MTH Electric Trains designs and manufactures premium model trains and components. MTH Electric Trains’ Digital Command System (DCS) empowers hobbyists to control their layouts using a wireless handheld controller. MTH selected SpinDance to develop custom mobile iOS and Android applications that would replicate and extend the functionality of the handheld remote. SpinDance engineers worked closely with MTH staff to craft a user experience hobbyists would love. Together, MTH and SpinDance defined an entirely new method of interacting with trains that wasn’t possible using the original remote.

The cloud-powered system scales from handheld devices and desktops, all the way up to entire touch-screen walls. The heart of the Bluescape product is its cloud backbone. Bluescape requires exceptional uptime, and the ability to scale up new installations quickly and reliably. When the initial product’s backend tools proved to be fragile, Bluescape turned to SpinDance to develop the next generation of the cloud management tooling.
