Civil War Touchtable

About This Project

Touchtables are gaining popularity in museums, historical societies and cultural institutions.  They are a way to gather a group of people around a single app and engage in a multitouch, multiperson way.  No longer limited to single visitor engagement, touchscreen table exhibits are inclusive.  DIGITAL has created custom software applications for a variety of touchtable uses such as databases, photo galleries, video playlists, audio jukeboxes, interactive timelines, games and more!

This exhibit featured three scrollable timelines, a database of soldier photos, important historical documents related to the last three years of the U.S. Civil War, an artifact display of battle flags, technology improvements in Civil War weaponry and maps of famous battles.  Rich graphics, video and audio enhanced the presentation.
