This project's purpose is to construct a multimedia exhibit of "The Herberstein Armor", a German 16th century suit of armor. This included a research paper, comprehensive website, and a 3D animation providing museum guests a way to view the shape of the armor from all sides. The paper (and corresponding website) details the history of armor, the context in which it might have been used, the process of constructing such a suit, and details about the suit itself.
