The Ashmolean Interactive Collection is a multi-touch electronic book combining interactive 3D & VR models, high-resolution pan & zoom images with videos, maps and textual narrative to tell entertaining and informative stories about a selection of objects from the museum’s collection.
Spin the 3D & VR models around; watch video clips of talks given by the curators Catherine Whistler, Christopher Howgego, Nicholas Mayhew and Jon Whiteley; zoom into the details of beautiful works of art by Raphael, Uccello and Di Cosimo, and use the maps as an introductory guide and navigational tool when visiting the museum.
In collaboration with the Ashmolean Museum, we highlight a selection of 15 treasures from Britain’s first museum.
What's New in Version 1.1
Version 1.1 - Updated to include interactive floor plans with pictures of the museum galleries plus interactive off-line and on-line location maps
Very impressive. The texts are pitched just right, and complement the videos and 3D models perfectly.
