As part of an 18 month InnovateUK project with WOMAD, Blispa are exploring how beacon and location information can be used to create fun festival experiences. Following on from our early trials at the 2015 festival this year we provided a comprehensive festival guide app for WOMAD 2016. This gives us unique experience of creating great festival experiences for the public, and great operational insights for organisers. We have learnt how to effectively deploy beacons at scale, provide crowd sourced location information and providing real time analytics to organisers.
TimeHunter is a cityscape game activity powered by Blispa ibeacon technology, turning your town into a playable city where unexpected corners of history can be explored. We work with local councils, Business Improvement Districts and local attractions to create a game that encourages exploration around the town. Exploring in a playable city brings local history to life in fun ways and engages visitors and locals alike.
Finder Wristbands at WOMAD Festival
As part of this years festival app we incorporated Finder wristbands. These unique fabric wristbands enabled friends and family to find the location of their loved ones on site.
Tours and Trails
We use beacons to trigger tours, trails and scavenger hunts that can be played indoors and out. Created using our online platform games can be quickly created without developer input.
