Our CEO Will Tamblyn and CTO Gavin Smith were lucky enough to be able to attend the opening of the new MOD museum in Adelaide, South Australia last night. MOD. is Australia’s leading future-focused museum, provoking new ideas at the intersection of science, art and innovation. The MOD museum is all about inspiring learning through futuristic and engaging experiences, and we are lucky enough to have a Voxon VX1 in the museum as part of an exhibit around pain…
Here’s a few photos from the opening night…
Voxon at the MOD.
The Voxon VX1 is set up in the Arcade Room and the interactive experience is called “Feeling Human. How do you know the pain you feel is real?”… The VX1 has a custom enclosure fitted with a cubic glass cover over the top of the volumetric display (different than the usual dome that comes with the VX1 as standard) and the 3D space mouse has been mounted to the front of the enclosure.
Let us know what you think of the display. Oh, and make sure you discover the electric chair 🙂
One of the highlights of the museum is definitely the Science on a Sphere. The MOD is home to Australia’s first Science on a Sphere, a six-foot, three-dimensional video projection that can show entire planets – and much more. Created by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), it’s a jaw-dropping piece of technology, using computers and projectors to display planetary data onto a room-sized sphere. Interactive and unique, Science on a Sphere invites you to experience an astronaut’s view, without leaving the ground.
If you would like to see an amazing showcase of science and technology get along to the MOD museum in Adelaide and of course make sure you check out the Voxon VX1 3D volumetric display in action. Thanks go out to MOD museum for inviting us to the opening.
