The paper discusses the design challenges for creating NetWorld, a permanent museum exhibit about how the Internet works. The exhibit space itself is responsive to visitors. It senses them through technologies such as computer vision, wireless ID cards, and physical devices with embedded sensors and responds to them through large touch screens and large-format interactive displays that span across multiple projectors. We present the design goals that lead to the adoption of these techniques and discuss the practical challenges in creating a coherent aesthetic and immersive visitor experience while adopting brand new technologies.
