Australian Safari

Australian Safari is an Interactive Learning Experience commissioned by the NC State College of Sciences. The application engages students in an augmented reality scavenger hunt. Helpful Clues leads students to 6 Real World locations around campus; each of which hosts a unique Australian animal. Walking within range of these location triggers a sound effect followed by educational videos about the corresponding animal. From a technical stand point, this was accomplished by using Bluetooth Beacon technology. At each of the six locations a Bluetooth Beacon that constantly admits a low energy signal was installed. The app is designed to receive these signals and trigger the corresponding animal events.
