AT&T Inc. will unveil an interactive exhibit Tuesday celebrating the anniversary of Alexander Graham Bell’s first telephone call on March 10, 1876.
“Journey of Innovation” is a digital, interactive exhibit that traces the history of communication from the first telephone to today’s mobile technology. The exhibit is at AT&T flagship store at 600 N. Michigan Ave.
“AT&T has a rich history of innovation and this new showcase captures some of AT&T’s most impactful contributions to society,” said Shelley Goodman, vice president and general manager of AT&T Illinois and Wisconsin. “This exhibit connects modern technologies to their past, and shows how innovation has improved lives throughout history.”
Visitors will use an AT&T tablet as a virtual tour guide while walking along a digital gallery wall. Some stories are told using augmented reality, factoids and touchscreens.
