How can AR enhance storytelling in museums?

A(R)dventures is the only Mixed Reality application in a museum worldwide using haptic exhibits to trigger and control holograms.

Facts about A(R)dventure

  • 3 episodes about climate change in 3 rooms
  • 18 exhibits on 200 m²
  • 6 exhibits in each room
  • 40 Microsoft HoloLenses

The rooms in A(R)dventure

  • Every room has a different setting and therefore requires a different set of actions.
  • To enable six visitors exploring one room in parallel it is divided in six exhibits.
  • The interaction between the physical reality and the augmented reality results in a magical immersive experience that is quite unique.

Who is HIGGS?

The AR robot H.I.G.G.S. (Hyper Intelligent Guiding Gadget System) is looking for human interaction and especially tries to find the professor who disappeared for her next expedition and left him behind. The visitors soon understand their purpose as a physical helper to the robot.

A(R)dventures could also be yours!

We are working on formats and possibilities to pass on the unique expertise we have gained through this project to other science centers and museums.
