NA Showcases "Memory of the Nation" Through Modern Interactive Screens and Digital Cameras

NA "Memory of the Nation" was the jewel of Sheikh Zayed Festival's crown.  This year, NA presented historical and cultural information recorded on wide screens, using modern digital technology.  NA screens chronicled UAE history, and displayed its own progress and creativity.  NA presented most innovative ideas that were developed in 2016.  NA's "Memory of the Nation" wing simulated Al Muwaiji Fort in Al Ain, and in it, NA presented visitors with their photographs as souvenirs as they arrive to the "Memory of the Emirates" corner.  All the modern digital technologies utilized in the wing express adherence to UAE government's policy and the vision of the leadership to upgrade towards the E-Government.

As soon as the visitors enter the gate to "Memory of the Nation", they come across a huge interactive screen that introduces them to the ten halls within the wing.  The touch screen presents detailed information to visitors about the contents of each hall.

NA devoted a space within the wing for the smart application of Al Bufalah family tree, which is displayed on a huge interactive touch screen.  The family tree contains information about hundreds of personalities beginning with Yas up until the grandchildren of sons of the late Shaikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

Al Bufalah family tree smart application orients the visitors about most distinguished personalities, particularly those who ruled the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, with any available pictures.  Rulers that developed Abu Dhabi, and made history.  The family tree displays information about personalities that made Abu Dhabi the strongest force on the coast.  The smart application orients today's generation and the future generations with Abu Dhabi's rulers and shows the lasting deeply rooted achievements they made.  The wisdom of our past leadership and their vision has influenced the present of the country.  NA's mission is to raise the awareness of the public and enhance their sense of identity and loyalty.

In one corner of "Memory of the Emirates", visitors can get their photographs taken with a historical background.  The visitors may have their digital photos sent to Instagram or a personal email.  Visitors may also request a hard copy to keep as a souvenir of their visit.

Another digital camera, (selfie 360VR), is stationed in the wing's courtyard for visitors to use to take their photographs with Al Muwaiji Fort in the background.  The digital photograph can be sent to the visitor's email.  A visitor may choose between a background of the wing with NA logo in the middle, or a panoramic view of the fort.
