We are excited to announce that Cuseum’s CEO & Founder Brendan Ciecko will be speaking at Augmented World Expo 2018! Held in Santa Clara from May 30th-June 1st, the conference is the world’s #1 AR+VR conference and expo. AWE takes a look at how XR (AR, VR, and MR) can be utilized across all industries and how companies and organizations can avoid being left behind by this rapidly evolving technology.
San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) has debuted their new, Cuseum-powered app! The app features several self-guided tours with rich audio content, as well as visitor information and maps. Additionally, if visitors prefer not to follow a tour, they can browse the Museum on their own and search for content on the app via stop numbers. This effort is generously supported by Bloomberg philanthropies, and has allowed SFMOMA to engage and educate visitors in a new and dynamic way!
There is a growing discussion around how AR can be used to elevate the museum experience and bring exhibitions to life. PSFK, a leading trend reporting publication and authority on consumer experience, reports on the topic in the piece “How Augmented Reality is Changing the Museum Experience.”
Dan Sullivan, head of Growth & Partnerships at Cuseum, recently spoke at MIT Museum’s “Hacking the Museum,” which was part of the larger Cambridge Science Festival that took place from April 13-22. The event brought together leading minds from across industries to “talk about and demo museum APIs and collections databases with museum hackers” and to look at how technology like AR can be leveraged in the museum space.
Cuseum was recently featured in Wired, a leading technology news publication, in an article that explores the growing role of augmented reality in museums, and how it can be used to engage visitors and drive creativity. Additionally, the use of AR in museums illustrates how technology has the potential to “shake up” the museum world, and bring institutions into the digital age in a way that will speak to a larger audience.
