The project is the result of the competition “Let Technology Rise You Up – Open competition for Museums and Cultural sites”, which was launched in May 2019 by the Museum Lab. The competition was addressed to museums interested in a collaboration for incorporating emerging technologies that would help them become more visible and attractive.
The winner of the competition was the Fairytale Museum in Nicosia and the developed exhibition was fully funded and developed by CYENS.
The aim of the project is to “bring to life” the Magic objects Room of the Fairytale Museum with the help of technology.
Each object selected by the children, is recognised by sensors and triggers a semi-immersive experience, with animations projected on the wall and on the floor, giving a sense of immersion to the children. Each animation includes music and narration related to the particular object.
The experience is available in both Greek and English and was launched in 2022 in the Fairytale Museum in Nicosia.
The project is a collaboration of the Museum Lab with ITICA
