Predictions

The predictions table is a fun quiz that tests multiple players' science fiction knowledge.

The clothed table, with a mysterious crystal ball in the centre, playfully evokes the character of a fortune teller's table. Here however, the table asks as many questions as it answers.

Visitors peer into the crystal ball to see a spiralling object materialise, and then projections on the table surface present a question about that object. Visitors answer the questions by touching the surface of the table, which has capacitance sensors underneath.

Over 114,000 visitors explored this temporary exhibition at the British Library.
