Forth Dimension Displays at the National Museum of Scotland
The HMD now takes pride of place and can be found on level 1 of the museum
Chambers Street in Edinburgh came alive last week in celebration of the re-opening of the National Museum of Scotland. The street was transformed with dancers, drummers and a dinosaur to boot and the launch evening, a huge success. Just some of the highlights shown in the new part of the museum include Scottish history, The Natural World and the new Art & Industry gallery.
The team at Forth Dimension Displays (ForthDD) were delighted to attend the special open evening, having gifted a fully immersive Visette45ST Head Mounted Display (HMD) through Dutch company, Cybermind. Traditionally used for military training and medical applications, offering therapy for burns victims and alternative treatment for sufferers with severe phobias, the HMD now takes pride of place and can be found on level 1 of the museum.
The near-to-eye (NTE) microdisplay technology which enables this Head Mounted Display to function was supplied by ForthDD. The development of new technologies and new materials has always had a great influence on the way in which products are designed and made. This gallery explores applications from the most innovative technologies, materials and methods of manufacture often combined with traditional skills, from 1850 to the present day. ForthDD most recently launched a full immersive virtual reality concept in the U.S. called Replicating Reality.
