De Verhalenkar

Interactive installation for digitizing memories


To preserve memories of times long gone, the Zuiderzeemuseum wanted to provide its visitors with a user-friendly tool that can record their stories and save them online. This resulted in the Verhalenkar, a cabin with a screen inside, running a custom application that guides the user through the recording process. The resulting videos can be seen here

My Work

Driebit was asked to provide the technology for this installation. And I, as an employee, created the user interface by means of an Android application running on a tablet. The app controls the built-in camera and microphone to record video. Once finished, the resulting video clips were automatically uploaded to YouTube.
