As part of the celebration of the 130th anniversary of the founding of the 1st Croatian Voluntary Fire Brigade in Varaždin, on June 19, 1994, the newly built building of the Croatian fire fighting museum was opened. Over the years, the number of exhibits grew, and there was a need to transform the building into an adequate exhibition space. Therefore, the museum decided to set up a multimedia kiosk that would show the interesting and rich tradition of Croatian firefighting through modern applications.
The Croatian fire fighting museum offers visitors an insight into the history of the Croatian Fire Brigade, through a presentation of the technical development of equipment and the progress of the fire brigade activities over the years. Today, the museum spreads over 400 m2 of space on two floors of a newly built building, and in the museum's holdings there are about 1,200 items.
In order to present the Croatian fire fighting museum as a center for presenting Croatian firefighting history, a decision was made to set up a multimedia kiosk that would engage visitors with educational and entertainment content.
Deliver a quality visually impressive, and at the same time cost-effective solution in the form of an interactive kiosk that will be well noticed and accepted by museum 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 study the rich tradition of Croatian firefighting, develop visual content and design user interfaces.
One PandoPad® WALL 42 “unit located in the museum space was delivered. Finally, the PandoPad® Manager system and the PandoPad® Applications package were delivered as a central place to manage all content.
Visitors have the opportunity to study the rich tradition of the Croatian economy with PandoPad interactive applications. It is possible to view various photos of famous firefighters, see firefighters in action, and play various games such as quizzes, puzzles, coloring books, etc.
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.
