Tucked away in a bomb damaged Quonset hut in the Road to Berlin Exhibit at the National WWII Museum, the Air War Table takes visitors on a series of daring air raids over Europe. Unified Field created a prototype and provided concept development for the interactive Air War Table. In the prototype, guests could select from several interactive Air Force missions enhanced with multimedia content such as pop up content, 3D models, custom rendered ground cover and animated cutaways detailing crew member duties. Overhead, visitors can watch a synchronized digital formation of B-17 bombers flyby.
