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.
For the arrival of summer, the web version of the GuidiGO app is getting a complete makeover! Tours are now even more accessible thanks to a new responsive interface that is easier to use. The updated Web App includes two new exciting possibilities for users: an instant mobile experience on the go and Street View Tours for remote use…
With GuidiGO app for Google Project Tango, visitors know their exact position inside the museum. They can also be guided to the piece they want to see following an AR path superimposed on the floor, and discover the interpretation of a work of art in AR.
At GuidiGO, our objective is to help museums and heritage sites make their visitor experience more and more immersive and engaging. So it comes as no surprise that we are passionate about virtual reality and all of its promising possibilities (read our article on VR here). The GuidiGO platform is now compatible with Google Cardboard…
There’s always something brewing at GuidiGO. In fact, two new apps, one for the iPhone and one for the iPad, just appeared in the App Store. You can download them here and take a brief tour of the details below.
At the close of this school year, the prestigious town hall of Paris, district 4, hosted the Paris release of the Viewing Angles project. This unveiling followed five months of diligent work.
Back when the project was launched, its goal was to bring educational establishments and cultural institutions together. We can now see the success of this collaboration, which produced tours and cultural games accessible to all through tablets and computers.
For the first time in history, museumgoers will have the opportunity to enjoy a completely new experience using Google Glass, during the Velázquez exhibition at the Grand Palais, in Paris.
This exhibition will be the first of its kind, not only because Velázquez has never been featured in an exhibition in France before but also because visitors can experience it in a completely new way, through Google Glass.
