New Inside Explorer experience at Science Center Singapore

The Science Centre Singapore is considered one of the best science centres in the world. To attract its over 1.5 million visitors a year, top quality exhibitions are paramount.

The Centre has been a long-standing client for Interspectral, one of its first, and is now updating their Inside Explorer tables to improve the user experience for its visitors.

“The Science Centre Singapore was our first customer outside Sweden, the fact that they have decided to invest in two more tables and our new exciting content after several years of use is a big thing for us, it really shows that we deliver a high quality experience.”  

Thomas Rydell, the CEO of Interspectral

Two new Inside Explorer tables with unique content about human anatomy, the human brain and an Egyptian Mummy will be installed. One as part of its E-mmersive Experiential Environments — or E3 – Exhibition, which brings together different virtual reality technologies to create an immersive experience for visitors.

Science Centre Singapore Chief Executive, and Co-Chairperson of the Singapore Science Festival 2016 Organising Committee Associate Prof Lim Tit Meng said this new addition to the E3 Exhibition, which has been getting rave reviews since it opened last year, will add to the already impressive exhibits on show.

“Every day we are able to learn more and more about the previously unknown, as new and exciting technologies let us further explore our world.  The new Inside Explorer tables will enable our visitors to see sights never seen before. We hope this will spark their interest in science, leading to a future of infinite possibilities,”

In the E3 Exhibition it will be possible for visitors to explore the Egyptian Mummy, Neswaui. This content, made available trough Interspectrals partnership with Museum of World culture in Sweden,  has received worldwide media attention for its use of cutting edge technology to capture the 3D imagery, allowing visitors to museums to get a realistic experience of seeing the inside of  a mummy sarcophagus.

The second table will be used in a new upcoming exhibition about the human brain. Visitors to this exhibition will be able to use the Inside Explorer table to explore the most high-resolution models of the human brain to date. The model, called BigBrain, is developed by McConnell Brain Imaging CentreMontréal Neurological Institute (Montréal, Canada) and Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine, Research Centre Jülich (Jülich, Germany).

The exhibits are open now but will be officially launched during Visual SG, South East Asia’s signature Visualisation Festival, where Interspectral’s Professor Anders Ynnerman will give a keynote lecture with the title: “From Mummies to Meteorites”, a talk that will explain the technology behind Inside Explorer.
