As part of IBM’s 100th-anniversary celebrations this year, the technology giant is sharing some of the lessons it has learnt in order to build a better future.
Its interactive Think exhibition is an exploration of how advances in science and technology have improved our lives and will continue to make the world safer, more efficient and more sustainable.
Visitors are greeted by a 123-ft digital wall visualising data from systems surrounding the exhibition, including traffic, air quality and solar energy, in real time. Further exhibits include an immersive film about humankind’s quest for progress, and interactive galleries guiding visitors though the everyday technology used to track data – from biomedical sensors and telescopes, to RFID tags.
Think runs at the Lincoln Center, New York, until October 23 2011.
