SCIENCE and NATURE

 

Many of our holograms are fun and wacky but we also have a large collection of scientific and nature orientated Holograms.  A Chieftain tank, a disappearing apple, a skull, falcon and even some lion cubs are captured in holographic form. 

Holography is ideal for archival recording of valuables or fragile museum artefacts.  Our collection has some fine examples of this.  'Lindow Man' is a hologram of a man who died over 2000 years ago.  His body was preserved in peat and discovered at Lindow Moss, Cheshire (England) in 1984. He was nicknamed 'Pete Bogg' by the archaeologists who excavated his almost perfectly preserved body.  You can also see a beautiful and incredibly detailed hologram of the 'Broighter Boat'.  The original silver boat can be seen in the National Maritime Museum of Ireland in Dublin. 

Skull
Hip Joint For a really 'hip' hologram our 'artificial hip joint' is hard to beat.  As you move from side to side you see this remarkable invention being assembled by the surgeons responsible at the Morris Muller Institute in Basle.  This could be particularly interesting for you if you know someone who has had one fitted or perhaps have one yourself.

The holograms were great and everything interactive was brilliant especially for "Big Kids". We went out that evening and recommended it to everyone we were with who seemed sold on going.
