By using ultra sound positioning patented technology, Sengital (Mother company of Senmedia) developed a mobile app interacting with the exhibits that allow visitor to listen a story telling by Hong Kong Repertory Theatre about different Dunhuang stories. Both audio and animation with text will be played by the mobile app. This is the first interactive storytelling app with audio guide function for museum in Hong Kong. This work received a honorable recognition of Gold Prize of HKICT award 2014.
It is an audio guide with Indoor Positioning System making use of Wi-Fi, iBeacon and Ultrasound technologies. Visitors can enjoy having their own docent throughout their visit by using this app. The app will detect which technologies supported by the user’s smart devices and select the most appropriate ones automatically.
