Developed by Ideum with the Imaginarium and Ansel Associates, this interactive multitouch table exhibit is part of the Life Sciences gallery. The exhibit runs on an Ideum MT-50 multitouch table.
Visitors can drop images of various animals into an interactive "comparison wheel" to see how any two animals compare. The comparison wheel, along with the images, can be rotated 360 degrees, making the exhibit completely omni-directional. Up to four people can interact on the multitouch table simultaneously.
The exhibit software was developed with Adobe Flash and the GestureWorks multitouch framework for Flash.
The Animal Comparison exhibit is part of the Imaginarium Discovery Center which opens to the public on May 22, 2010.
