The National Park Service wanted to create an interactive exhibit for visitors to the newly renovated Hamilton Grange. We created an experience that goes well beyond the traditional click-and-play approach by developing an interactive that the visitor can engage and interact with one-on-one.
By combining several new technologies and a powerful computer a virtual Alexander Hamilton experience was created. The process began by digitizing the most accurate sculpture of Hamilton and creating a stylized 3-D avatar. This avatar was given a distinctive voice and a wide degree of independent interaction. Visitors are able to ask the avatar questions related to Alexander Hamilton’s life and experiences and hear his respond based on information taken from his many writings. The program provides expert commentary from author and Duke University Professor of History Dr. Joann Freeman and National Park Service Director of Interpretation Steve Laise on different aspects of Hamilton’s life.
This interactive program won several awards for design, innovation, and technology.
