How can the individual museum experience be enriched by wearables? We explored this research question together with the University of Applied Arts in the EXHIBITION “handWERK. Tradiertes Können in der digitalen Welt” at the MAK (Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art).

Cultural education with smartwatches

The study took place over 3 days with 6 school classes. The young people – between 12- 15 years old and in the career orientation phase – tested the smartwatch app “What is my craft?” in the exhibition. To the question “Would you like to use a smartwatch app in the museum again?”, 81.7% answered “yes”.
