Audience: 150 (cinema style seating).
Sweden’s biggest visualization dome
Wisdome aims to aid our understanding of our planet, natural science and technology. Visualization technology aids our comprehension of phenomena and events that are too small, too big, too fast or too slow for the human eye to take in.
We can travel out into space and inside the smallest building blocks of the human body. We can take a look behind the scenes of the magical world of special effects. And much much more.
Wisdome is schedule to open at Universeum spring 2023.
Movies to long for:
Making Magic 3D
Anything at all can happen in the magical world of visual effects. Making Magic shares insights into how visual effects are created for film and computer games – and how they are influenced by the laws of nature that govern the real world. With Peter Stormare as our guide, we discover how effects are created, from mathematical equations to powerful explosions.
Space is inconceivably vast. With Eva Röse as narrator, we set off on a journey further out into space than mankind has ever been before. We start in our own solar system and head all the way out to the Big Bang. Everything we get to see is based on real data obtained through mankind’s technological advances and many years of research.
Accompany one of our astronauts out among planets, stars and black holes. We undertake unique space journeys in real time with the aid of Open Space, a software for interactive data visualization of all of the known and scientifically plotted universe. Everything you see is real, based on actual data from observations, simulations and space missions.
Projectors: Six projectors, model XDL-4K30 from Barco, which handle six different primary colours of laser. Brightness up to 30,000 ANSI lumens, resolution 4,096 x 2,160 per projector and refresh rate 120Hz. Total resolution 8K.
Sound: Sound system from Meyer Sound. Six X40 loudspeakers, four X42 loudspeakers (for a different dispersion angle) and three X-800C subwoofers.
Universeum’s visualization dome is part of the national Wisdome project. Wisdome is a collaboration with four other Swedish science centers: Visualization Center C in Norrköping, Curiosum at Umeå University, Science Center Malmö Museums and the National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm.
The technology and the digital presentations have been made possible by means of a jubilee donation from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. In 2017, in connection with the foundation’s centenary celebrations, Wisdome received a donation of SEK 150 million to fund the project.
