Augmented and Virtual Reality for Museums and Art Galleries

Benefits

The most straightforward way is to use it to add explanations of pieces. This means visitors will get more information when they view exhibitions using AR. Museums could even use it to display digital versions of artists next to their work. These 3D personas are then able to provide narration.

AR gives an opportunity to add a third dimension to displays, bringing objects or scenes to life. There are already many institutions around the world using AR. These projects bring something new to existing collections and attract wider audiences. Here are some interesting ways that museums are using augmented reality.

This is a great example

The National Gallery in London looked to take the collections of the National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Royal Academy of Arts beyond their walls of the museum with an Augmented reality experience which members of the public could access through their phones. Users used an app to activate the artworks which were marked with QR codes on busy streets in central London.

Opportunities

This technology can capture people’s attention and keep their focus on exhibitions for longer. Before opening their AR installation, the AGO did a survey. It discovered the average visitor to the museum’s collections spent on average only 2.31 seconds in front of each image. In a busy modern life where visitors are not always inclined to linger, museums can use AR technology to reach out and grab their attention.

Augmented Reality Gamification, with the Geolocated Point of Interest

Benefits

Augmented reality (AR) and gamification are two technologies that businesses are starting to use more and more to engage customers. AR enhances digital content with interactive, real-world elements, while gamification uses game mechanics like points, badges, and leaderboards to make non-game activities more engaging.

Opportunities

Here are a few examples of how businesses are using both augmented reality and gamification to engage their customers. Keep in mind that the best approach will vary depending on the project or game you’re creating, so Captivatar will help you to experiment and see what works best for your particular project.

Generate more traffic to local shops.

Make your local shops sell more by generating more traffic to them.

It’s important to keep things interesting by regularly introducing new challenges and rewards. This will help keep customers engaged and motivated to continue participating in your game.
