Thymio programming adventure
Using a tablet and an open source Visual Programming Interface, the player have to solve increasingly complex puzzles by programming the educational robot Thymio, making it interacting with tangible 3D markers that create a virtual world through the tablet.
Throughout the story, the player helps Thymio get back to earth from a parallel fantastic world. The player progresses in the story by fulfilling missions and acquiring programming features.
Combining real and virtual worlds allows interactions that had never been explored before.
