INTERACTIVE MESSAGE BOARD
With the experience of using tablets and android box, Sengital R&D team had further developed a wireless communication between them in order to work out an interactive solution for a digital message board that allows visitor to write their feedback or signature after visiting the show instead of writing a questionnaire or put a post on the physical message board. Digital solution can allow science museum to store those messages digitally and automatically. A content management system is developed successfully.
Tablets were used in the showcase for the message leaving and drawing functionalities. The initial design of this exhibit is to turn “post it” or wishing tree ideas and drawings to a digital version. We are glad this arose interest from the visitors and reached a great number of people. According to the counting made by the Hong Kong Science Museum, there were a big number of messages left on the system.
The ‘Wildlife Photographer of the Year’ exhibition
The ‘Wildlife Photographer of the Year’ exhibition was presented until 1 September 2013. Visitors enjoyed those extraordinary pictures very much. The exhibition not only showcases the beauty of nature, but it also gives visitor a reminder of the fragility of nature. There is an e-book which introduces different wildlife animals or plants. Moreover, a newly-designed message board allowed visitors to write, draw and display message electronically.
