From Programmable Web:
The Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum has released an API to grant developers programmatic access to its collection. Developers within the Smithsonian and third-party developers alike can utilize API access to collect data for a number of purposes. For instance, the museum’s Immersion Room projects archived wallpaper patterns onto the walls after pulling data through the API. The use cases for third-party access include apps for education and design firms.
The API allows Cooper Hewitt to digitally display its entire collection; the floor space doesn’t allow for such presentation. The museum maintains more than 200,000 objects, while the floor space allows for the display of only around 700 objects.
