Local Property Trader

2013

A location-based Monopoly-style, game using NFC tags and QR codes. This project is a collaboration between Mark Lochrie and Adrian Gardiner at Lancaster Univerity investigating how location and social media can be used to raise awareness of local businesses and possibly regenerate declining highstreets in the UK. The initial prototype was focused on using Manchester as a case study and the application was developed as part of a 48 hour hack-a-thon at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester. A video of the project can be found here, and papers based on the project can be found here.
