We congratulate our colleagues and all the participants of the project!
The "Life Code" quest is the first stage of cooperation within the framework of the Memorandum of understanding between the State Darwin Museum and Microsoft in Russia. The AR-quest was created in partnership with Next.space, which specializes in VR and AR technologies and innovative museum projects. The LIFE CODE is an augmented reality-based adventure story of the Life Code Project allowing users to actively engage in the Darwin Museum. The application explores in detail every aspect of the Darwin Museum whilst engaging users in a unique comix background story. The quest combines entertainment and education. Players interact with real exhibits in augmented reality. Thanks to the support from Microsoft this project not only became highly competitive but also won the victory over the biggest educational projects.
