The “Dinosaurs & Robots” (working title) project, under the co-creative direction of The Almeida and Factory 42, will combine the latest mixed reality technology from Magic Leap with immersive theatre to create two separate adventure game visitor experiences, exploring multi-sensory and truly interactive worlds. In the iconic rooms of the Natural History Museum and Science Museum, visitors will play the role of detectives and meet and interact with a cast of digital characters, from androids and artificial intelligences to velociraptors and fossils.
At the Science Museum, visitors will encounter a mixed-reality detective experience featuring high-resolution 3D scans of robots and other iconic objects from its collection, to bring the latest in robotics and artificial intelligence to life.
At the Natural History Museum, awe-inspiring dinosaurs from their collection will be brought to life and visitors will experience the detective work of palaeontologists and share the thrill of scientific discovery.
The project is led by Factory 42, creators of the multi-award winning interactive virtual reality experience Hold The World with Sir David Attenborough at the Natural History Museum, in conjunction with Sky.
Join a world-class creative team that includes some of the UK’s leading theatre directors, computer game designers and developers, 3D audio, multi-sensory technologists, animators, graphic designers, writers, actors, artists and researchers collaborating with museum curators and academics.
We are based in Somerset House, a former Royal Palace overlooking the River Thames and on the edge of Covent Garden.
Somerset House is home to the largest and most diverse collection of creative organisations, freelancers, artists, makers and thinkers in London.
Our neighbours include the British Fashion Council, the Courtauld Institute of Art and an eclectic range of producers, developers, musicians, dancers, marketeers and artists.
Our first floor high-ceiling and light-filled office overlooks the River Thames, South Bank and Houses of Parliament. Directly below is a river terrace which in summer hosts a tented bar and pizza restaurant.
We have access to bike racks, showers and a snooker room and all staff get a 10-20% discount in the various bars, cafes and restaurants on site.
At Christmas the main courtyard has an ice rink, while in Summer it hosts gigs and the FilmFour season of outdoor film screenings.
