Sukiennice Museum brings art to life « QR Code Artist

Sukiennice Museum brings art to life « QR Code Artist | Transfat | Scoop.it

Using scanned codes (not really QR Codes) the stories of the art is told using videos with stories of war, love, crime, mystery and madness.

The campaign itself was a huge success (20% of Krakow’s popluation) with the tour booked months in advance and picking up mainstream attention on television, media, blogs and online in general.This is a well thought out campaign that brings museums to the next generation and turns something that many youngsters found boring in to a world of technology that they understand.

Lance Weiler :: story architect of film, tv and games » Pandemic 1.0 | Transfat | Scoop.it

“A mysterious virus begins to affect the adults in a small rural town, and the youth soon find themselves cut off from civilization, fighting for their lives. How fast is the virus spreading? It is confirmed—the virus has hit Park City. Can you survive? Pandemic 1.0, a transmedia storytelling experience, unites film, mobile and online technologies, props, social gaming, and data visualization, enabling audiences to step into the shoes of the pandemic protagonists anytime during the day. Mission Control is the only way to learn where you stand in the face of the spreading pandemic.” – Sundance Film Festival program description.

The Playstation Vita Will Have Killer Augmented Reality

The Playstation Vita Will Have Killer Augmented Reality | Transfat | Scoop.it
Sony has unveiled a new video for the Playstation Vita. This time around, they're showing off the features of it's augmented reality, and it's looking pretty good from here. Seeing two people squaring off in a public place with them could be very cool if it works as well as it seems. So we'll see.

It's hard not to think of the possibilities of what the technology could offer down the road, or what unannounced projects developers might be using this for already. Ken Levine, if Bioshock Vita has an AR component, you sir, should be Time's Man of the Year.

With the connectivity that the Vita should have with a strong Wi-Fi, or a 3G if you shell out for it, Sony really might have something here. It's a gorgeous system, as some of us saw at a recent Sony event, and it's fun. It's really fun. And those AR cards look pretty gnarly, too.

Silverstring Media » What D&D can tell us about Transmedia

Silverstring Media » What D&D can tell us about Transmedia | Transfat | Scoop.it

"I’ve played Dungeons & Dragons for 14 years. And I’ve realized lately that this has, in many ways, done a lot to prepare me for writing for transmedia. There’s so much crossover between the best practices in D&D and in transmedia writing.


The next few posts will look at this relationship and what we can learn from it. I’ll start by exploring how D&D is, in many ways, itself transmedia, then in the next articles discuss what we can learn from it, and what we can’t."
