DigiFest

The Engine Shed is running it's first digital festival highlighting the latest recording techniques for documenting our historic buildings.

DigiFest

About DigiFest

DigiFest is aimed at families and young people and will feature a range of free events and activities, allowing visitors to explore the latest technologies in areas including 3D modelling and printing, augmented reality, virtual reality, gaming, animation, robotics and coding.

A range of activities will be on offer for visitors to get involved in, including demos of action-adventure video game Assassin's Creed and robot races with Sphero SPRK.

There will also be a masterclass on the history of animation with leading animation and visual effects company Tippett Studio, whose credentials include sequences in the Star Wars, Harry Potter and Twilight franchises. Visitors inspired by the talk can make their own Stop Motion animation films.

There will also be a 'Digital Village' created outside the Engine Shed. This will include an immersive reality walk-in dome pioneered by digital content producer Soluis. Taking place at The Engine Shed, Scotland's dedicated building conservation centre in Stirling, DigiFest will highlight Scotland as a global leader in digital innovation in the heritage sector.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for DigiFest are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
