A new style of interactive message board was installed in the Collider: Step inside the world’s greater experiment exhibition in Hong Kong Science Museum. Two touch-based kiosks are installed for visitors to leave messages, draw graphics and sign. A vertical display with first in first out scrolling style to show the new message at the top, the last message will be scrolled down out of screen. All messages again can be stored in the CMS (content management system) for further evaluation.

“Collider: Step inside the World’s Greatest Experiment” Special Exhibition

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is an international organisation devoted to exploring the mysteries of the universe. It has been gathering thousands of top scientists and engineers from around the world, and designed and built the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator consisting of a 27-kilometre ring of superconducting magnets, the Large Hardon Collider (LHC), located across the border between Switzerland and France. Inside the collider, scientists carry out experiments by colliding two high-energy particle beams which travel at close to the speed of light. By analysing the data obtained, scientists are able to reveal clues about how particles interact and gain an insight into the fundamental laws of nature. The special exhibition “Collider: Step inside the World’s Greatest Experiment” recreates the working environment and laboratories of the scientists at CERN, allowing visitors to enjoy an immersive experience and learn about the objective of this advanced project. They can also witness the discovery of the God Particle (Higgs boson) and gain an understanding of the fundamental theories of particle physics.
