Abstract

This IQP team created six interactive games for the In Future gallery at the Science Museum in London. The games demonstrate how technology may affect daily life in 2020. Topics are Android Servants, Cloning Extinct Species, Flying Cars, Genetic Enhancement, Nanorobots, and Weather Modification. We created topic proposals, surveyed visitor interest, generated text, and evaluated it with visitors. Our results were story boards detailing the introduction, game, and conclusion for each topic for software engineers to implement into the exhibit.
