Interview with Museum in a Box – putting collections into people’s hands with the help of 3D printing

Museum in a Box is an organization established by George Oates, a founding designer at Flickr, and inventor of Flickr Commons. The product created by the team is a Raspberry-Pi powered audio box, with an accompanying collection of objects, e.g. miniature 3D printed Moai statutes, illustrations and question cards. When these objects are placed on top of the box an audio file starts playing, telling a fact, a story, or an anecdote relating to it.
