Located in Basel, Switzerland, two institutions that have modified and integrated our headphones into their exhibits are the Novartis Pavillon and Kunstmuseum.
'Wonders of Medicine' is an interactive exhibition space that explores the intersection of science and art. The exhibit features various interactive installations, including immersive soundscapes, digital artworks, and interactive sculptures. To enhance the visitor experience, we partnered with the Novartis Pavilion to provide visitors with high-quality headphones.
"Sofia," the intelligent audio guide, revolutionizes the exhibition experience by delivering real-time information about nearby exhibits to visitors. Thanks to the TMA-2's unique modular design, the museum was able to modify our headphones to include high-precision location tracking, using ultra-wideband technology (UWB). This allowed visitors to freely navigate the exhibition while receiving personalized audio content as they go. The UWB transmitters throughout the space communicated with the headphones, enabling precise positioning within ten centimeters. Additionally, an IMU sensor tracks head orientation, allowing for interactive and immersive engagement with the exhibition.
Also using the same high-precision location tracking technology, the Pissarro Sounds exhibit at the Kunstmuseum featured a collection of paintings by Camille Pissarro, accompanied by an immersive soundscape that complimented the artwork. To ensure visitors could appreciate the soundscape fully, the museum provided our specially modified headphones, allowing them to fully immerse themselves in the exhibit.
Modularity is crucial for adapting to evolving technology, reducing waste, and benefiting consumers. Our TMA-2 headphones exemplify this by allowing easy upgrades and customization. When Apple removed the audio jack, TMA-2 users remained unaffected as new components were introduced. This flexibility promotes sustainability and highlights the need for larger companies to embrace modularity to reduce electronic waste. We believe that modularity is the future, and we are hopeful that our headphone systems will continue to inspire future art installations and creative projects, pushing the boundaries of sound and technology. We look forward to witnessing how artists and creators will use our technology to create immersive experiences for audiences worldwide. The possibilities are endless, and we are excited to be a part of the ever-evolving world of art and technology. Read more about Why Modular Electronics Matter here.
