An Evening of Digital Technology at the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology! The Petrie Museum is showcasing four new digital technologies that aim to revolutionise the way we interact with museum collections:

  • QRator - an iPad-based interactive live object label. Who is 'the Man from Mitanni'? Work it out with a glass of wine and find out why you shouldn't trust museum databases on our iPad label.
  • Tales of Things - connect to object information via QR codes and add your own tale. Or Follow the QR code museum trail.
  • iCurator - curate your own exhibition in a 3D environment and collaborate remotely.
  • 3D Encounters - 3D scanning technologies creating digital models of ancient artefacts.

If you wish to come along and in and help shape the development of four exciting new technologies aimed at increasing access and engagement with museum collections, then book here!

This is an informal evening of testing, talking, playing and giving feedback on these technologies. Accompanied by a free glass of wine (or two). This event is free but you must book a place.
