Where Will Museums Fit Into the Society of the Future?

During the 2010 AAM Annual Meeting, The Pinky Show conducted some interviews.  The idea was to obtain an idea of how society might be improved, and where Museums would fit into this society of the future.  This video presents clips of the interviews, edited by the  Center for the Future of Museums.

Visit to read about the shows expedition to the future of museums.

Meet Holly and Graham

"Help us Obi Wan Kenobi, you're our only hope!"

You probably remember that quote from Princess Leia in the original Star Wars.  
She was projected as a hologram to Obi Wan Kenobi to deliver a very important message.  This message ultimately saves the rebellion from Darth Vader and the Empire's Death Star.  When I first saw this movie in the late 70s, this was truly science fiction.  Well, not anymore!

Take a look at this BBC News video introducing Holly and Graham.  They are the newest members of the security team at London's Luton Airport. They are holograms and they too deliver an important message.  Imagine how this technology will change the modern museum experience.

"LUKE, I AM YOUR FATHER"...  I'm sorry, but it had to be said.
