Design Process

Ideation

Art Museums usually are not very accessible for people with visual impairments, this group of people encounter problems like not having good views of artworks or other displays, not able to get close to displays due to protection to displays. An augmented reality app in tablet would be helpful for low vision people to get clearer and more complete views of artworks without disturbing other viewers or bringing potential damage to artworks.
