Outside my window was the digital age coming alive in one of the most unusual ways.
On a quiet Saturday afternoon, the airplane sculpture became a hotbed of activity as car after car stopped and unloaded groups of people. They were collecting items for a modern day scavenger hunt, but instead of asking for a golf ball or a pogo stick, each group needed to take a selfie at various landmark locations around town.
The selfies were posted on Facebook and the time was monitored as each group finished another task. It’s a great take on an old game, but now you are not stuck with a bunch of junk. Pokemon Go, flash mobs and modern-day scavenger hunts are all examples of immersive media activities that are sweeping the country. It’s a great way to have a game and extend the activity into social media. Winners all around.
