    21 culturally sensitive digital museum installations were custom designed and built for the Museum of Science and Technology in Islam (MOSTI) in Saudi Arabia. Multi-touch tables, giant touch screens and other cutting-edge interactive exhibits were put together to bring to life the technical and science advancements of the Muslim world from 700BC to 1700BC.

  • Museum of Science and Technology in Islam

    To explore and bring to life the technical and scientific advances made in the Muslim world between 700BC and 1700BC, we included 21 digital interactive media installations in the science museum design.

    The museum’s interactive displays covered a vast number of fields and topics including maths, medicine, botany, chemistry, astronomy, art and architecture and needed to be culturally appropriate and sensitive. The content of the exhibits also needed to be both English and Arabic and our team eventually developed a genuine Arabic text display function in adobe flash as simply ranging the text right did not display the Arabic correctly.
    For the MOSTI Museum we custom built the following exhibits:

    • Interactive Timeline Table
    • Muslim Town Development Topographical Projection
    • Geometric Art Multi-Touch Table
    • Interactive Muslim World Map and Book Exhibit
    • Mathematics Card Table
    • “Why did Islamic Science flourish?” Sliding Screen
    • 12 Other Classic Touch Screen Applications
    • Museum Quiz Game
