Visitor Use of Multitouch Tables in the Galleries

One of the questions within our research was whether having a table in the galleries impacts the amount of attention and the amount of time spent on other elements.

In each of the galleries we studied, the multitouch table was not the most 'popular' object in the gallery, that was always an element of the collection. For instance, in the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, over 86% of the visitors spent time with the Stegomastodon jaw, and roughly 63% used the multitouch table.

The stay time in each of the galleries was longer for the table than any other object in the galleries, averaging about 2 minutes at each site. While we've observed longer stay times at other multitouch tables, those tables tend to have more extensive or directed interactives than the collections-based content on these tables.

New Exhibit Download: Solar System Exhibit

The solar system exhibit is a multitouch interface that allows users to select planets as image hotspots and explore the pop-up windows. Each planet is linked to an informational pop-up that contains a slideshow of images and descriptive text for each planet. Each pop-up can be rotated, scaled, and dragged. Pop-ups are tethered to the planet for easy identification. The exhibit also includes an attract screen.

The exhibit is fully configured in CML to support customization of a number of features. The exhibit can be customized to support your own subject, content, and style by altering the CML and media files. For example, font sizes and colors, background colors, amount of images, and image navigation buttons are all customizable.
