Interaction Design Project – ‘Timelight’ prototype

 

This project was assembled for a UX module in university. The task was to implement a technology to any chosen museum so that the user experience was improved for visitors.

We chose to implement a path-lighting and barcode scanning system into the M-Shed warehouse in Bristol, where they house over 7,000 historical artefacts. The user would be guided by lights that would turn on with a button press so they become engaged with the artefacts. If they found a piece that interested them, they could scan the barcode of an item with one of the museum’s tablets and the app would respond with details of its history along with images and pictures (as can be seen in the YouTube video above). In our team, I was responsible for the creation and design of the app prototype, the logo and the poster.
