Now, there is an opportunity for children to find out about the tidal flats ecosystem with more fun and benefits. D&P Corporation (www.dnpbooks.com, CEO: Lee Yun-ju), a VR/AR contents specialist located in Digital Contents Company Development Support Center is proposing a new direction for “AR contents and system platform commercialization” as the mobile AR demo service installed in Muan Ecological Tidal Flats Science Center is receiving attention from the visitors.
The company developed this “live demo learning service” to place more attention to the organisms living in the tidal flats. By converging AR technology to the tidal flats organisms exhibition, it provides information on the tidal flats organisms and helps develop creativity and sentimentality with AR games with step-by-step missions. Director Jang Seong-hun of the Development Team of D&P Corporation said, “We have developed various UI/UX design and program for children of all ages.” This company has placed tablet PC in the demo hall so that the children can easily access AR contents, adding convenience for them.
D&P Corporation is building not only AR contents but also system platform in Muan Ecological Tidal Flats Science Museum. “We have completed converging AR contents to the exhibited items in last March,” Director Jang said. He also added, “We are going to complete our AR-based system platform by this December to make the environment to collect and analyze big data.” Once the platform is complete, the company will be able to identify the needs of the visitors by using the big data and provide tailored service from 2020.
Jang said the goal of the company is to commercialize the AR contents and system platform. He quoted, “Our first case was Muan Ecological Tidal Flats Science Center. We will use all of our technology development capabilities and planning and design abilities to make the AR demo service business successful. Based on this experience, I would like to supply our AR contents and system platform to every marine tidal flats exhibitions in Korea.” The long-term goal of D&P Corporation is to commercialize the AR contents and system platform to Korean and foreign agencies that provide exhibition services to the demo halls, science centers and history museums.
