Evolution gets interactive at NHM

A NEW interactive film using cutting-edge technology to recreate the past and bring to life the story of evolution has been launched at the Natural History Museum in London.

A visitor to the Natural History Museum comes face to face with a Coelophysis on one of the ‘Who do you think you really are?’ handsets.

A visitor to the Natural History Museum comes face to face with a Coelophysis on one of the ‘Who do you think you really are?’ handsets.

Guided by Sir David Attenborough, ‘Who do you think you really are?’ is on show twice daily in the Attenborough Studio.
During the film, audiences will discover how we are related to dinosaurs, early humans and even bananas by using a handset to send images to screens around the studio, interact with museum scientists, play with virtual specimens and take part in quizzes.
Computer-generated images of Coelophysis (a dinosaur), Homo erectus (an ancestor of modern man) and an intricate tree of life will also appear as though they are in the studio with you.
Admission to the museum and film show is free.
