Smart app kit designed to give visitors an immersive experience at cultural and artistic attractions in Italy.
Exhi+ is a toolkit available to cultural heritage organisations that allows them to offer a more interactive, enjoyable, and cutting-edge experience. The tools are simple and familiar to use for managers, with live on-site content instantly updateable from a Web interface.
User Experience designer
User interface designer
We were a team made of User experience designers, developers, art historia and grapich designers, my duties were:
-Design a modular interface and its interactions for a touchscreen totem,
-Design a GUI for a interactive wall projection and
-Design a modular furniture.
Exhi + was designed to allow small exhibition realities with a limited budget to give to their visitors experiences through new technologies
We wanted give to the small exbhitions a tool to enhace their visitors experience, so we designed a kit that we called exhi+ App, Exhi+ smarthplaces and exhi+ web, all of them upgrated automatically from single a content managment
The main goal was design somenthing modular so the exhibition place could persolanized based on their needs and upgrade the content by someone with a basic IT knowledge.
EXHI + APP
EXHI + SMARTPLACES
EXHI + WEB
An app for smart phones and tablets that helps visitorsenjoy exhibitions through the use of indoor and outdoor technologies, image recognition and augmented reality to improve the user experience.
Specially designed museum installations allow for a high level of customisation on a budget that is realistic for the cultural heritage industry. Designed to abstract typical user interactions, the installations are guaranteed to be customisable and applicable in a diverse range of locations.
A portal for a broad selection of services for the visitors of cultural heritage and archeological sites with advanced options such as ticketing, and a private area. The system is also a CMS that allows the managing institutions to share the data on different platforms

Every exhibit is different so are their necessities, to make it modular as possible I took in exam different expositions to do a detailed study of the different types of information that cultural heritage sites make available to their visitors
The content analysis highlighted the following areas:
-Exhibition -Maps -Repository -Projects -Even -Point of interest -About -Activities -News -Workshops
The above list can be merged by correlation into four categories. For every category there are further subcategories in order to prevent confusion between the contents. The categories are as follows:

The Front Desk module is comprised of a physical stand and a hardware/software component. The structural component consists of modular blocks that can be assembled according to the dimensions required by the museum curator or exhibition designer. The final design of the stands aims to be as neutral as possible to adapt to different kinds of environments.
An interactive wall projection entertains users whilst encouraging them to explore the exhibit. Users can enjoy 3D environments using their own bodies as 'controllers' as the projection responds to their natural actions. Various proposed designs were examined to find the best combination of sensor and CGI technology that would allow users to explore a 3D reconstruction of the cultural site. The projection allows visitors to take part in activities such as skill-based games in order to consolidate their learning and provide a memorable experience of the trip.
