The Engine Wall is an interactive touch screen and audio installation for the Harley-Davidson Museum that teaches the lineage of the historically significant Harley-Davidson engines.

This installation tracks the development of Harley-Davidson engines from the early days of the 1903 Atmospheric Single with full fidelity engine sounds and user-controlled display.

For each engine, users can see detail specifications, learn about its history, and see all related bikes that utilized the engine.

Visitors can trigger the loud rumble of each engine, with low frequency speakers mounted behind the physical engines in the wall.

Project Accolades:

The Today Show “Harley-Davidson Museum Preview with Tiki Barber,” 2008
Los Angeles Times “Harley-Davidson Museum is hog heaven,” 2008
MSNBC “Harley-Davidson revs up for museum’s opening,” 2008
