Unique Museum Display offers Virtual Hands On Interaction with Dangerous Animals

 We've seen interactive displays using a computer and a projector, but the "Dangerous Australian" table takes the interactivity to a new level. The table is designed as a hands on (more or less) activity for children and adults at the Australian Museum. 

…Visitors can interact directly with these ‘Dangerous Australians’ and enjoy an immersive and informative experience. As well as risk being bitten or attacked, visitors can use a magnifying glass tool to get a closer look, or find out more about each creature’s habitat and behaviour, or first aid treatment. Multiple users can interact with the table at any one time, making the experience all the more fun and lively.


The Australian company Lightwell created the display for the museum's "Surviving Australia" exhibition, and from the video it looks to be a very enjoyable activity.
