When the holidays are around the corner, many of us have traditions that put us in a festive mood. For some it is decorating their living spaces with lights and candles, for others, it is visiting a Christmas market, and for many, it is enjoying holiday food with friends and family. At Tacton, it has become a tradition to celebrate the festive season with gingerbread houses.
Constructing and decorating a gingerbread house comes with multiple constraints and options though. It needs to be structurally sound, so the love and details you put into building it aren’t wasted by a collapsing house. Its surface must be flat to make it easy to attach decorations, and its shelf-life needs to be long enough to avoid it from decomposing prematurely.
Will the house have a chimney? How many windows should it have? Will it have a front porch? Should it come with a colored roof, candy cane fence, or gingerbread man? Will it feature maximalist décor or an understated look? With so many options and considerations, the idea of baking and building your gingerbread house can seem overwhelming. But don’t worry, Tacton has got you covered!
Last year, our experts came up with a fun prototype of a gingerbread configurator to get you in the holiday spirit. To make it super easy to use and get your gingerbread house up in no time, the team provided pre-configured Tacton Visualization Augmented Reality gingerbread houses to place within seconds. We had lots of fun internally!
This year, the Tacton gingerbread house explored some of our offices:
It met Tactonites’ pets:
