Abstract

The purpose of this project was to assist Museums Victoria in making the visitor experience more interactive using voice-activated technology (VAT). After researching digital technologies, we designed prototypes of voice applications, user testing them, and gathering staff feedback. We piloted a VAT prototype in the Phar Lap exhibit and developed additional concepts for museum trivia and adventure games. We propose that Museums Victoria pursue a one-stop mobile application housing these new tools and more for visitors.
