Museums are amazing places, you can get lost in the details learning about a dinosaur toe bone and be in awe at the scale of the animal all at the same time. However making a museum engaging, educational and fun is a skill, we’ve got some great experience doing this and here are our Top 5 tips to make Virtual Reality (VR) engaging in a museum.
2. keep the controls simple:
Like Super Simple, again you’re audience may only use the system once so everything needs to be intuitive, no hidden menus, special combos just plain simple point and click.
3. Integrate a guide:
Don’t assume the person will know what to do or why they’re in the VR environment, build in a guide, visual, vocal, forced. Help your audience explore what you want them to see and learn.
Make it fun and nothings more fun than a quick “who can score the most” game. Build it in, learning through play is key.
5. Keep the focus on the message:
It’s easy in VR to get distracted by everything that is possible to do, but ask yourself “do I need to do that?” or are you just creating distractions.
