In Sankt Pölten, Austria, just west of Vienna, at St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences, a Digital Media Technologies class developed a multitouch application that explores pre-historic rock art in northern Italy.
The app, Playing Valcamonica, was developed using Ideum’s open source multitouch development framework Open Exhibits. Employing multitouch gestures, users of the app can explore 3.5 gigapixel images of the pre-historic rocks of Valcamonica and engage in mini-games that provide further information about the rock art and encourage interaction.
Playing Valcamonica was installed for the PITOTI exhibit at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan, Italy and was displayed from October 1 – November 4, 2012.
For more information on Playing Valcamonica see student Martin Grubinger’s website.
