Open Exhibits is an open source multitouch multiuser software project designed to transform how museum professionals and other educators assemble interactive computer-based exhibits for use in museums, schools, and on the Web.
The Open Exhibits SDK includes support for multitouch gestures within Adobe Flash and Flex. This software is free for museums, universities, students, U.S. Government organizations and research labs, and other educational organizations.
Key software features include
Multitouch, Multiuser Support: the Open Exhibits SDK provides an extensive gesture library that allows developers to easily build multitouch applications for use on most TUIO, Windows 7 and Air 2.0-enabled surfaces.
Modules and Templates: the heart of Open Exhibits is a suite of professionally-designed multitouch software modules that act as building blocks for creating new exhibits. Open source Modules and Templates allow designers and developers to connect to online collections and web applications, play multimedia, intearct with NUI devices (such as Microsoft Kinect), and more.
Practical and Open: since most developers of computer-based interactive exhibits use Adobe Flash, Open Exhibits does too. Most modules and templates are authored in Flash, or Adobe’s open source Flex (FlashBuilder) framework.
Community: OpenExhibits.org is a resource for developers and exhibit designers, with screencasts, member blogging, a community driven idea board, research findings, museum surveys, and the software itself.
