Abstract

In this paper we present the design of an interactive experience journey at an ex-industrial textile factory. The aim is to enhance the visitors’ experience by engaging them in the work processes and flows that were taking place in the actual industrial environment and introduce them to the role of the artifacts and tools involved in real life work scenarios. The development is of the form of a room escaping experience developed on the basis of riddle solving. We used a number of technologies related to interactive systems design such as near field communication, physical computing, sensors, actuators and tangible artifacts.

Keywords
