BioscopeIn figuring out how to bridge the gap between the virtual and the physical worlds and how to best present and publicize the project to the community, Kuetemeyer and Shetty drew inspiration from a travelling cinema device that is still used in remote villages in India today – the Bioscope.

Though the bioscope is defined in dictionaries as an early movie projector, in India it has been known as a wooden box, the interior of which has pictures that can be viewed through four circular holes. They were excited by the symbolism of the bioscope as a dream making machine of the past as well as the community viewing interaction and experience it fosters.

To launch the Time Lens project they created a solar powered Bioscope with 4 interactive iPad screens and viewing portals.
