Mixed Interaction in Museal Environment
In the context of the museum of natural history of Toulouse, a sepcific topic has been identified, for which interactive exhibits might be extremely useful to help the museum convey a set of message, knowledge, information to the visitors. This topic is the new classification of species: cladistic
Trees are used to represent evolution of criteria and thus groups of species. The goal of this project is to provide the visitors with a set of interactive techniques to manipulate this tree and better apprehend the notion of group, common ancester, proximity between groups, limitations of the previous taxonomies, etc.
To do so and also favorise the user's experience in a physical environment, we promote theuse of mixed interacive systems. In this project MIS will thus be designed, prototyped, implemented and developped.
Very soon, pictures and demos ...
