GIFT app testing in Brighton Museum

This is a legacy story from an earlier version of our website. It may contain some formatting issues and broken links.

Back in the summer we hosted Portslade based artists Blast Theory in Brighton Museum.

With the support of the University of Nottingham’s Mixed Reality Lab, they spent three days testing an experimental new smartphone app named GIFT, to create virtual ‘gifts’ for friends based on our collections.

Blast Theory have recently released a video which shows how the app was used in Brighton Museum.

Blast Theory have also released an album of photos from the project on Flickr, and you can learn more about the project on their website.

While GIFT is still a prototype, I hope to having further chats with Blast Theory in the New Year about how this might develop, and whether this could find a home in Brighton Museum.
