In an effort to adapt to the “new normal,” museums and heritage sites have had to seek out creative solutions; experimenting with and embracing new ways of connecting with their audience remotely…
Throughout the summer, a new Augmented Reality experience created by GuidiGO will be available on iPads at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, Texas. The experience presents a virtual model of NASA’s Curiosity Rover in action within a real-life reproduction of a Martian landscape.
GuidiGO AR Composer has been redesigned from the ground up and is now available for iOS. It is specially designed to make it easy for museums and heritage sites to create life-size Augmented Reality experiences anchored in a physical space.
A few days ago, I found myself in Trento, Italy for the launch of Go!Muse – an Augmented Reality app we designed for the MUSE museum. On the day of the launch, over one thousand visitors came with their families to check out the new app. It was the ideal opportunity to confirm that the app would be as magical as we had hoped…
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.
I spent last weekend at the park with my two boys, ages 4 and 6. The place was full of excited, giggling children running every which way, and none of us wanted the day to end.
I caught myself wondering what the magic was about parks that made children never want to leave…and why they don’t tend to feel the same way when we take them to the museum.
The answer might seem obvious: at the park, children can play. But what is the psychology behind why they often prefer a fun excursion to the park over a visit to the museum?…
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.
