An interactive exhibition which introduces prominent scientists, thinkers and innovators, whose essential discoveries and inventions have influenced the lives of people around the world, through state-of-the-art technologies and virtual reality.

Embark on a journey to explore innovations and scientific discoveries that 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 treatments are presented in the exhibition together with representatives of the latest innovations in digital technology and medicine.

The uniqueness of the Czech Innovation Expo (CIE) exhibition is based on interconnection of interactive audiovisual art, design and digital augmented reality technology. 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 innovation. When the device is pointed at a particular symbol on a wall, the story will unfold on their screen. The CIE has already been presented around the world and is now coming to Birmingham!
