“Using tablets that are part of Histovery’s proprietary HistoPad Augmented Visit solution, museum visitors will experience the reality of the D-Day airborne mission in an up close and personal way never possible before,” the museum said.
“HistoPad” allows visitors to manipulate 3-D virtual images, explore airplane interiors, virtually operate and manipulate full 360-degree views of equipment, compare scenes today to how they appeared in 1944, view unpublished photographs and extracts of archival films and more, the announcement said.
Beginning May 13 and continuing through the end of the year, HistoPad tablets will be available for exhibit visitors to rent through the Air Force Museum Foundation for $5 each.
Visitors should allow for about 40 minutes for the entire experience.
