Entry Description: The Graceland Tablet Tour is among the first to use a Mobile Device (iPads) as a walk-around tool for tour visitors and the very first to leverage iBeacon technology as a robust content delivery system. This project was built to replace an audio tour that had been in place at Graceland for decades. In addition adding an interactive dimension to the Graceland tour, the application offers games and activities as well as opportunities for guests to dig deeper into Elvis-related content. Some examples include: QTVR images of every room in Graceland so guests can view the space from perspectives that are not permitted while on site, Elvis's home videos, and an "Elvis Yourself" interactive that invites guests take a photo of themsleves and see it superimposed onto the body of an Elvis character.
