The Belfast & Titanic Interactive Trail

Sunday, 9 December 2007

The video is promotion for the Belfast and Titanic Interactive trail, which is offered at Belfast. Produced by Awakin Productions based in Northern Ireland. Awakin’s managing director John Bastard was at mscapeFest07 and told me about this project, in which the Node Explorer is part of the multi-media system:

“Belfast City Council and Northern Ireland Tourist Board have launched the world’s first interactive multi-media digital tourism trail – and, appropriately, it is based around the city’s most famous product, ‘Titanic’.

The ‘Belfast Titanic Trail’ uses the latest GPS-based technology, the Node Explorer, to take visitors ‘back to the future’ – leading them on a tour of the city sites associated with the Titanic story, from the grounds of City Hall to Queen’s Island, finishing by presenting them with a vision of how Titanic Quarter will look.

Using a portable, robust media player, which is both user-friendly and ultra-modern, the Node Explorer – being used for the first time in Belfast – uses a combination of the latest computer technology, still images, video footage, dramatic reconstructions, text and audio clips to take users on a fully interactive trip through time – telling the story of the mighty Titanic and the people associated with her.”

Stourhead (Node) Explorer

Sunday, 2 December 2007

Two videos from YouTube on Node:

1. This one shows the nodeexplorer as the “Stourhead GPS Explorer”

2. Here is an example of a program for the nodeexplorer as “Stourhead GPS Explorer”. I like it, as it does not simply show the reality, but reconstructs the past.
