Next Generation Play

Project Directors: Janet Murray, Michael Nitsche
Design Team: Matthew Drake, Sam Mendenhall

The focus of the Next Generation Play project is on media convergence. We want to realize this convergence between established media, such as television and print, and locative social media such as cell phones. More specifically, our prototype provides a new form of media playspace for small groups that share a physical location and use cell phones to generate interconnected media experiences.
