The centerpiece for an interactive touch screen kiosk featured in the American Fur Company Store / Dr. Beaumont Museum on Mackinac Island, this exhibit includes a nine-chapter menu that tells the fascinating story of the world’s first direct studies of human digestion. In 1822, a young voyageur named Alexis St. Martin was wounded by an accidental gunshot in the American Fur Company Store.

Future Media produced the video and animations, recorded and synced the narration and programmed the touch screen.
