The multimedia wall in the tourism office in Cape Town allows the visitors to get a new and far more animated version of the guide book or the tourist brochure. The visitors can activate animations of attractions in the area, and the sceneries are illustrated and text information is also displayed. Multiple visitors can play at the same time. The installation helps the visitors to plan their day in Cape town.
The video goes behind the screen and explains the technology.
Big and interactive screens are increasingly used in tourism, in order to create experience, animate and inform. For example the Maze Funhouse in Chicago has installed a interactive floor for children. The floor animates the fire of Chicago and involves the kids in the firefighting.
