GoSwift – Online Reservation System for Border
Crossing the Estonian border from Russia, an external EU border was once a time-consuming, unsure wrangle lasting days and resulting in bribery, illegal sale of spots in the queue, pollution, traffic safety issues and losses for freight carriers. Since the implementation of the GoSwift project, shorter waiting times and the elimination of physical lineups have resulted in an end to the illegal sale of places in line, better security and fewer waste problems at the border. By allocating a specific time and date for the applicant to cross the border online, GoSwift has created minimum waiting, cleaner surroundings near border crossing points and considerably more movement of cars and trucks due to online efficiency. Using the GoSwift system, trucks and cars can now drive to the border just before the registered border crossing time. Drivers can wait at designated waiting areas where toilets, showers, dining areas, and free WIFI are available, proceeding as scheduled to cross the border easily and on time. As a Private Public Partnership project, the system saves Estonian transport companies four million Euros a year.

Kids love a good story – and actually, so do we as adults. Kinetic Stories is a series of storybooks that mix traditional storytelling with the latest developments in motion tracking and speech recognition technology. Through this unique combination, a Kinetic Story allows any child (or playful adult) to step into the role of their favorite storybook character. In Kinetic Stories, the child becomes an active part of the storytelling experience. A story in the series inspires the child to do what comes most naturally to them – telling a story through their movements and voice. While doing so, the child keeps developing both their mental and physical capabilities. A key aspect of the concept, the printed book represents a continuation of the same story outside the digital realm. The interactive version can be updated, and hidden content can be uncovered by showing certain pages of the printed book to the sensor device at key times.
The site Enajori stands out as a pioneer because it is the first online monthly bilingual magazine from the state of Assam in northeast India. Assam is famous for its tea and cultural diversity but also suffers from conflict and underdevelopment. The content coverage on Enajori showcases the cultural richness of this state and includes local music, cinema, literature, wildlife, and tourism, as well as e-novels. It is enabled for mobile users as well, thus extending the reach to a wider reader base. The jury commends Enajori for giving a digital home to local Assamese as well as useful resources for visitors to the state from other parts of India and the outside world. Young readers will also appreciate the children’s section of the site. There are participatory components of the site as well, with sections such as Photographer of the Month. Some content is also translated into English for international readers, and earlier monthly editions of the magazine are archived. The site’s book catalog lists publications dating back to the year 1849. In keeping with the times, there are also links to videos and sound clips of Assamese songs. The site already draws an estimated 250,000 readers each month, after less than three years of launch. The jury appreciates the scholarly contribution of the site as well as the contemporary content. The site showcases the diverse use of the Internet as a medium for both historical contents (e.g., chronologies) as well as participatory content (e.g., user-contributed photographs). The jurors regard the site as a good example for other cultural groups also to follow, for cultural preservation and enjoyment.

Beijing Traditional Chinese Medicine Digital Museum
Beijing Digital Museum of Traditional Chinese Medicine is a virtual museum of popular science in Chinese and English aiming to spread the culture of Traditional Chinese Medicine as it relates to scientific knowledge. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is said to be actively practiced in one hundred and sixty-two countries and is increasingly attracting the attention of international medical researchers. As natural methods and low carbon lifestyles become the hallmark of the 21st century, TCM, a veritable miracle of medical achievement, is becoming more and more attractive to discerning people worldwide. In China, no museum about Traditional Chinese Medicine exists, and the few affiliated to educational and research departments are inadequate. For this reason, Beijing Traditional Chinese Medicine International Exchange and Cooperating Center (BTCMIECC) supported by the Beijing Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine has built the Beijing Digital Museum of Traditional Chinese Medicine after five years of cooperation with Beijing University of Chinese Modern Medicine + Advanced TCM Education, and other well-known universities and research institutes. Among the topics included on the website are medical care, acupuncture, health and life, Qigong, Tuina, imperial court medicine, culture and history, cosmetic treatment, education, science and technology, and international cooperation.
