State of the art Viewcams allow you to explore the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh in great detail, and look far beyond. Sharp eyed visitors may spot a ‘bendy man’ or two, relaxing on our rooftop terrace. You can also travel down an infinity corridor to a starry galaxy of lights, see how many colours you can make with your shadow and change your face in our morph machine. Be careful though you may stay a monkey for ever.
We have teamed up with the Perception Lab at the University of St. Andrews to present 'Face morph'.
Sit inside, have your photo taken then see yourself change for example into an ape or a baby- and still recognise yourself. The exhibit exists as a 'photo booth' style structure, housing a fascinating piece of morphing software. The software takes a photograph of the user's face before morphing it into something different. There are many transforms available from making yourself look older to making yourself look like a chimpanzee! The exhibit is a big hit with all our visitors.
Our live High Definition viewcams give you a panoramic view of the city of Edinburgh. You can zoom in and out and look all over town and far beyond. Have a closer look at some of the most fascinating architectural details of the city and also a great view of the hills and countryside surrounding Edinburgh.
You will be able to see the famous Forth road and Rail bridges, watch the one o’clock ball drop on the Nelson monument, and much more. Children will also enjoy spotting the bendy men around the building.
