4. Live speech in 3D holographic projection
A special square-shaped box beams 3D holographic images to accompany, one after another, speeches of Indian Presidents. Stand anywhere and see them delivering their speeches, as if in real life.
5. Personal belongings
The museum showcases, in separate windows, personal belongings of all 13 Presidents, giving a glimpse of their choice of clothes, habits and lifestyle.
6. Meet the President
Never met the country’s first citizen? No worries. Go to a small cubicle placed in the museum and press a button. On the large screen, a photo will appear where the visitor and the President will be talking to each other.
7. Privalite projection
It appears to be a simple, see-through glass. But when the projector beams a live video, it becomes a TV telecasting daily news. Viewers can go behind the screen and continue to watch the show.
8. The Study of the President
A replica of the room where the President meets the visitors in his office.
9. Hand Shadow Show
If you want to know how a President is elected, all you need to do is watch this hand shadow show with a running commentary. It will tell you about the election process, the Parliament building, the Rashtrapati Bhavan, Indian villages and the Pillars of Ashoka through the movement of hands.
10. Gandhi Walk
Stand in a room and see Mahatma Gandhi talking to Lord Irwin on screen. And then, when he walks out of the Rashtrapati Bhavan — then Viceroy’s House — you can join him in virtual reality. Feel free to click pictures, wave hands and do a namaskar.
