DESCRIPTION: Publicly-accessible interactive educational program

PURPOSE: In Japan, it is customary to designate a portion of lobbies in new

buildings to publicly-accessible exhibits and functions
To encourage the public to visit their new world headquarters,
Sharp wished to create a high-quality interactive educational
program that would profile the origins, present state of, and
futures of a wide range of technologies
The program was formatted for laserdisk, and housed in 20
custom-designed kiosks

FEATURES: User interface based on the fictional island of Bensalem, as

described by scientist Francis Bacon (1561-1626) in his book
"New Atlantis;" the purpose of Bensalem was to facilitate
research and development into a wide range of subjects
Computer-animated opening sequence of museum-type gallery,
with live actor portraying Francis Bacon, guiding viewer high-
lighting achievements of major scientific thinkers through time
A wide range of media, including illustrations, graphics, multi-
lingual narration, music, video, photography, and computer
animated simulations and visualizations

RESULTS: Heralded by top Sharp executives and Japanese public

Among the largest and most successful multi-lingual, interactive
public-access presentations in Japan
