As part of the Interreg V-A Slovenia-Croatia Cross-Border Cooperation Program, the city of Labin has launched the "Mine Tour" project to renovate Šoht, a tall steel tower that has become a symbol of the city and its inhabitants over the years. Part of the project was providing the tower with interactive applications that would provide visitors with useful information about this cultural heritage.
Mine Tour creates a cross-border link between the city of Labin and the city of Litija, which are connected by a common mining past. Technical mining heritage in Labin is supplemented with natural mining heritage in Litija. In this way, visitors can enjoy a rich experience above and below the ground. By visiting both locations, visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the rich cultural, architectural and industrial heritage of the mine in Labin, as well as the natural heritage of the underground parts of the mine in Litija.
In order to present a rich mining history in a more modern way the city of Labin decided to enrich the base of the Šoht tower with interactive applications as part of the "Mine Tour" project.
Deliver a quality visually impressive and at the same time cost-effective solution in the form of an interactive applications that will be well noticed and accepted by tower visitors.
The solution needed to be equipped with a package of centrally managed multimedia applications, and in the creative part of the project it was necessary to develop visual content and design user interfaces.
With the application of our products: PandoPad® Manager, PandoPad® Applications and PandoPad interactive unit, all interactive services necessary for informing and presenting the cultural heritage of the Šoht tower have been realized. The multimedia solution is centrally managed, and allows administrators to easily update the content at any time.
The unique PandoPad interactive unit installation in the rough and intentionally undecorated industrial space further contribute to the experience of the place where the miners once operated.
The interactive unit contains a set of PandoPad applications that provide an overview of various albums, brochures, and entertainment content for the youngest.
PandoPad® Quiz is an ideal way to prepare interactive quizzes. Some of the features include the possibility of asking different number of questions, multiple-choice questions, gauge the time needed to respond, and the presentation of the best results.
In this example, we see the Geolocator app, which instead of offering answers to questions in text form, requires players to answer by tapping the exact position on the geo map. The characteristics of such applications provide the possibility of a different number of questions, the possibility of entering more possible answers, the timer required for answers, the display of results, etc.
In this example, we see the PandoPad® eCard Selfie application through which users can select one of the offered images, insert a photo of their face and send a virtual / digital postcard using the integrated e-mail system.
Today, Šoht is one of the most beautiful monuments of the rich mining past of the Labin area, and with its renovation and a touch of multimedia, it will have not only historical, but also tourist value.
