Explanatory boards and panels

Solving the two problems of display panels that convey learning at museums and other facilities at the same time!

  • TRICK PRINT

We simultaneously solve two problems that exhibit panels that convey learning are facing!

Museum Exhibitions

Conveying the information you want people to know is necessary for a museum, but it can be difficult to explain and explain and may be avoided.

 
We can solve the problems that interpretive boards at these locations face

Trickprint can solve both problems!

With Trickprint, not only is it participatory, but the paper changes, creating a curiosity trap that greatly improves the chances of getting people to look at it. With Trickprint, visitors can enjoy the experience of wonder as they actually experience the magic of paper changing.

Trickprint will be a hands-on exhibit that can be enjoyed without directly touching the exhibits.

Tickprint, a fun way to communicate learning

Fun way to play, interactive, magic trick-like fun is the POINT!

Compare and contrast with other participatory exhibit panels.

Hands-on Exhibits

Challenges faced by non-digital exhibit interpretation
Forgetting to put it back in will occur.(the answer or result is visible to the next user) Challenges facing the exhibition
Answer concealment (it is difficult to plant the answer in a different place or hide the answer)
Mannerism (Need to be creative not to be conventional: tricks)

Point of comparison

Since the production cost of a craft panel is one-of-a-kind, the cost increases in proportion to the size of the panel and the number of questions. Trickprint makes it easy to hide the answers. The method of checking the answer is similar to that of magic tricks, which also has the effect of entertaining the user.

Compared to a quiz panel with FLASH PRINT Compared to a quiz panel with BELLOWS PRINT
Hands-on Exhibits Hands-on Exhibits
FLASH PRINT quiz panels are produced simply by printing. Since the answers to the quiz can only be checked by the person who took the flash photo, everyone can enjoy the quiz without worrying about spoiling it for those around them. Even if a number of people gather, multiple people can participate at the same time. This is a quiz panel that is suitable for the current era, where the answers can be viewed in a non-contact manner. With BELLOWS PRINT (pinpoint type) quiz panels, the production is completed by printing alone. Only the quiz questions are visible from the front, and the quiz answers can only be seen from different angles on purpose. No one around you will be able to see the answers, and everyone can enjoy the quiz without worry. It can be said that this quiz panel is suitable for the current age, where the answers can be seen in a non-contact manner.

2. Production and comparison of modeling objects

Challenges facing formed exhibits
Forgetting to put it back in will occur.(the answer or result is visible to the next user) Challenges facing the exhibition
Installation space (display of modeling objects requires a large space for safety and maneuverability)
High cost (delivery time and cost are high for the production of molding objects)

Point of comparison

Hands-on exhibits using three-dimensional objects are an important participatory exhibit in a museum. Trickprint enables full-scale hands-on exhibits with printed materials, making initial and restoration costs low. Trickprint's hands-on exhibit is an experience that simulates the feeling of having actually done something, so you can get the sensation of touching or discovering something without having to hold the object in your hands. This will be a new kind of hands-on exhibit.

When comparing Trickprint with conventional molding fabrication
Hands-on exhibit and comparison with BLACKLIGHT PRINT Hands-on exhibit and comparison with RELIGHT PRINT
Hands-on Exhibits Hands-on Exhibits
BLACKLIGHT PRINT interactive exhibit is complete with just the print, and the action of picking up the UV handy light, shining ultraviolet light on it, and discovering the mimicking organisms is highly pseudo-experiential and a new method of interactive exhibit. Since visitors can experience the exhibit without touching the exhibits themselves, it can be said that this is an experiential exhibit suited to the current era. In this hands-on exhibit of RELIGHT PRINT, printed panels can be placed on a light table or exposed to sunlight to simulate changes in living organisms and other objects. RELIGHT PRINT panel changes to a completely different visual by shining light on it from the back.

3.Comparison with digital tools

Challenges facing digital exhibits
People retention (waiting for the next user or not being able to join at the same time as others) 展示 課題
Maintenance (digital equipment requires personnel with restoration skills in case of sudden problems)
High cost (digital content production has high turnaround time and cost)

Point of comparison

The challenges of digital AR are often heard of, such as the high cost of content production, and the fact that the AR experience is time-consuming, which can turn people off from experiencing the product. This is due to barriers such as downloading dedicated applications, communication environment, and data usage fees. On the other hand, although "Trickprint" conveys far less information than digital, it has an immediacy that only analog can offer, making it suitable for projects that aim for universal acceptance. This is because it is a simple trick that can generate an interactive response. We recommend AR for the volume of information and Trickprint for the immediacy.

After attaching the AR glasses to the planetarium experience, the incentive is to enjoy the depth of the content. On the other hand, entertainment for the purpose of hospitality and welcome at tourist spots, etc., is to enjoy a little since you have come all this way, so immediacy is important.

Content aimed at users who want more in-depth information is more likely to overcome barriers because the information is an incentive (for the core audience). In contrast, a bit of entertainment that entertains visitors in line with the theme of the facility, immediacy is important (affects the participation rate).

I want to contribute to solving issues like this! We hope that this will be the case.

I want to reduce to zero the number of broken and immobile contraptions on display in museums and themed facilities!

Hands-on Exhibits

Have you ever visited various places and facilities for travel and sightseeing, only to find that the display equipment at the local theme facilities is broken? It is a shame for both parties to lose the experience and memories of visitors who have come all this way, as well as the ability to communicate the learning experience that we wanted to explain to more visitors.

Hands-on Exhibits
Hands-on Exhibits

Why are they left broken?

Many local exhibits are one-of-a-kind, molded, or made up of special parts and components, so the cost of restoring a contraption is actually quite high! Mechanical devices, devices that use digital content, or devices that are powered by plastic objects, require maintenance, and once a problem occurs, repair is often time-consuming and costly, and there are few alternatives. For this reason, we sometimes see exhibits that are still broken.

So here's a suggestion. Easy to install, by far the cheapest and most affordable hands-on exhibit and interactive art.

With TRICK PRINT, you can instantly replace the exhibit with an interactive exhibit or interactive art that fits your concept. Interactive art that could not be expressed without extensive power and equipment can be easily realized using only printing, providing the same "experiential value" as before. Why not make an effort not to betray the expectations of visitors who have gone to the trouble of visiting your facility or sightseeing spot? TRICK PRINT will contribute to ensure that even a single experience, memory, or learning experience at your facility or sightseeing spot will not be diminished.
