Location-based communication about history does not currently take place in a larger community. We want to change that!
What it does
To expand the possibilities of museums, we have designed and built a digital platform that enables the exploration of culture on the streets within the city. Our goal is to encourage people to talk about history in a forum that lowers inhibitions through asynchronous communication while increasing the incentive by scattering collectible digital exhibits around the city. Therefore we provide a cultural digital geocaching platform with gamification.
How we built it
With teamwork :D. We also use Flutter as a platform independent user interface language and Dart as programming language. For the backend we use Docker and the Python framework flask combined with a SQLite database.
Challenges we ran into
Bring together different technologies into an amazing platform.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The platform independence of our project due to Flutter and Docker.
What we learned
Design, both UI and API. Learning about the opportunities of the digital future of museums. How to motivate citizens to learn about the history of their own city and bring museums into their daily life.
What's next for BadenHistory
Add custom tours with external links to other museums and online sources. Recommender system for similar exhibits. Rating system for exhibits and tours. Custom events and polls.
