Christmas Lectures with The Royal Institution

Dating back to 1825, The Christmas Lectures have a history spanning nearly 2 centuries. Pufferfish are proudly supporting the 2020 Christmas Lectures, and can’t wait to see our solutions in action! Photo Credit: Paul Wilkinson Photography.

At Pufferfish, we believe in the power of data, of education, of storytelling, and of giving strong context to otherwise complex information. This year we were thrilled to be invited to support the BBC Christmas Lecture Series in partnership with The Royal Institution, and to be part of an historical television show that stands for the same principles. Education, science, data, global information, and engaging family fun.

Started by Michael Faraday in 1825, and now broadcast on national television every year, the Christmas Lectures are the UK's flagship science series. This year, The BBC and The Royal Institution wanted some dynamic centre pieces for the Christmas Lecture Series.

They wanted something unforgettable, something tactile, fun and intuitive for their audience; and our solutions are exactly that. They are commanding centre pieces, digital campfires, and unforgettable pieces of technology that awaken the senses.


Our PufferSphere® solutions are our large-scale solutions. They transform content and complex data, and create compelling, unforgettable stories. They punch 13,000 Lumens and 4K projection technology, and come with integrated audio and our licensed Presenter software. Whether it be for a television show, a permanent exhibition, a corporate event or otherwise, our PufferSphere® solutions revolutionize the possibilities of communication.

Our PufferTouch® solutions might be smaller in scale, but they are our brightest and most powerful solutions. Offering intuitive multi-touch screens, these 4K solutions are the only touch enabled spherical displays in the world. From stationary solutions to mobile solutions, the PufferTouch® has a reputation across the globe for its dynamic, UHD image quality.

Education should be fun - It should trigger interest, emotion and imagination.

Pufferfish specialise in curating these moments through tactile, gamified experiences.

We make digital real.

Make sure to tune in for the 2020 Christmas Lectures, December 28th, 29th and 30th on BBC Four at 8pm, to see our world-renowned technology in action; and we’d like to thank WindFall Films and The Royal Institution for their ongoing support!
