We really enjoy projects where we make things that have a real-life use.
InfoFi is one of those things.
The Wish Tower on Eastbourne’s seafront is an important heritage building but it isn’t always open to the public. Lots of people pass it and want to know more about it than the interpretation panels outside explain.
Our Elves thought they could bring technology to the building by creating a low-cost device which has lots of information on that people could access easily from their own mobile phones.
We drew up a project plan and approached the Heritage Lottery Fund to give us a grant to work with the Wish Tower Friends to develop the device and get people using it.
We’ve made excellent progress and we’ll be ready to install the device in a few weeks. Once we have, we’ll update this post to include the technical details.
