Tongue & Teeth Exhibit
The graphic panels on this page were scanned in at low resolution for faster on-line loading time. However many of the fine details and color gradations were lost in this transference.
The panels are not depicted with their back lit illumination and animation.
7} Tongue & Teeth = This is designed as a regular unit with 4 back lit graphic panels and 1 3D model. Two of the four graphic panels are animated:
(#1) panel shows the taste areas of the tongue and the structure of a taste bud.
(#2) panel shows the animated action of the causes of tooth decay and explains them.
(#3) panel shows the structure of the tooth.
(#4) panel interacts with the model by showing what the tongue senses in each of its areas in graphic form.
The Model located on the main consul area features a tongue that simulates taste response. The response of the tongue is shown on panel (#4) where the major senses of taste are depicted. The teeth include the upper and lower set. The cut away model of the head uses LED's to illustrate how taste and smell are interrelated.
Also included is a list of True or False Questions. Next to this list is a set of push buttons allowing the visitor to select the appropriate answer. The Voice Playback technology portion of the exhibit will allow the user to hear positive feedback or be prompted to try again.
