Sky and Sir David Attenborough are helping the public get hands-on access to rare objects at London’s Natural History Museum. The interactive VR experience Hold the World features a 3D hologram of Sir David, which guides users to virtually handle fossils and offers his unique insight on each specimen.

Cutting-edge technology enables users to hold up, peer inside, tilt and look more closely at fossils, bones and skulls from the museum’s world-famous collection. Hold the World, which goes into production later this year, uses a combination of interactive video game technology and TV documentary. It represents the first time these technologies have been combined in this way.
