Folkwang Museum Experience / Service Application

Folkwang Museum Experience
Folkwang Museum Experience

Indoor positioning technologies like “Bluetooth Low Energy” allow to locate smartphones in buildings and extend the common map service into buildings. But without a meaningful experience it there is no use of this technologies.

So how might we enhance the experience of the visitor by use of the
digital world without distracting from the real experience?

The application brings the power of infomedia directly where it’s most requested. It enables the user to bookmark artwork or digital content to explore it later in detail. On the other side, it enables the museum to extend the visitor experience and have a longer interaction with them.
