DeepaMehta used in BAER project

In summer 2008 a group of media and computing students created a hypermedia backend with DeepaMehta for an information system for visitors to the penguin house at Berlin Zoological Garden. A Flash-based touch display was utilized as frontend. The application prototype ("SemKingPeng") was developed in the context of the BAER project.

BAER is an interdisciplinary R&D project that deals with new concepts for zoo management and is conducted by the University of Applied Sciences, Berlin (TFH).
