New Product Launch at Spike Island Cork
We at In Hand Guides are currently finishing off the work to install our new beacon triggered audioplayer system into Spike Island Fort – our first project for the new system.
Soon visitors to Spike Island will be able to purchase this unique souvenir audioplayer. Once powered on, it will trigger a track as you pass one of the 40 beacons located all around the island. Each beacon is linked to a track on your player . All the tracks are location specific and will teach you about the importance of the casemates as a defensive structure or the early history of the island and who was resident there voluntarily or involuntarily.
This means No need for Wi-Fi or GPS , no having to punch in numbers on a player, no touching players against pads – our beacons are waiting for you 24/7 – or at least during opening hours. Why not visit Ireland’s Alcatraz today and take a step back in time.
