The loupe: a tool to explore the stories behind museum pieces. This video shows a prototype developed by Waag Society for the meSch project. The project meSch (Material EncouterS with digital Cultural Heritage) explores new ways to let people hear the stories behind heritage objects directly and immediately, in this way enriching the experience of European cultural heritage.
Within this project, our co-design method is a key element: we develop and evaluate the tools and services with the public, curators, artists and designers in an iterative process.
The meSch project (2013-2017) receives funding from the European Community’s Seventh Framework Programme ‘ICT for access to cultural resources’ (ICT Call 9: FP7-ICT-2011-9) under the Grant Agreement 600851.
