Moe-Bot System Allows for Virtual Visits
Now in Las Vegas, you can go to one of its attractions without even going to Sin City.
The Mob Museum has introduced a Moe-Bot system that allows for virtual tours using a robot inside the museum. You simply go to a website from any computer, smart phone or tablet and instruct the robot whee to go in the museum.
The system, a BeamPro telepresence robot created by Suitable Technologies, will be introduced on April 1. No fooling!
“This system is not only technologically impressive, but also will give members of our community who cannot visit the Museum—even visitors across the globe—a high-quality, engaging Museum experience they otherwise couldn’t have enjoyed,” said Ashley Misko, director of marketing and public relations, The Mob Museum.
“Best of all, the system is incredibly easy to use.”
Introduced as a way to expand the Museum’s audience, Moe-Bot will be used to enable visitors to participate in live, immersive, interactive, guided tours of the museum from virtually anywhere in the world.
Once a user logs onto the system – this information, along with the pricing, will be announced in April – his or her face appears on Moe-Bot’s screen, which is mounted on a mobile stand and controlled by the virtual visitor.
A Museum guide accompanies the Moe-Bot visitor and is there to answer any questions, point out displays and give a personalized touch to the interactive tour.
The Mob Museum is the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement. For those who want to visit in person, it’s located downtown near Fremont Street.
To register for a Moe-Bot guided tour of The Mob Museum, go to themobmuseum.org.
