An interactive smartphone app for museums

From historical collections large and small, Culturebook brings together the planet’s heritage, documentation, interpretations and perspectives. This wealth of content is delivered in a single smartphone application for education and contribution. It is an interactive visual/audio tour guide for all museums in your pocket. The application consists of a functional user interface that demonstrates the overall concept. The main areas of demonstration are exhibit profiles, including links to multimedia such as related podcasts, videos and user content submissions. Content could potentially be personalised to different users based on interests, age and so on. The exhibits could be collated by the user to create a new synthesis and be shared via social media.
