Ancient Runestone Tells Digital Story

Museums have been using various display technologies to immerse visitors into their exhibits for a while, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything as cool as what’s going on at the Randers Kulturhistoriske Museum located in Denmark. Check it out:

As visitors approach the 1000-year-old Mejlbystenen runic stone, an ancient tale of tragedy and grief is projected upon the stone’s surface, which is already cool all by itself. But just when you think everything is over, the projection shifts and enters the visitors’ area, where it waits for visitors to interact with it.

Unfortunately after seeing this, the only thing you’ll be after vising your local museums is dissapointed… unless you live in Denmark that is!
