Abstract

Incorporating exhibits that combine physical and digital interactions to aid in object interpretation is a priority for museums, but the study of their effectiveness is still a nascent area of research. This group has designed and evaluated two iterations of a prototype exhibit for the Science Museum, London incorporating physical/digital interactions with an abstract model of a rotary phone. Using visitor observation and interviews, the group developed design principles and recommendations for the Science Museum to develop future physical/digital interactives.
