The future was here

Borås Museum, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

The exhibition The Future was here explores cultural heritage in relation to the possibilities and challenges of technology and digitalisation. With the help of digitalization, can we get closer to some of the innovations and innovation processes that have to do with the human energy supply and who have shaped and changed our society?

How are innovations created, who can be an innovator, how does it actually go and what perceptions about this each carry us on? These issues are examined in the exhibition together with RISE Interactive and the cultural association Utopia in the project Everyone can innovate! The project has resulted in a first prototype of an interactive game room that will be further developed during the autumn together with school students. The games room is part of the exhibition.

The interactive game room is constructed as an escape room in VR for three players. Here the museum's visitors will be able to try to be co-creators in historicalinnovations related to heating. How has history solved challenges linked to these and how do we solve the challenges that we face today?

Game information:

The game is from 8 years. The games room is open to the museum's visitors on Tuesdays-Fridays at. 14-16, 21 May - 9 August. After that, the games room is only open for booked school classes (until 11 October). Please note that we do not have a booking system for the museum's visitors. It's drop in that applies!

In order for the game to work, it takes three people to play simultaneously.

Estimated time is about 30 minutes with a technical review. The total playing time is about 15 minutes. Each player carries a wireless headset with associated controls. The headset closes out the real room's sound and vision impressions. If you have never been to a VR environment before, it can be an overwhelming experience. It may be good to know in advancethat some people may feel motion sickness the first time they are in a VR environment. Throughout the game, a tutor will be present and helpful.

The interactive games room is being developed in collaboration between Borås Museum, RISE Interactive, the Utopia Culture Society, Chalmers students and school students.
