Andrew Liszewski, Holographic Display Cases Could Help Museums Bring Artefacts To Life, Gizmodo, 5 May 2016
Walking through a museum is a wonderful way to learn about history, but you can only glean so much by looking at a random object, or reading a tiny description of it. Using animated holograms, a company called ColliderCase wants to help bring museum exhibits to life.
For example, if you’re not an experienced navigator, it’s hard to understand how exactly a sextant works. And given the frailty of some artefacts, they can’t be physically demonstrated by museum staffers. But through the use of holograms projected onto crystal clear glass display cases, animations, simulations and demonstrations could help illustrate why an exhibit was so important or how it was used.
