d3t is celebrating the installation of the ground-breaking ColliderCase. This unique museum display case enables real objects to be fused with digital content creating a hologram-like experience for visitors.
Virtual Case Systems, the company behind ColliderCase, is a collaboration between York-based designers Bright White Ltd and d3t. d3t created the state of the art software needed to make ColliderCase a reality. The innovation has proved a major hit with the heritage sector, marking a revolution in the way artifacts can be displayed.
The National Trust for Scotland is the first to install ColliderCase at The Culloden Visitor Centre to display and interpret previously unseen documents written by Charles Edward Stuart, perhaps better known as Bonnie Prince Charlie. The ColliderCase enables visitors to view the documents and their story in one hi-tech, secure, conservation grade environment. Interpretive content is delivered in a choice of six languages, in large print and as audio description, enabling a wide range of visitors to access these unique and historically significant documents. The case also collects data via sensors so exhibits can be tailored and refreshed throughout the year.
d3t General Manager Richard Badger said,
The project was carried out in collaboration with Bright White Ltd who came up with the innovative design. Our job was to create the software needed to bring the design to life. And we are delighted with the result. It’s a great example of our team’s creativity and problem-solving skills. It’s fantastic to see the first ColliderCase being installed at Culloden to display these highly significant documents for the first time and we’re looking forward to hearing visitor feedback.
