The State of the Art in Museum Handhelds in 2003
Nancy Proctor, Antenna Audio Inc., United Kingdom
Chris Tellis, Antenna Audio Inc., USA

Session: Handheld

This paper examines the rapidly changing state of museum handhelds from both a technology and content perspective. The paper will also discuss the component parts for a successful museum installation: content, user interface, applications, form factor, positioning and the challenges to integrating these components. Specific examples will be demonstrated from the 2002 Tate Modern installation and the authors' own research.
