Fusion VR is one of India’s leading providers of custom 3D interactive museum solutions. We have been involved with leading private institutions and government agencies from the conception, design, implementation and commissioning of interactive exhibits. We have garnered praise from all quarters for high high-quality visitors experience.

It would be an understatement to say that such interactive museums have become popular in recent years. The advances in technologies and their adoption have led museums to join the trend and provide a unique and immersive experience for visitors to come to museums to see their collections of exhibits and artefacts. These 3D interactive solutions utilise the latest innovative technologies in museums, such as interactive displays, virtual reality, and augmented reality that deliver high quality engaging museum experiences.

Allow me to share a few of the prominent examples of interactive 3D museum solutions that can be found across the world. This is important as these are implemented by some of the finest museums in the world, and we gain insight into how we can implement them in India.

The Smithsonian American Art Museum’s “American Democracy: A Great Leap of Faith” exhibit is our first example. This 3D interactive exhibit features a touchscreen table that enables visitors to explore and experience a topic of their choosing.

In this case, it is the history of American democracy through historical documents, images, and videos. This interactive display is driven by a unique software solution that engages the visitors with an interesting and interactive user interface that allows them to explore and learn about a topic in their own way, at their own pace and at a time of their choice.

Staying in America, let us also look at how virtual reality is deployed to experience what happened millions of years ago with the earth as we explore its history from the time it started to what we see today. The Deep Time exhibit at the Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C is the palace to experience it. Seeing is believing and visitors wear VR headsets to teleport themselves into this highly realistic 3D virtual reality environment that takes you on a time travel experience.

The immersiveness of VR experience centres makes people forget their real world and become part of the virtual world. This custom 3D VR museum experience is not only unique but totally unforgettable. The learnings from such an experience are many times more effective than any form of teaching or communication and can only be rivalled by a real experience. Custom VR museum experience helps deliver to people what has not been seen before or is difficult to safely experience today.

It is important to realise that technologies like VR and AR are being widely deployed across industries, institutions and establishments. VR helps to create immersive environments, while augmented reality overlays interesting and contextual data, voice and digital experience onto the real world that we see. The touchscreen technologies physically engage the visitor to determine their experience. The widespread adoption has lowered costs and the growth of solution providers like Fusion VR has made it possible to have these experiences built by people with rich local knowledge and experience.
