Here’s a sneak preview of some new objects we’ve added to the map! There’s more content animation to come, but we hope you enjoy the show for now!
We’re really excited about getting started on this new project for the fabulous Cottage Museum in Woodhall Spa.
We’ll be developing two new photo archive interactives that will bring their amazing collections to the visitors for the first time.
One interactive will be exploring the relationship between the village of Woodhall Spa (located at the heart of what is often referred to as ‘Bomber’ County) and World War II.
The second interactive will be making the John Wield photographic collection available. This began life over 100 years ago and documents Woodhall Spa in the early to mid 1900’s.
Here’s some of our current work in progress. Look out for more objects coming to the map soon…
Working with Cadw, Wide Sky Design has completed the first of a number of new exhibits at Caerphilly Castle. As visitors enter the Inner East Gatehouse history comes to life before their very eyes. The fabric of the castle rumbles and shakes as chains begin to lift the mighty weight of a portcullis. The portcullis appears through an opening in the floor and rises up the wall right in front of them. Horses gallop through the archway below, then suddenly the portcullis drops back through the floor and bangs into place to protect the castle once more.
Here’s a sneak preview of an interactive portcullis for Caerphilly Castle shot during on-site testing…
This is work in progress but we are delighted to be working on this project at Varsity Court in Derby with local artist Rachel Carter.
A series of four sculptures, commissioned by Persimmon Homes will explore the community, wildlife and history of the Mickleover area.
The digital interpretation will provide smart phone access so visitors can discover the fabulous stories behind the commission whilst they explore the sculptures.
QR codes, NFC links and Microsoft tags will deliver local history, community engagement and links to the wider Revolutionary Journeys project.
There are closer links to the past than anyone expected. Rachel’s research uncovered photographs of a previous, long forgotten, sculpture that had stood on the location planned for one of the new pieces. Find out more here Revolutionary Journeys.
We are delighted to be working on the new visitor centre project at Hengistbury Head.
Hengistbury Head is a scenic and historic headland near Bournemouth on the south coast of England. Standing mid way between Poole harbour and Hurst spit it forms a division between Poole and Christchurch Bays. Being a site of scientific interest and significant archaeological importance it attracts visitors from all over the world.
New 3D animations will unravel the geological processes at work over the last 250 million years and these, alongside interactive maps, will enable the visitor to explore the impact of land formation, erosion, industry and changes in society on this amazing part of our coastline.
This new virtual reality installation at Loggerheads Country Park means the visitors can now fly themselves over the Clwydian Range and explore the chain of Iron Age hillforts. With options to swap between modern and Iron Age the visitor can travel back in time to see the hillforts as they would have looked and even land and roam around the enclosures.
