By | Exhibition, Museum, News | No Comments

“A History of the World in 100 Objects”, jointly organised by the Hong Kong Heritage Museum and the British Museum (BM), tells the story of human civilization by using 100 objects selected from the encyclopedic collections of the BM. The stories behind the objects reveal how mankind in various areas and cultures shared similar aspirations in different aspects, providing visitors a new perspective about the world we live.

SenMedia is pleased to design and develop the interactive wall as the last station of the exhibition. The 8-meter wall with two 4K  projectors displays the 100 objects in a dynamic scene. By touching on the projections of the exhibits, dazzling animations would appear to indicate the time and space of the objects with a timeline marking different dynasties of China. The large-scaled interactive wall marks a perfect end of visitor experience. Besides, we developed the QR code system, visitors can enjoy the further information by easily using their mobile devices.

The Grand Weddings of the Qing Emperors has finally made its grand debut in the Hong Kong Heritage Museum on November 30th. Visitors hauled themselves from the crowd to get their hands on the interactive wall that displays the rituals of Qing dynasty for a thrilling experience.

Developed by Sengital, the interactive wall reveals the grand ceremony on a jaw dropping 4.6 meters panel that delivers a captivating experience unparalleled by any other rivals. Hovering their hands over the 4K video projection, visitors may activate descriptions to enhance their understanding of the specific person or ritual.

A member of the team in Sengital suggested that the interactive technology employed can be adapted for much wider applications depending on the nature of the exhibit, such as performing sequences of interactions in a controlled environment including sound and light. He is therefore looking forward to even more exciting projects in the future.

The exhibition was launched with a guided tour mobile app that was also developed by Sengital. Visitors may follow the ritual chronologically for an immersive tour by taking advantage of real time positioning.
