Future Tools for Future Games: Digital play beyond screens

This presentation explores how the emergence of the internet of things allows us to design and create digital games that turn our schools, our cities and physical spaces into digital play environment. Daniel does this through demonstrating different ways digital tools have been used to create serious transmedia, educational and community building games and play spaces.
