the plants need water and light! So, by waving their hands, children clear the clouds to create rain and let the sun shine. And then, plants grow under their eyes.

Ecopuzzle – A new tactile table game for kids about ecology

Water is a vital resource. But if the pieces of the puzzle are not correctly oriented, the setting remains frozen and the river no longer runs its course.

The goal of the game is to reconstruct the watercourse by orienting the puzzle pieces correctly, and bring the environment back to life.

In this collaborative and multi-player tactile table game, children and their families have to listen to each other and act as a team so that nature can take its course.

And many other interactive children’s games and new digital experiences to discover!

These games, and all the new features will soon be available on the Kylii Market for all Kylii Kids’ customers.

You’re not a customer yet ? Please contact us and ask for our catalogs with ecology games but also science, catering, travel, culture and many other themes …

And soon, we will introduce you two completely brand new Kylii Kids’ products! Stay tuned for more information 🙂
