The Smithsonian Institute

  • Transparent to the end user
  • Extremely easy to use for any level of user
  • No additional hardware required

The SoftwareWedge for DOS (DOSWedge) is being used in an exhibition called "The Information Age" at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. Visitors wishing to participate in the interactive exhibits are supplied with a personalized barcode label. At each interactive display the barcode is read with an RS232 output scanner and DOSWedge inputs the data into a computer application. This application then acts on this personal information to provide visitors with a detailed summery listing of all the exhibits they have interacted with at the exhibition. DOSWedge has been in continuous, successful operation at the Smithsonian since early 1990.
