CRYPTO is an exhibit that explores cryptozoology and the discovery of cryptids through an interactive iPad experience triggered by sensors embedded in the physical space. Visitors are introduced to the topic and invited to utilize their devices to "discover" the hidden animals. When cryptids are "discovered" by the iPads, pulsing concentric bands are projected on the wall in the vicinity of the animal, the details of which are revealed on the iPad. The visitor is then encouraged to learn more about the myths and legends that are associated with the particular cryptid.
