Representing "interest in playfulness", The value of a curio box is appreciated by cleverness of its design, including hidden layers and triggers setting them off.This idea serves as the inspiration of our new application: exhibiting popular National Palace Museum artifacts on social sites in the form of a "toy kit," on tablets. More precisely, we see our highly interactive design as "curio boxes" for modern emperors–the users. Our goal is to bring about enjoyable, engaging and intimate experience over the artifacts.This application, though under extensive construction, received positive reviews from a focus group composed of the students of National Chengchi University. We find by fostering the archive as a virtual, yet touchable toy kit can obviously bring the user closer to our content. In this project, with the support from National Science Council of Taiwan, we will help the NPM develop brand new mobile experience of its collections.
