Learning through multimedia exhibits
In the Esplora interactive science centre, visitors get the chance to learn through interactive multimedia exhibits. For example, visitors can learn about our solar system from the floor projection with a diameter of 5 meters. The configuration and calibration of this and similar projections was done by Ata Tech. Projection mapping, the projection of an interactive game onto a round table, is another example. Ata Tech has also installed a video wall at the entrance of this museum which is synchronized via the network with various Brightsign players.
Show control was also configured at the Esplora Science Center, to ensure that light, sound and video are synchronized and that they play at the right moments. Thus, the museum staff that start the projections when the museum opens, do not have to worry about this. There is also a ‘Space arm’ in the museum; a spotlight with ultraviolet light that can be controlled with a joystick. When the ultraviolet light shines on a text on the wall, it becomes visible. A Brightsign has also been used to simulate an earthquake on a small scale by controlling sensors and a vibration plate by a button click. In a room with murals, button clicks will light up the red, green, yellow or blue murals.
