Project: playfuL cOnneCted rUral territorieS - the Internet of Things in the intergenerational creative production of cultural georeferenced contents

Acronym: LOCUS
Main Objective:
LOCUS is a multidisciplinary project with the goal of co-design, develop and evaluate an IoT system and understand its potential to support playful intergenerational engagement in creating and exploring cultural contents and learning about Cultural Heritage of
rural territories from the Centre Region of Portugal, namely Amiais Village, in Sever do Vouga. By implementing a playful and immersive Cultural Heritage Tourism approach to foster Amiais' cultural and socioeconomic development, LOCUS will allow visitors to have immersive gamified experiences, by using a wearable device (bracelet) and their smartphones to interact with augmented everyday things around the village and to collaboratively learn about Amiais' culture and produce and share multimedia georeferenced contents.
