Using smart objects in exhibitions

This session in based on case studies where smart objects were introduced in exhibitions, building a link between real objects and the digital world. These were developed as part of the meSch project, bringing together universities, developers and (science) museums to develop smart objects and tools for implementing these in exhibitions, enhancing the visitor experience.

During the workshop, participants will explore scenarios for the use of smart objects in a museum/science centre environment. How is this done? What tools can be used to ‘programme’ smart objects? What is the visitor experience of entering the Internet of Things like?

The workshop will start with a short introduction on the project and the meSch toolkit, editing facilities and a short demonstration of smart devices. Evaluation results will be discussed briefly. Then participants will work in smaller groups on some of their own solutions/ideas for implementing smart objects and finally share these with the group at large.
