The proof of the pudding is in the eating, as the saying goes. If that’s the case, then the case studies are a meSch meal of many courses, serving the fine cuisine cooked up by the various meSch work packages. Now most of the building blocks of the [...]
eCultValue has chosen meSch technology for validation in Living Labs. If you want to try out meSch technology in your own institution, then this is your chance! The call for proposals is open until September 10th, 2014.
The meSch project is grounded on principles of co-design: the participation of designers, developers and cultural heritage professionals into the process of creation and evaluation as equal partners. In order to sustain these co-design activities, the UC3M team is developing a software kit called CoDICE, (COdesigning DIgital Cultural [...]

If we want to create an authoring tool that allows cultural heritage professionals to create adaptive digital content that augments and personalises the museum experience for different visitors, we need to gain [...]

The meSchcases are a series of augmented, networked display cases that were created for use in Museon. They were created as part of a collaboration between Museon and SHU for deployment during the Ecsite 2014 conference. This post will cover the implementation and deployment of the meSchcases.
After building the first set of prototypes, the next challenge is to test the prototypes in a different surrounding, charged with different content. MeSch consortium partner Museo della Guerra chose the Companion Novel prototype to adapt to their needs and content.
meSch had a massive presence at the 8th International Conference on Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction, short TEI. Team members and associated researchers from Sheffield Hallam, University of Strathclyde, University of Stuttgart, University Carlos III Madrid and the Fondazione Bruno Kessler attended TEI 2014.
The project's first annual review meeting with EU project reviewers took place on March 24th and 25th 2014 at the Allard Pierson Museum, Amsterdam. Having already had a long review preparation weekend on the 22nd and 23rd of March, it was a very demanding few days for all [...]
