Virtual Reality and Van Gogh Collide - 

Technology is Turning Museums into a Booming Industry.

 

 

- Towards Tomorrow

Rapidly advancing technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics will impact human life in the near future. Conscious machines can evolve to enhance our minds and bodies, reorganize our family lives, and manage complex social and economic systems. This transformation will bring new opportunities and challenges. 

Facing tomorrow, museums now more than ever need to keep up with technological developments that will irrevocably change the way they interact with their visitors and manage their services. As technology revolutionizes art consumption, museums are seeking the largest number of visitors ever. From human augmentation to emotional machines and superintelligent algorithms, a range of new gadgets have been added to their collection, such as iPad-guided gallery tours, eye-tracking devices that track gaze, and symbol decoding software.

 

- Virtual Reality (VR)

Our generation grew up on video games. The goal is to make media that speak their language, for example, virtual reality (VR) is an incredible form of experiential storytelling. But the number of consumers able to use smart devices and the increasing computing power of those devices is staggering and will open up new possibilities. These new possibilities include technological innovations in invisible and conversational interfaces, and the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) into museums and cultural experiences. 

Virtual reality offers your visitors a new and engaging experience without taking up a lot of space in your museum. Visitors can virtually tour the museum, explore different time periods and locations, and play games using virtual reality technology. Part of what makes virtual reality exciting is that the technology is still relatively hard to come by because of the price and the space required to have your own virtual reality headset at home. Trying out this new innovative technique is a great way to attract new people to your museum and engage them in exciting ways.

 

- Immersive Exhibitions

Many museums deal with young people not participating in exhibitions because they are not as immersive as possible. Video walls solve this problem, allowing you to create immersive environments that immerse visitors in, as well as huge artwork displays or large touchscreen walls. Help younger visitors feel a greater connection to your exhibit by making them immersive.
