Leonardo da Vinci's Codex Arundel

Client: The British Library

Currently Turning the Pages™ 2.0 is only available to PC users with Microsoft Windows XP or Vista. http://www.bl.uk/ttp2/ttp1.html

For the launch of Windows Vista, Microsoft invited us to develop a whole new version of Turning the Pages™, using some of the new 3D technologies in the operating system. The result is an amazing three-dimensional experience that also includes an array of new tools such as personal note-taking. The application is being used to showcase the reunification of two Leonardo da Vinci codices - Bill Gates Codex Leicester and the British Library's Codex Arundel. This will open up opportunities for scholars in a way never before possible.


Herbarium Sheets

The NHM wanted to develop a compelling Turning the Pages Herbarium, with pages that came alive. Visitors can turn the pages and see plants grow and butterflies flit about the pages. This is a truly magical TTP application.


The Dering Roll

Client: English Heritage

TTP was completely recoded in 2009 to allow the integration of large scrolls. The Dering Roll is 2.7 metres long, and comprises a large table of heraldic symbols. Touching on a button brings up spotlights and you can then touch the spotlit area to find out more.
