Digital flanerbook

This page describes the “Digital flanerbook” project, developed at the Faculty of Computer and Information Science in cooperation with the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, both members of Univeristy of Ljubljana. Project is a mean of delivering art content to people and enables interaction between the participants and the authors of the content. It is based on mobile phones, QR codes and electronic communications.

Use After installing the client, an icon of the “Digital flanerbook” should be placed in the default folder of the mobile phone (refer to the phone manual).
You can start the application by clicking the icon. A set of 6 icons is then shown. By clicking the “camera” icon, you are given the opportunity to capture images. Point the camera to the QR code label and press the select button (positioned among direction keys), then grant permission to take photos, if asked. The camera will take a picture and try to process it. You will then be presented with the list of the processed plaintext or an alert, if decoding fails. In case of failure select the top-left icon “camera” with direction keys to try again.
In case of successful decoding, the content will be presented. You can move around the plaintext with your direction keys and choose words by pressing the select key. The word selected gets a light-blue background and this means it is selected. By moving to the ‘Send’ button (middle-left) and selecting it, the mobile phone will try to connect to server and send the word (grant permission to connect, if asked). If connection was successful, the word will eventually appear on the display screen on the location. By selecting the “back” button you are taken to the initial screen. The “list” icon on the main screen takes you to the list of processed text, the “question mark” icon displays help for the user and the “X” mark terminates the application.
The “weather” and “let’s eat” icons aren’t active yet and are planned for further functions to be implemented in the future.
