AbstractAlmost every visitor brings their own mobile device (e.g., smartphone or tablet) to the museum. Although, many museums include interactive exhibits (e.g., multi-touch tables), the visitors' own devices are rarely used as part of a device ecology. Currently, there is no suitable infrastructure to seamlessly link different devices in museums. Our approach is to integrate the visitor's own device in a multi-device ecology (MDE) in the museum to enhance the visitor's exhibition experience. Thus, we present a technical concept to set up such MDEs integrating the well-established TUIO framework for multi-touch interaction on and between devices.
