In cooperation with Design and Production, Redmon developed interactive multimedia exhibit systems for the National Museum of the Marine Corps which opened in November 2006. Our work included two stations: the Marine Corps Guidebook and the capstone to the permanent exhibit, the Deployment Kiosk. The permanent exhibit takes visitors through a virtual recreation of the service and historic experiences of Marines, ranging from a simulated boot-camp experience through the experience of the Marine Corps in the various armed conflicts throughout American history, all the way to the current-day deployment of Marines.
The Guidebook interactive enables visitors to easily browse through the handbook that gives all Marines their fundamental knowledge necessary for success. Visitors can quickly access topics of broad interest, or browse the book at their own pace. The software is designed to allow visitors to zoom in and out on details in pages they are interested in as well as to quickly skim through the pages to find content that interests them.
The Deployment Kiosk is actually implemented as two components. Since the kiosk requires frequent updates to track the locations of mobilized Marine forces, an update utility was also developed in addition to the kiosk software. The update utility allows museum staff to type a few letters of the deployment location and a built-in database locates all matching locations. Clicking on a location shows the location instantly plotted on a built-in world map to confirm the selection.
