Ci helps Queensland Museum see the world a little better

The projection mapping installation Ci provided the Queensland Museum for its Science Centre has been a big hit. Spread out across 3 zones, the centre houses over 40 interactive exhibits incorporating audio visual which the public can explore to discover how science, technology, engineering and maths affect our everyday world.

This ‘Science on a Sphere’ projection system shown above offers a variety of displays selectable from the adjacent kiosk.  These can range from a complete 3D model of the planet earth (as if you were viewing it from a spacecraft a million miles away), to a replica of the sun, Jupiter, Saturn, or even satellites of those planets’  It’s amazing to see a rotating planet on the sphere and then realise it’s not the sphere rotating, but four stitched images moving in unison.
