- BLE, Wi-Fi, Gyro, compass, GPS, NFC, LED -Are all these technologies applicable for museums and galleries?
- Are they deployed in isolation or together for the future design of museum venues and exhibits?

- Will this change the way venues are designed?
- How does the use of an automatic museum guide device change the museum experience and perception for the guest?
