Scenario

With the Masscope, the user can explore the museum within going inside. He can see a overview of the collections.

In practice, the user look into a periscope staying on the roof of the museum, without imagine what he will see inside. When he look, he see a view in more or less180° degree of one floor from the museum. The periscope moves and then he can see more left or right.

Furthermore, there is a grip that make the possibility to change the floor. So the user can explore all the museum (even the atelier or the storage).

Objectives :

The « problem » at the MAS was that a lot of people go to the roof (where there is a beautiful view on the city), without going inside the museum itself.

We first thought about the viewer you find on the touristic places. But after (a lot of) conversations, periscope seems to be more logical to going down in the museum. And that makes also a link with the port of Antwerpen.

Of course, the user can’t see all the collections and maybe this overview will encourage him to see more and visit the museum. But to complete this goal, our prototype needs to be joined by something or someone who sells tickets on the roof. Because somebody who is on the roof doesn’t go downstairs to buy a ticket then get up again.

Or maybe the user will not going inside the museum after testing the Masscope and it will be a fun experience to him after all ! 😉
