Idea

Create an app for the Battleship Iowa (BB-61) that would completely transform a visit on the museum ship an unforgettable experience.

Solution

The Battleship Iowa App will transform your museum experience into something you will never forget. Key features of the app include:

  • audio tours based on your location in the ship
  • videos that dive deeper into the fascinating history or fun facts about the ship
  • a behind-the-scenes, VIP look at the ship itself
  • an augmented reality feature to help really bring the museum’s masterpieces to life

This app also helps you navigate your way throughout the ship -- even allowing you to create a custom itinerary based on your preferences or setting your audio tour to another language to enjoy your tour in your native tongue. As you approach each area of the ship, information related to items pops up automatically. Don’t have time to read up on all the near information? Use the app’s “favorite” function to save items to learn more about later.

Technologies used

Advanced iBeacon hardware and software were used to create this multi-functional app, including a combination of Bluetooth beacons inside the museum and geolocation technology to detect exactly where each visitor is located. The culmination of these technologies gives visitors a highly personalized and magical museum experience that surpasses all others.
