Project: Immersive Edutainment: Artsci Arcade Games + Educational Chatbot
The interactive exhibition titled Copernican Principle was created to celebrate the 550th birth anniversary of the iconic astronomer, Nicolaus Copernicus. This art & science project consists of 3 arcade game machines and several original arcade games designed as an entry point into an interactive Chatbot AudioGuide that is built into the Messenger Application.
Visitors are invited to play the original arcade games and experience a different perception of Space exploration. Once the game is won or lost, a QR code is displayed on the arcade machine screen. Scanning the QR code with a smartphone’s camera allows the gamer to leave the artistic part of the project behind and enter the interactive chatbot.
The chatbot offers access to extended information and content on the topic of Space exploration and invites the audience to broaden their understanding of the subject.
