Interactive Classic Car Exhibit
Client: British Motor Museum
The British Motor Museums brief was for Unusual Projects to design and build an exciting and realistic physical interactive for younger visitors to engage with, specifically to create and encourage dialogue between generations visiting the museum.
We proposed a themed vintage sports car with working period features including radio, windscreen wipers, lights, indicators and a honking horn. We specifically included features that would be unfamiliar to younger visitors such as ashtrays and chokes, hoping that this would generate conversation based on older visitors personal memories.
The car itself is built from wood with applied graphics, it will be internally housed but is unsupervised meaning that all interactive elements had to be very rigorously designed and built.
We worked very closely with the team at BMM to ensure we understood the learning outcomes and requirements of the intervention as well as their internal maintenance capabilities post project. We have ensured that all parts are easily sourced and simple to replace if damaged.
“Unusual Projects have delivered a truly unique and multi-sensory interactive which has proven to be an effective and quality addition to the displays at the museum. The team were professional, enthusiastic and helpful throughout the process. Everyone involved was creative and driven, and continue to be supportive to us even following the successful installation. Staff and public alike have been impressed by what has been produced.”
