The Transport Museum is an exiting visitor experience which encompasses more than 100 displays, presenting anything from plain video playback to kiosks based on touch screens or mechanical interactions, all running over the local network from an on-premise Blocks server.
Not only is the installation large in scope and numbers, but it also uses a wide variety of the features now available in Blocks, and to very good effect:
• 360 degree panoramas showing the interior of cars too fragile for visitors to enter physically, with hotspots highlighting interesting features.
• Precision timing and score presentation for a runner's track, comparing your speed to that of various vehicles.
• A number of quiz games, checking what visitors know.
• Interactive train cockpits, where visitors can drive the train using the original controls, here affecting the engine sound and the view out the window as the train speeds up and slows down.
• A jukebox playing numerous travel-related songs.
• A miniature train kids can ride, with lighting and sound effects.
• Redundant server installation, with a hot-swappable, on-site Mirror server.
