In the new permanent exhibition "Schauplatz Natur – Vögel, Säugetiere und Mineralien der Schweiz" (At the Site of Nature – Birds, Mammals and Minerals of Switzerland) you can learn how the outward appearance correlates with the way of moving, and the intake of food with the natural dentition, and how animals adapt to their environment. Another part of the exhibition focuses on the most spectacular Swiss minerals from the museum’s collection.
Tweaklab was commissioned to implement the media technical planning, programming and installation of the media stations.
By means of an analog-digital game the station on the subject of food intake illustrates the correlation between teeth and diet of an animal. Various animal skulls are arranged in a line. The players can pick a chip that has the drawing of an item of food printed on it. They then try to match it to an animal by inserting the chip into a slot placed below the animal skull. RFID recognises if the choice was correct. If so, more information about the animal and its acquisition of food is displayed on the touchscreen.
A falcon’s vision is different from that of a roe. Another media station displays how the various animals experience their surrounding world visually and spatially. With the help of VR-technology the visitor to the museum can get an idea of the animal’s field of vision and marvel at how diversely a scenery can be perceived.
The two touchscreen stations in the exhibition part on the subject of Swiss minerals contain a lot of interesting facts about the emergence, occurrence and processing of the minerals, and besides that invite the visitors to test their knowledge in a quiz.
Additional stations on the topics of "moving in the water", "moving with wings" and "body gown" surprise and amuse. The exhibition is always worth a visit.
