Czech Innovation Expo opens in Birmingham

A Creative Technological Masterpiece

After more than a year of travelling the world, Czech Innovation Expo (CIE) is now coming to Birmingham. This unique exhibition, which uses modern digital technologies, provides a retrospective of the hundred-year-old history of the Czech Republic in the areas of science, research and innovation as well as it unveils future trends of digital technologies.

The interactive exhibition uses cutting-edge technology and brings back the centuries-old history of the Czech Republic in science, research and innovation while revealing the technological trends of the future. It creates a whole new dimension for inspirational learning and education through its interactivity and processing as lots of scientific discoveries have had an impact on the lives of millions of people around the world. Prominent Czech scientists such as the inventors of the contact lens and HIV drug treatment are presented in the exhibition alongside the representatives of the latest innovations in digital technology and medicine.

The uniqueness of this exhibition is based on the interconnection of the interactive audio-visual art, design and digital augmented reality technology. A long wall full of pictograms and a smart phone or a tablet is all you need - visitors enter seemingly empty space with abstract symbols on the walls, download the CIE AR iOS or an Android application to their smart devices, and then just explore and discover a variety of stories and information about a scientific discovery or an innovation. When the device is pointed at a particular symbol on the wall, the story unfolds on their screens.
"The uniqueness of the project is based on the experience of visitors, who, thanks to the modern digital technologies, become an integral part of interactive stories. They have the opportunity to travel in time through the augmented reality, meet with the most important scientists and innovators of our century-old history and at the same time discover the endless possibilities of the digital and creative potential and development in the Czech Republic," says the director of the Czech Centre London Premysl Pela.
