#1 "Best New App" in Travel (Apple App Store, 11/7/13 - 11/14/13)
Guidekick is a mobile interpretive tool that creates an immersive and engaging learning experience for visitors at high profile historical attractions.
A world-class mobile app piloted at Hearst Castle that runs on visitors’ personal iPhone, Android, and Google Glass. It triggers content (historic images, narrated audio, music, etc.) in real time as a visitor approaches things that interest them.
Vision In Progress:
To recreate each era of existence for every historical location in the world and enable visitors to observe and interact with those environments while they’re on location. An example of this would be walking around Alcatraz and using a mobile device to see in real time as it was in the 1930s - prisoners behind bars while guards patrolled the corridors.
