First of all, I was very surprised to see the organism name displayed instantaneously simply by scanning using the phone. It is wonderful for customers to know more about creatures beyond the constraints of the commentary display in the aquarium. Since it is also possible to display the aquarium or zoo's very own commentary, it is really interesting how users will be able to see the unique perspectives of each and every staff in different locations.
I was surprised by the app's ability to recognize multiple organisms simultaneously with high accuracy. The Osaka Kaiyukan Aquariium is focused on reproducing the natural environmental feel with our large aquarium, and our challenge was in displaying the names of organisms that various customers were interested in in a timely manner. I expect that being able to look up names while having fun will further their interest in living things.
Upon placing the smartphone over the organisms, each type was instantly displayed and changed to an illustration. This was quite shocking. At the same time, our dream of introducing all 1,200 species, the highest number of any aquarium in Japan, is likely to change to reality. The customers' experience in aquariums can be fully enhanced with a combination of seeing the organisms in action and LINNÉ LENS' characteristics.
Its charm lies above all in the ability of visitors to take action themselves and learn about living things while having fun. "Learn while having fun" is also one of the necessary elements of an aquarium. "LINNÉ LENS", which allows visitors to instinctively try to learn about living things, has a hidden potential to change future explanations of living things in aquariums.
We were impressed by how information about animals could be obtained just by holding up your hand. We place importance on barrier-free interactions with animals while you walk freely inside of our spacious grounds, and hope that by having them make use of LINNÉ LENS, it will become possible for visitors to have fun by proactively exploring for themselves, something that cannot be done with explanations displayed on signs.
LINNÉ LENS is a smartphone application based on the concept of "scannable AI encyclopedia". LINNÉ LENS corresponds to most of organisms in aquariums and zoos. We provide visitors with free services, display original explanations, and improving recognition accuracy. For more details, please contact us at the following firstname.lastname@example.org
