Tagbin uses experiential technology to make museums come alive

Usually, museums gather dust. History snoozes inside their confines, instead of coming vibrantly alive. A Gurugram-based start-up is working on changing that. It is using experiential technology to upgrade museums — with ‘talking’ walls and pillars, ‘time-travelling’ freedom fighters and installations that yank you into battlefields, to face firing cannons and armed cavalry.
