Dinosaur fossils brought to life by technology exhibit

Help

The Natural History Museum - more famous as the home of ancient fossils - is using augmented reality in a novel way to reanimate extinct creatures.

With the aid of hand-held computers, and a new interactive film, viewers will be able to see extinct hominids and dinosaurs walking around the room they are sat in.

Ailsa Barry, head of interactive media at the museum, explains how the new technology will "breathe new life" into the story of evolution.
