TUN- Virtual Playground
The teams aims to maximise access to the Medina, inside it and beyond its borders, through connected content and virtual exploration. The concept is of a gamified virtual interface of the Medina that would mirror the physical place and where users can access information and try different experiences to explore it (e.g. choose to be guided vs. “get lost” in this large labyrinth). The platform will consists of an open street map, a geo-located cultural calendar, a content database, etc… which could be crowdsourced and made accessible to residents and visitors. In addition, key monuments and places of the Medina will be served by WiFI hotspots, QR codes and street signs to create a bridge between the virtual platform and the real Medina.
