Mike Vogel: "State of Syn isn’t an ordinary series. There are episodes with a stylistic approach that feels more like a video game than a webseries, a mobile app where you unlock puzzles, and a Google Glass app currently in development."
Whether or not State of Syn succeeds commercially or critically, they should get kudos for pushing boundaries of multi-sensory #transmedia #storytelling and helping people think differently about integrating technology such as Google Glass. Efforts like this emphasize #AR apps and wearable technology as a rich form of experience instead of creepy privacy violation. In this case, the game mechanics do not tie directly to the series. The Google Glass is more of a "parallel play" experience linking narrative with gaming. One app (for $) creates a “synesthesia” layer – the same trait held by the show’s lead protagonist Annika Drake. (I've always wanted to know what it was like to taste music and see feelings.) This should light a fire under other innovators to get creative! Can't wait to see what happens.
