Alton Brazell was known for his larger than life antique tool collection at the Bayer Museum of Agriculture here in Lubbock, Texas. When visitors looks at the tool collection, many of the tools they see might seem rare or odd even though in their time were quiet common and practical. We were hired to make an interactive kiosk to help educate younger generations of some of these less known tools in our modern era. Users can select tools based on numbering and letting system and view close ups of the tools along with historical facts about when and how these tools were used.
The National Ranching Heritage Center has a large collection of buildings on their land that you can tour and see. The staff recognized that sometimes limitations arose that kept people from experiencing the tour such as weather, disabilities, or events. To accommodate these situations, they asked us to design an interactive kiosk that provided a virtual tour that could be viewed in their main lobby area. Using touchscreen technology, visitors can browse through all the buildings on display while reading articles, viewing photos and listing to audio about each structure’s history. The project is also translated in Spanish to increase accessibility and user-friendliness.
