Cool Toys pic of the day – ARIS


In their words:
“ARIS is a tool for you to make mobile games, tours, and interactive
stories. Using the GPS and QR codes, ARIS players will experience a
virtual world of Interactive characters, items and media placed in
physical space.”

There are some great ideas for examples of this truly innovative, open
source, augmented reality tool:
– historical role-play in the place where the real events happened;
– language skills ghost story;
– poetry puzzle;
– story games where players unlock characters and devices to move
through the plot (and through real world spaces). And of course there
are tons of tours.

Go, prowl the website for more ideas. Or download the free app and see
what games you can find. There aren’t many in my area, but browse the
map to see what other folk are doing.
