Apple’s iBeacon Tech Brings Art Gallery To Life
Antwerp museums look to establish a network of data pushing devices inside their buildings.
Digital agency Prophets has created an iBeacon-powered mobile app for Rubens House in Antwerp. Meant to be as tool for visitors of the respectable museum, this prototype demonstrates how cutting-edge technology can enhance the overall art experience.
With hopes to create an intricate network of digital content inside the house, Prophets positioned iBeacon sensors in just about every nook and cranny. These stand-alone sensors are battery-powered and communicates via Bluetooth. Because of its small, wireless design, Beacons can be installed without any physical intervention in the historic structure of the building.
