Newsletter | June 2015
The first meSch enhanced exhibition is a fact! ‘The Hague and the Atlantic Wall – War in the City of Peace’, now on display at the Dutch Museon in The Hague, is the first exhibition ever that has been realized with fully integrated meSch technology – thus with partly 3D printed replicas of museum objects that have been enhanced with sensors to create a smart interactive environment.

In this newsletter you'll read all about the exhibition and it's realization. Want to help us make it even better? Read more about it in our call for testers. Apart from a lot of exciting news about this exhibition, this 3rd newsletter mentions some reading tips (in which meSch was mentioned!) and some information about CoDICE, a mobile platform created by meSch partners tending a bridge between software engineering and design thinking.

Enjoy!
meSch progress | First smart exhibition

Why do we use smart replicas in the museum?

On April 10th, 2015, the first meSch enhanced exhibition was opened at Museon, a Dutch museum and partner in meSch. ‘The Hague and the Atlantic Wall – War in the City of Peace’ is the first exhibition ever that has been realized with fully integrated meSch technology – thus with partly 3D printed replicas of museum objects that have been enhanced with sensors to create a smart interactive environment.

Beyond the audio guide: why we use earpieces and projections

The first blog post was about Museon's expectations with regards to the use of smart replicas. This time we will learn why and how sound and projections were used in the meSch showcases at the exhibition ‘The Hague and the Atlantik Wall. City of War and Peace’.

After the visit: Will a personalized exhibition souvenir lead to user generated content?

The first two blogs were about Museon´s expectations with regards to the use of smart replicas and the use of sound and projections in the exhibition. In this last blog Museon will focus on visitors adding their own content and the personalized data souvenir that will be generated for each visitor after their visit to the exhibition. The writer highlights why they included the personalized component and what Museon expects from the user generated content.
