Talk 3
ESC: Building An AR Escape Room Experience
by Tuba Ozkan, Product/UX Designer @ Animoto
& Chao Hui Tu, Visual & Product Designer @ Teknikio

ESC - Project Blue Book is an AR Escape Room for two to four players with a narrative that tracks Project Blue Book, a TV series that is based on the true investigations into UFOs. The project was designed & developed by Chao Hui Tu & Tuba Ozkan as a part of NYC Media Lab & AE Networks AR Fellowship Program.

While their talk will focus on the overall design & development process of this physical & digital experience, the audience will be able to experience a demo of the experience at the finale.
