Take a Look at my Project

This project was not as nice as I wanted it to be due to the hurricane.  On a still night I think it could have been much nicer.  It will be evidenced in the video the wind problem I was experiencing.

About this Project

This is a project is for MSP 4741.  Its intention is to combine the physical and virtual world while telling a story or playing a game.

The idea of this project is finding unexpected but important information on a common street corner.  What is interesting about this display is that it could be placed on any corner.  The physical items I am trying to educate people about can be found on any street corner in America.  The physical property involved in this project is common but though the QR codes people can learn uncommon facts.  The virtual brings out the fantastic in the physical.

In order to use this project one must locate the striped caution tape stands.  If the question perks their interest they can scan the QR code and find the answer along with some additional material.  After that if they find the tease interesting they can find the next answer biased on the clue.

How Many Years Will a Cigarette Butt Stay on the Street?

5-25 years is how long a cigarette but will take to decompose according to US Forest service Back Country and Wilderness Challenge Quiz.

Many believe that cigarette butts being made out of paper will biodegrade quickly. However, they contain a lot of synthetic material.  In flicking your butt instead of disposing of it properly you are unintentionally littering our city streets for at least 5 years.
