In an attempt to bring our exhibition closer to the audience and make it easier to understand, we try to comply with modern requirements, while presenting a perspective for future technologies. Some specific implementation examples from our collection:
You can select the videos about the exhibition on a touch screen. You can search and you can keep searching or selecting while the movie plays because it can be seen not on the touch screen but on a projection screen.
Kinect-guided tree of knowledge
Test your knowledge through motion control. Your task is to harvest fruit from a tree using motion gestures. Each apple represents a question that can be answered in a number of ways. Place an apple in the appropriate basket to select an answer. Points will only be awarded for correct answers. Luckily, you can harvest apples continuously, but you mustn?t be lazy! The apples can also fall, and there?s a time limit to answer the 10 questions. Hurry up! Be the first to answer all the questions! You will find the correct answers at the exhibition.
Interactive timeline display
IBM compiled a virtual tableau summarizing the 15?20th centuries in terms of the history of calculation and mathematics as a science. This tableau, more than 4 meters in width, can be controlled, zoomed and navigated using hand gestures. There are more contents available of its relevant parts.
Currently there are two (5 more to come) touch-screen devices placed at the exhibition where visitors can learn and obtain additional knowledge about the exhibits. Each Info Point provides information about the exhibits in its vicinity and facilitates the orientation with a map. The same content is available here as via the QR codes and visitors have the possibility to see information on other exhibits or browse the Museum’s website.
Each classified item has a label displaying the name of the object, the year and country of production, and the manufacturer (where known). We also display the unique ID of the owner in the right upper corner of the label as well as a QR code in the right lower corner that gives detailed information about the exhibited item. (Free WI-FI is available in the entire exhibition space)
