High Fidelity App Prototype
Museum Stamp Collector
Museum Stamp Collector is an app that aims to increase visitor's engagement in museums. The app encourages visitors to learn by generating short routes according to users' preferences (areas or art movement). Each journey is designed to learn about one artist in the museum. After completion of each route, visitors will earn a stamp as a reward.
Museum Detective is an app that aims to increase public awareness of decolonization. Aside from traditional visual analysis, the app engaged visitors to learn through the multi-sensory experience. Visitors become detectives in museums, who will evaluate clues given from the app and submit the answers they have through their reasoning. By using the app, visitors not only will be more engaged with the items on display but also will learn about how the objects move around the world.
