Project: The Mission
Client: Tom Tits Experiment, Södertälje, Sweden
Tom Tits is one of Sweden’s leading science centres. While successful and popular, they are aware that digital technology is changing how their audience wants to interact with an exhibition.
In collaboration with some of the world’s foremost researchers on pervasive games, Annika Waern and Karl Bergström from Uppsala University, we’ve melded together physical interaction with digital technology to create a game experience within the exhibition. Participants take on the role of “science agents” and in each of the connected exhibits they gather various resources needed to build and launch a ship into the universe. The game runs on XMS, Expology’s unique system for setting up, running and maintaining all digital installations within a public setting.
