Battle of Bannockburn revisited

Now, if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, then you’ll know I’ve talked about the Battle of Bannockburn Experience before. But, since that article I’ve found this really interesting video showing how the entire experience was put together.

Now, this video is ultimately a sales pitch for Eltrosonic but, between the sales pitches, it explains better than I ever could about how the experience works and how they created it. It makes for interesting viewing (sorry about the length. From about 10:00 – 12:25 is mostly promoting the reliability of the company).

In the video, for example, they talked about how important the experience was. People were watching to see how the experience would do. If it went well then there would be more clients thinking about putting in digital experiences such as the battle but, do it wrong and you’d be putting off more institutions that may have been considering going digital. I think what would be interesting to know now, now that the experience has been installed since 2014, whether more museums or heritage places were considering installing something similar.

What do you think? Will more museums have interactive displays like this? Should museums consider going fully digital, fully Augmented? Or do you think this is an example of too much of a good thing?
