Domesday Reloaded touchtable
The new table has a 52-inch multitouch display that supports pinch-to-zoom and rotation and can support four users simultaneously. It also has on-board audio and "very high-spec graphics similar to those used in games machines".
Visitors can use the machine to explore more than 50GB of maps, photos, articles and videos, a TNMOC spokesperson added.
"How exciting to be able to translate the vision of a people's database of British life from the cutting-edge technology of the 1980s into an elegant 21st-century equivalent," Peter Armstrong, one of the leaders of the original Domesday project and contributor to the touchtable project, said.
