For the new exhibition “Still & Art”, the Clyfford Still Museum in Denver combines the display of Still’s artworks with digital reproductions of other artists’ works using augmented reality. Using an app designed by GuidiGO, through a partnership with Google and RYOT, the Museum offers the opportunity for visitors to compare and contrast Still’s works with virtual paintings from museums across the world, as if they were also hanging on the gallery walls.
Lumin content was created by the Detroit Institute of Arts’ interpretive team leveraging GuidiGO’s augmented reality platform, AR Composer, built specifically for Tango. A pilot of the device took place January –April 2017. During the pilot evaluators conducted user testing and observations. Here are some of the results.
GuidiGO is pleased to announce we are a recipient of a 2017 Gold MUSE Award for Lumin, the AR application of the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA).

After its successful foray into the world of augmented reality (AR) and 3D wayfinding with the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) mobile tour, GuidiGO has now brought Google’s Tango technology to the National Museum of Singapore.
On January 25, the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) has premiered a mobile tour called Lumin that uses Google’s Tango technology to provide visitors with new, in-depth ways to engage with the DIA’s renowned collection.
The DIA is the first art museum in the world to integrate this 3D wayfinding and smartphone augmented reality (AR) technology into a public mobile tour, leveraging GuidiGO’s new augmented reality platform, AR Composer.
The RMN-Grand Palais won first place in the “Virtual and Augmented Reality/Immersion” category for their exhibition entitled “Sites Eternels” (Eternal Sites). We are particularly pleased with this news as GuidiGO created the Tango app used for this exhibition in collaboration with the Google Cultural Institute and Iconem.
We are excited to announce the release of our new Augmented Reality product AR Composer which runs on the Google Tango platform. We have already had the opportunity to showcase this technology at several museums.
GuidiGO AR Composer opens up incredible new opportunities for museums and cultural sites, as they can now design their own AR experiences in just a few simple steps, and make them available on site or for remote use by schools and other educational institutions.
We are excited to announce a new feature for interacting with and exploring cultural sites using Sketchfab 3D reproductions of works.
