New to Kscope17 this year, ODTUG has partnered with AppsLab, the Emerging Technologies team of Oracle Applications User Experience, for a new, interactive mobile game called Kscope GO! Self-register for the game by downloading the “Kscope GO" app in the iOS App Store or Android Google Play.
Kscope GO is a location-based mobile game that delivers a real-life experience for players. Players move within their real-world surroundings at Kscope17, capturing Kscopémon that live within the Kscope17 conference venue. Kscope GO uses augmented reality, similar to Google Maps, to map out your surroundings. Kscopémon are all around you in the Kscope17 venue, but it’s your job to find them. When you locate one using the Kscope GO mobile app, you “catch it”, rewarding yourself with the points associated with that Kscopémon. The more Kscopémon you catch, the more points you will receive throughout the week at Kscope17. Battle your way to the top three to win one of our great prizes!
- First place: DJI Phantom Quadcopter Drone with HD Video
- Second place: 360fly 360° HD Video Camera
- Third place: WowWee MiP Robot
You’ll be able to earn extra points by tweeting out photos within the Kscope GO app of the Kscopémon you catch. If you don’t already have a Twitter account, we recommend creating an account for Kscope17 for the opportunity to earn additional points while you play. When you sign up to play, be sure to enter your Twitter handle to be eligible for bonus points.
The top three winners who catch the most Kscopémon and receive the most points will be recognized at the Kscope17 Closing Session on Thursday between 11:15 AM and 12:00 PM. You must be present to win.
