CONNECTING VR IN-GALLERY
Handley Page VR is the first project created by the Science Museum Group’s newly formed digital lab which has been set up to explore new forms of audience experience that are enabled through emerging digital technologies.
The Science Museum’s Mathematics: The Winton Gallery tells the story of how mathematics has shaped our world. Designed by the world-renowned Zaha Hadid Architects, the new gallery spans 400 years of human ingenuity and brings mathematical history to life through the design and architecture of its displays.
The largest object in the gallery is a Handley Page aircraft which provides the inspiration for the gallery’s turbulence-inspired wind tunnel design. Preloaded was tasked by Science Museum and Samsung with turning the Handley Page aircraft into a virtual reality experience capable of delivering the gallery’s key content messages and contextualising its design.
