Digital Card Cabinet

Demonstration of the Digital card cabinet, we’ve created for the National Museum of Ethnology in Osaka Japan.

The system is featured in the special exhibition on ‘Umesao Tadao’, the founder of the museum. He was known for drawing and writing his ethnological research on paper cards, providing a rich collection of world-wide ethnological information.

The system allows visitors of the exhibition to create their own cards about parts of the exhibition they liked, and store them in a digital cabinet, either with pen and paper, or digitally with an iPod touch.

The exhibition is open from today, the 10th of March 2011 until the 14th of June 2011. The National Museum of Ethnology is located next to the EXPO ’70 park in the north of Osaka, which makes for a great combination to visit together.
