There are four interactive kiosks at the Made In Penang museum. At two of these kiosks, you point your entrance ticket to the sensor, and it will project a three-dimensional image on the screen. The images are of Komtar and the Penang ferry. At the other two kiosks, you just need to stand near the screen, and you will see yourself wearing vivid coloured masks of Sichuanese opera.
