Projects: Giant Interactive Wall Turns On At Smithsonian’s Flight Hall

July 20, 2016 by Dave Haynes


This is a massive new interactive video wall at the newly renovated Milestones of Flight Hall at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC.

It’s a 16- by 12-foot interactive media wall that prompts visitors to explore, collect, and save their favourite objects from the museum’s collection, using the museum mobile app.

The project was put together by the Philly interactive agency Bluecadet.

Very nice. Kinda looks like Multitaction’s touch interface, but the PR doesn’t say so. NOTE – It’s not Multitaction – see comments.

  1. Actually the interface is completely custom developed in Cinder. Used a PQ Labs IR frame and Planar monitors. Also integrates w a new Drupal website and iOS and Android app all developed by Bluecadet. The web CMS also powers the wall and apps. Thanks for the coverage!

    Thanks Josh. Well done. And very interesting that you are powering a video wall off Drupal.
