The New Media Museum collects and preserves digital media artifacts and history. In addition, the museum maintains a “living archive” of personal computing hardware, operating systems, utilities and productivity software as well as applications in areas such as education, information services, hypermedia, virtual worlds and extended reality (XR). Finally, the museum is especially focused on preserving functional demos of technologies that did not succeed in the “marketplace,” but insiders and historians tend to agree held unrealized potential.
