Vasamuseet, Samtidigt-Meanwhile Wikipedia touch table demo
December marked the opening of a new exhibition called Samtidigt/Meanwhile at the Vasa Museum, the second most visited museums in Sweden. During the year Wikimedia Sweden has worked with the museum producers in both a failed attempt to crowd source image search, a successful work in getting the museum to find PD-images from Wikimedia Commons to use, and last but not least helped with the wiki related parts in developing a really cool touch table. The table shows articles relevant to the exhibition on a map and lets visitors read the intro part of the article on the screen (in some selected languages) but also shows a QRpedia code to let the visitor se the whole article in their own language.
Two articles shown on the map. You can move and turn them around to be able to stand around the table.
The first part of the article about Miguel de Cervantes shown in Finnish, with the flags you can read the introduction in other languages and using the QRpedia code you can read the full article.
