SpyCamp for Orange employees: Teambuilding gained a new dimension
Imagine that you would have to take courage during a teambuilding event and go into the search for a treasure that someone stole and hid in Banská Štiavnica. Employees of Orange Slovensko have no choice.
How did our work on SpyCamp start?
Approximately two years ago, the event agency MONARCH, a.s. addressed us with a clear vision - to prepare something playful and engaging for the client Orange Slovakia. And so we have started developing an interactive application using iBeacon technology - SpyCamp. In the app every user has to choose a team and go through several missions. The point is to find a treasure before the other contestants.
How does this app work?
It is based on the fact that as the player moves and passes through the city, the app receives a signal from the nearest iBeacon, then sends to the mobile device a notification of what task the player has to do. Imagine that you are crossing the city and looking for help to bring you to the treasure.
What obstacles did we have to conquer?
The iBeacon testing was most challenging, because it has a reach only a few meters, so we had to find the right places to grab the app and to exclude places where the signal would not be reachable. Thanks to this project, we have verified the real use of iBeacon and tested it in Banská Štiavnica.
