The Museum of London gets NFC with help from Nokia
Something old, something new, that’s what you can expect to experience at the Museum of London from now on as NFC tag technology acts as a real world “read more” button on exhibits. Sometimes we sound like a broken record talking up how broad in scope the uses for NFC are, but on days like today when we see institutions carrying the gauntlet and putting their exhibits where their NFC phones are, it all becomes worthwhile. The London Museum has started to implement NFC tags to allow visitors with NFC capable phones to find out about exhibits and learn about what’s new and / or old.
Marketing Manager of the Museum of London, Vicky Lee shared, “NFC Technology has the potential to change how we interact with our visitors. By simply touching tags located throughout both our venues, visitors can delve deeper into London’s story in an immediate and engaging way, plus keep in touch with us by following the museum online.”
So, extended information, social engagement and a more immersive experience await visitors to the Museum of London from now on. Everyday we seem to have another announcement about a new NFC phone that is rumored, hitting a mobile network operator or is already on the market.
