Washington County Museum

To provide an engaging experience around the key things to see and do in Washington County, HexaGroup was selected to develop an interactive exhibit for the local Visitors Center. Expertise in museum exhibits and interactive technology made HexaGroup a logical choice.

The project presented some challenges. Due to the event-centric, dynamic, and seasonal nature of the content, it was essential for the kiosk to be completely up-to-date. Updating tools were critical to its success. With an innovative solution, HexaGroup decided to develop a website with the look and feel of an interactive kiosk. The team selected Google Chrome as the browser of choice, and designed a web-based HD interface at 1920x1080, controlled by HexaGroup’s CMS. Pushing the boundaries of web browsers to the limit, HexaGroup was able to make users feel as though they were playing with an interactive application — not simply browsing a website.
