While much of the work we do involves custom software development, over the years, we’ve made a few pre-built digital exhibits available to museums. We’ve bundled these interactive exhibits with hardware packages to provide as turn-key and as economical a solution for museums as possible. Three exhibits, in particular, are designed for science museums and with this week’s Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) conference, it seems like a good time to share more information about them.

If you are interested in learning more about these exhibits, feel free to reach out to our sales group also a few Ideum team members will be at the ASTC conference, so let us know if you want to connect!

The EM Spectrum exhibit is a multiuser exhibit that introduces visitors to all types of electromagnetic radiation. Over the past century, advances in technology and imaging have allowed scientists to peer deeply into the non-visible areas of the electromagnetic spectrum. Viewing an object in different wavelengths reveals much about its composition and the EM spectrum itself. Ideum sells this exhibit bundled with the Ideum Pano multitouch table which has dual 4K UHD displays.

This exhibit can be found at the German Rontgen Museum, Museum of Science and Industry, MIM (Chile), Science World (Vancouver), and Petrosains Discovery Centre (Malaysia), and it will soon have an installation in the Middle East.

Digital Dinos is a completely touchless projection-based exhibit developed by Ideum and the Las Vegas Natural History Museum (LVNHM). Playfully drawn and animated, the exhibit contains five different dinosaur species, each of them reconstructed with scientific accuracy. In fact, many of the dinosaurs were discovered by the LVNHM’s own paleontologist. The exhibit runs on a single 4K UHD projector and uses a single Microsoft Azure motion device for interaction.

The Brain Odyssey is a “fantastic voyage”-like exploration of the human brain, the most complex structure known to science. The experience starts outside the brain with an overview of its lobes and fissures and then dives ever deeper into the brain’s internal structures. At the final level, viewers explore the microscopic world of synapses and neurotransmitters, the chemical messengers that transmit signals between neurons. Developed with Ideum and 3D medical imagery specialists, Intervoke.

The software is available in a variety of different configurations. New installations in the United States and another in Europe are in the works. Contact us for more information about any of these exhibits or custom software or hardware.
