Lifetime Lab is situated in the Old Lee Road Waterwoks site in Cork City and houses water pumping technologies from the 1800s and 1900s. The centre focuses on energy consumption and generation of the past, present and future. It was requested that the visitor experience be enhanced with the use of multimedia technology.
Lifetime Lab, on the banks of the River Lee, is a unique attraction for visitors of all ages with its modern interactive exhibition, themed playground, beautifully restored buildings and equipment and scenic views over the River Lee. Lifetime Lab is a great venue for children. Schools groups can avail of Classroom Workshops or take a Tour of Lifetime Lab. Lifetime Lab approached MMID/Mirador in 2008 to manage the restoration of the Dutch-produced interactive installations (which consist of two life-size 'Teletubbies-like' educational machines) back to their original state and was asked to make some of the existing stations more user friendly. The restoration included electronics repairs, work on improving existing installations, graphic design and production of new interactive exhibits. In addition MMID/Mirador provided and fitted Lifetime labs with audio visual facilties as well as graphic panels with pushbutton triggers for visitor interactivity.
