Flickr-Based Multitouch & Multiuser Collection Viewer

Using our Open Exhibits software, Ideum has created a new software program that makes creating an interactive photo collection viewer easy.

Our Open Exhibits educational software initiative recently released a new multitouch and multiuser Collection Viewer allowing visitors to browse large museum collections.  The software pulls images and their descriptions directly from “sets” in Flickr, making the collections easy to manage.

The software has customizable “docks” that allow it to be optimized for touch wall or multitouch table displays.  The software is free for educational use. The video below shows how the software works.

The example we developed pulls images from the Women in Science Flickr set posted by the Smithsonian (credit sicard). Open Exhibits is supported by the National Science Foundation.
