Infinity Gallery VR Experience
A Product of Infinity Festival 2018
The Museum hosted our inaugural Infinity Festival in July of 2018. The event explored the latest advancements in virtual reality and other interactive immersive technologies through a weekend of exciting hands-on experiences. Attendees enjoyed immersive technology demonstrations, created 3D scans of artifacts from the Museum’s collection and experienced an expert panel discussion on emerging technologies.
The 3D scanning of Museum artifacts during the Festival resulted in an exciting new online collection: Infinity Gallery VR Experience. The collection can be experienced above.
