The South African Jewish Museum has a new interactive exhibit – a large touch screen Kiosk and application, custom designed by Formula D interactive.
The modern design of this Cape Town museum is renowned for its beautiful architecture and its state of the art galleries. Outside and inside shot of museum. Try to find on web.
Formula D’s latest addition to the museum is part of a gradual upgrade of their technology displays.
The iconic touch screen kiosk informs visitors about Jewish personalities who have contributed to the richly textured society that is South Africa.
Using the custom made touch application visitors of the museum select a person by flicking through a library of portraits.
They can also first select a category like art, business, sport or politics.
Once a visitor touches a portrait, a short biography and a multimedia gallery opens up.
The gallery allows for a number of video and image files and captions, which present the live and work of the respective personality.
In anticipation of a growing number of contributors featured in the app, Formula D designed a content management system, which allows for adding and editing of people and their information.
Formula D interactive designed the interactive display to complement the modern look of the museum using glass and stainless steel as the dominant materials.
The use of clean lines and elementary shapes in the design draws visitor attention to the touch screen and its content and not to the object.
After all, the stars of this beautiful exhibit are the extraordinary Jewish personalities who contributed to South African live and culture.
