Learn More About Experience Technology
Experience technologies are technologies that create new types of involvement and experiences for guests and participants. This goes for anything from guests at theme parks, attractions, events to food festivals, shopping malls and the retail industry in general.
Experience technologies can be based on anything from mobile technologies to portable technologies – the so-called wearables – to fixed or physical digital installations. Examples of experience technologies are:
- Beacons, smartwatches, biosensors, digital or interactive installations based on motion sensors.
- Variations of different immersive screen technologies, Augmented and Virtual Reality, holograms and world building through sound, that all emphasize the atmosphere or experience in a given physical environment. Many of these kinds of technologies have a magical effect on the surroundings as they continue to become more and more invisible. The effects are not at first accredited the technologies due to the integration of the used technology.
- The content of experience technology is usually a guide to inform guests, entertain them or support learning. The use of these technologies stretches all the way from service information to creating worlds of experiences and wonder you want to get lost in.
