Today we launched our brand new App! Making us the first aquarium in Australia to introduce interactive iBeacon technology.
This exciting new technology allows visitors to access location-specific information about the exhibits, animals and conservation in the palm of their hand.
Visitors can now download the app on any Bluetooth-enabled device, allowing them to access relevant information throughout their journey thanks to Specialist Apps Limited, ground-breaking, iBeacon and eLocker technology.
iBeacons are small transmitters which utilize Bluetooth technology to detect nearby mobile devices subscribed to a specific app and provide notifications of available information.
This amazing new technology personalises your journey, and is interactive and engaging for all ages.
With the use of videos, photos and array of content the app is sure to be a favourite amongst visitors. Aquarium enthusiasts can also download the app to use at home for school projects, research or to help prepare for a trip to the aquarium.
The app can be downloaded for curious minds to start learning about the magical underwater world before their visit, and can also store photos and notes collected while at the aquarium, which can then be shared directly via social media or enjoyed afterwards.
Not only is this new technology a vital learning tool, it will also assist visitors to navigate their journey, alert them to special offers and upcoming events making for a seamless flow of information to complement individual interests.
The app is now available to download, simply search SEA LIFE Melb in either the Apple App Store or Google Play.
