AWM Hard Case
Client: Australian War Memorial
To coincide with the centenary of the First World War, the Australian War Memorial launched an interactive digital tour guide system. The hard case designed by INNI provides protection for the handheld devices, addressing key technical and security concerns.
A precise positioning system developed by Fraunhofer locates the device within the museum space and sends digital content via WiFi, however the signal is blocked when the device rests against the body. Our solution to maximise the WiFi signal was to shift the lanyard attachment to the face of the bezel, pushing the antenna away from the body when the device is hanging from the lanyard. The internal cavity created by offsetting the lanyard attachments provides space for the security device, and simplifies the tooling to reduce cost.
