If so, the ResourCity gaming app is probably an interesting tool to get started with. ResourCity is like Pokémon Go, but with chemistry.
With the app, we raise awareness about the efficient use of available resources and the chemical composition of the wealth of materials in companies, cities, municipalities, and buildings. Because they are not inexhaustible
How does the augmented reality city game ResourCity work?
In the app, you see where chemical elements are hidden in your company. Once you catch them, you get an original fact about this chemical element. And where it is present in the vicinity. The app uses augmented reality to make the elements visible. Don't panic, you don't need any technical knowledge for this. The app explains everything clearly.
As a player, you get an insight into which materials occur on a company site, what the chemical composition of these materials is, and sometimes also which special (historical) story is linked to it.
How to make your own ResourCity
In the ResourCity management system, you can easily create your own ResourCities, add elements, and create badges to reward your players. You can add multiple locations, such as one for each site of your company.
Here's how you do it:
- First, create a new ResourCity.
- Then, go to Chemical Elements and choose which chemical elements are hidden in your ResourCity and where exactly they are located. Each element can be accompanied by a fun fact, whether about the element itself, the location where it's hidden, or something else entirely!
- Finally, click on Badges and add the rewards that players can earn by finding certain (combinations of) elements.
If you really want to contribute to the ResourCity community and become a ResourCity ambassador, you can also purchase additional elements (up to 5) and add them to the management system. These elements will be available to everyone, making your company a ResourCity ambassador, with your company logo prominently displayed in the game.
