Help Guglielmo Marconi to send a message using a telegraph!
Progetto “S”: L’esperimento di Guglielmo Marconi it’s a mobile serious game made for the Marconi App Contest. It’s a game about Guglielmo Marconi’s Experiments targeted for young girls and boys. With this app, Rising Pixel won the first prize of “Marconi app contest“.
The app tries to convey the interest of young people towards the character of Guglielmo Marconi by mixing historical relevance and irony with a graphic style inspired by the engravings of the early 1900s. In 1895 Guglielmo Marconi, armed with a telegraph and a kite, made one of the first transmissions of a wireless message at a distance of a few kilometers, an “S” sent by Villa Griffone beyond a nearby hill.
In Project S we will retrace the radio transmission tests in every phase: the construction of a reception tower, the “take-off” of the kite that acts as a transmitter, and the composition of the signal through a vintage telegraph. The success of each part will dictate the final result of the experiment: how many kilometers will your “S” run? It just depends on you!
