“Bicentennial Experience” Mobile Museum Infused with Technology from Sensory Technologies and VisionThree

Sensory Technologies partners to create a memorable immersive experience that will tour Indiana as part of the bicentennial celebration.

Sensory Technologies and VisionThree, both headquartered in Indianapolis, are known for their unique approach to designing experiences through the use of technology and creative elements. The Bicentennial Experience, a technology-infused mobile museum unveiled last Friday at the Indiana State Fairgrounds by the Indiana Office of Tourism Development (IOTD), is the most recent example of their partnership.

Hoosier visitors are encouraged to reminisce and dream as they interact with several captivating touch displays, customized programming, compelling visual imagery, and immersive audio – all featuring iconic Indiana sights and sounds. The seamless integration of audio-video capabilities and interactive design allows for a rich story to emerge within the mobile unit.

“We were honored to support this important, memorable project for the state’s bicentennial celebration,” said Derek Paquin, partner at Sensory Technologies. “Using technology in novel ways to engage people, to evoke emotions, can be extremely powerful. It’s exciting to give visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in Indiana’s past, present and future – and then leave with a stronger connection to the State.”

The self-contained mobile unit will visit communities across the state making stops in many of the places on the bicentennial torch relay route.

Inside The Bicentennial Experience are 6 different exhibits areas.

From Indiana’s stunning landscapes and waterways, to its most precious natural resources, visitors will encounter some of the state’s most prolific assets in Indiana Treasures. An interactive touchscreen invites them to dig deeper into Indiana’s environments.

Also, visitors can learn about the people who put Indiana on the map in the Indiana Leads exhibit.

Indiana Grows will bring to life Indiana’s unmatched agricultural heritage. It will also heighten every visitor’s sense of smell with a mystery scent station featuring Indiana produce.
Hoosiers are born makers and doers. In Indiana Inspires, visitors will meet notable Hoosiers through a visual touch screen database.

Indiana Innovates is an artifact display case that shows items invented by Hoosiers, made by people from Indiana or built with Indiana products.

Indiana Unites is the finale. The last experience is a powerful video showcasing Indiana’s virtues and illustrating Hoosiers coming together during this time of celebration.
