Next, Will Wang, Director of King One Interactive Technology, shared on "Digital Asset Perspective: Creating a Seamless Ecosystem for Museum Collections and Exhibits." He emphasized the trend of integrating physical and technological aspects through technology to digitize assets, which is prevalent across industries. 3D modeling, along with multimedia devices such as AR, VR, transparent screens, and naked-eye 3D walls, can provide more immersive sensory experiences. Additionally, complex topics can be simplified into easily understandable visual images, allowing audiences to absorb information unconsciously. This approach is well-suited for museum artifact displays and asset digitization.

Creating a sustainable museum that integrates virtual and real elements, offering immersive interactive experiences.

Promoting art education can bring people closer through more interactive and enjoyable means! Director Dian-Yu Hsu, from the Science Education Division of the National Museum of Natural Science, emphasizes the trend in museum experiences. It has shifted from object-oriented and audience-centered to consumer-centered. Through XR/AI integration and theatrical-style scientific exhibitions, museums can develop sustainable business models. As Director Yi-Hsuan Lin from the National Taiwan Science Education Center stated, museums should aim not to create a science center that attracts a million visitors once but to plan for a science center that attracts ten thousand visitors a hundred times.
