National Museum of Health and Medicine Seeks Funding

National Museum of Health and MedicineThe National Museum of Health and Medicine is seeking funding for Touch Screen Walls, and other High-Tech features.

At present thin touchscreens are fitted with Kinect motion sensors built by Microsoft for the Xbox gaming system.

Eventually, those features will be embedded in the walls, nearly identical to a sketch Doyle made years ago on a “Panang curry-stained” placemat of his ideal exhibit space.

Established during the Civil War as the Army Medical Museum, the Silver Springs, Md.-based museum is home to a collection of an estimated 24,662,515 medical specimens, photos and documents, with an emphasis on military medicine. www.medicalmuseum.mil
