More Final Projects From Bruce Sterling’s AR Design Class: BitHunt
Throughout the summer, we’ve covered some of the highlights of Bruce Sterling’s Layar-sponsored AR design class at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
As all good things must come to an end, so has this class, but not without some impressive final student projects! Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be sharing videos of these projects as well as footage from the class presentations with Layar strategist Gene Becker making a guest appearance to offer comments and feedback. You can read all our posts related to the Design Class here.
This next concept was created by Riccardo Valerio and showcases his location-based AR game called BitHunt (there’s also a BitHunt layer currently in testing). The game is centered around real-world exploration, clue finding, puzzle-solving and treasure hunting (with BitCoins that you can turn into cash!).
This video will make you want to rush out the door with nothing but your phone and a Tintin-like sense of adventure—check it out!
