Computers help us design safer cars, diagnose disease, and battle Orcs. They manage our business by day and entertain us at night. Smartphones can hail a cab, send a text, or play a tune. All thanks to software. Software enables computers, tablets, even appliances to touch and transform nearly every aspect of daily life. Our devices brim with extraordinary potential. Software unlocks that potential.
We’re celebrating software with the opening of our new major exhibition, Make Software: Change the World!
Make Software explores the history, impact, and technology behind seven software applications that have transformed our lives, including MRI, MP3, Car Crash Simulation, Texting, Wikipedia, Photoshop, and World of Warcraft. It presents new ways of thinking about software, uncovering its storied past and its current impact all the while encouraging viewers to imagine a world where almost anything is possible because of software. Make Software comprises 6,000 square feet of interactive exhibition space, anchored by a software lab that enables visitors of all ages to understand software and the concepts of programming through multimedia interactive stations.
