AstraZeneca Human Edge Exhibit

How far can humans push their limits? These hands-on displays helped find out.

Three different projects for the Ontario Science Centre are photographed here.

The goal: To design three interactive experiences, complex interfaces and integrate them seamlessly into the overall exhibit design. Challenge accepted.

Banting & Best’s Laboratory: An animated experience of how insulin was discovered.

Hand using pointer wand device to point. Interactive screen shows Banting and Best with a question, telling the user to point with the device to the correct item.
Woman points at item to activate the screen interactive game.

Some interactive choices for the game.
