Are you curious about how interactive technology can bring memories of the past to life? Then try out "Reminisce" at Bunratty Folk Park!
Researchers at the Interaction Design Centre have developed a new interactive experience, "Reminisce", which will allow visitors of Bunratty Folk Park in Co. Clare to discover, share and contribute to personal memories linked to buildings, traditions and ways of life of Ireland's past. "Reminisce" will engage visitors in a quest for memories and mementoes to add value to their experience of the cottages and activities on display at the Park.
The IDC is a multidisciplinary research group in the Dept. of Computer Science and Information Systems at the University of Limerick, focused on the design, use and evaluation of information and communications technologies from a human-centred design perspective: our research is focused on enhancing and supporting people's activities and is grounded on the context of the users' experience. The IDC has conducted extensive research on the use of ICTs in museums and exhibitions during the past 10 years, with successful installations at The Hunt Museum, Shannon Airport and Limerick’s Milk Market.
"Reminisce" is part of a research project exploring the utility and potential of technologies such as smart phones, augmented reality and location-based services in outdoor exhibition sites, and it has been supported by Failte Ireland and the University of Limerick Seed Funding initiative.
"Reminisce" is easy to use, doesn't require any specialised equipment and is completely free. It will be available for trials at Bunratty Folk Park from the 25th to the 27th of August 2010.
If you would like to try out "Reminisce", please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, or get in touch through our Facebook page or Twitter
