We are happy to announce that Tactify is partnering with The Legacy Project in Chicago to create a new digitally interactive experience for visitors. The Legacy Walk is an outdoor museum showcasing LGBT contributions to history and runs along North Halsted Street. Visitors will now be able to supplement their experience on the Legacy Walk by accessing their entire database on their mobile devices by tapping over an NFC chip or scanning a QR code.
Once implemented, the existing plaques will be supplemented with video, images and audio content, providing an even richer experience for visitors. Eventually, each plaque will be enabled with beacons, making it even easier to learn about the inspiring people who are celebrated throughout the Legacy Walk.
Full NFC and QR code implementation is expected in June 2015 – LGBT Pride Month – in advance of the dedication of Phase IV of the Legacy Walk next fall. Make sure to follow Tactify and The Legacy Project on Twitter for continuous updates. You can learn more about visiting The Legacy Project here.
