Charles Darwin - Cocoon

As part of London design week Alice and I took a trip up to London. We went to the V&A and saw a beautiful exhibition on the idea of fairy tales and designers. Then we also went to the new Cocoon at the Natural History Museum and it was simply amazing. The use of the internet and computer interaction was stunning, it brought physical and cyber together perfectly, you could on the net flick through pages and bugs would crawl out of the pages, it was almost better then a real book, such an exciting concept. You could also plan expeditions and although the guides weren’t physically real you felt they were the experience was truly intriguing. There was also these interesting cards with barcodes that allowed you using the computers to save your favourite data from the day to access on the internet later. It was the perfect use of real life experience being enhanced after by the use of the internet. I seriously had the best time of my life. I LOVED IT!
