Learning with junaio, Samsung and British Museum

The Samsung Digital Discovery Centre, a partnership between the British Museum and Samsung, offers museum goers the opportunity to experience the museum’s collections using the latest digital technologies- technologies like junaio!

Developed by our Certified Developer goAugmented, the Gallery Explorer junaio channel is part of a history education project for 13-14 year-olds. Using Samsung Galaxy 7” Tabs, students scan AR markers around the galleries to find and collect virtual objects from different countries.  This is a wonderful use of junaio’s indoor positioning and navigation possibilities, and one of the first museums to implement it on such a scale. Check out the demonstration:

Museums are just waiting to be augmented. These generally massive structures are overflowing with augmentable content. When I was living in France, I visited the Louvre – just looking at the map gave me a mal de tête. We can take all of that information and load it directly into a junaio channel- exhibits, restrooms, galleries, restaurants etc. And almost any painting can be a tracking image – as we’ve seen in the past. Soon we might even have virtual tour guides that live in the museum, but can only be seen through smartphones or tablets, but will interact with you, answer questions, and help you navigate the museums.

I’m almost getting tired of saying this – but this is just further proof that the possibilities are nearly endless with junaio.

How would you augment a museum?
