100 innovations exhibition at Tekniska museet, Stockholm uses Dataton’s Watchout technology in its interactive video wall display. The 100 innovations exhibition at the Tekniska museet (The National Museum of Science and Technology), Stockholm, Sweden recently won the ‘Best program for targeted audience’ category of the IDCA Awards (International Design Communication Awards).
 The exhibition was produced by the National Museum of Science and Technology in conjunction with PS Communication and Story Design Studio. 100 innovations showcases the most important innovations in history as voted by the Swedish people. Since its inauguration in February 2012, 100 innovations has attracted over 300,000 visitors and is scheduled to run until 2015.
A central part of the exhibition called ‘The Brain’ screens hourly interactive video demonstrations using Dataton’s Watchout multi-image and presentation software. It is integrated with six projectors to map individual sections of video across a 6 x 12 meter curved video wall display.
Music and sound effects work with the video as museum visitors select their favourite innovation, post messages and interact with what is shown on screen. At the end of each presentation, an innovation award is presented by a robot. Voting is also accessible for online and virtual visitors to the museum website.
Video content for each of the individual innovations of The Brain exhibit was designed and created by multimedia specialist Eyebrite Film and Visions. Systems integrator Informationsteknik designed the system and installed the interactive video wall display. The curved screen created a challenge for the projection mapping, according to Jan Brånå at Eyebrite Film and Visions. “Another challenge solved by Watchout was the ability to present text and information on each individual square, and Watchout easily managed to scale text according to the size and position of the display area.”The National Museum of Science and Technology also utilises Dataton PICKUP audio guides in various exhibition areas. Photography by Ellinor Algin, © Tekniska museet
