On 11 June 2014, Mission Eureka was launched. NorthernLight developed, designed and implemented this unique iPad based interactive quest for the Philips Museum in Eindhoven. Mission Eureka is an innovative game for all the family about 100 years of Philips inventions, for everyone from age 8. You play the game together in a group of 2, 3 or 4 people. At various points in the Philips museum the iPad makes contact with a console to start an interactive group game with quizzes, puzzles and games.
The team is presented with ‘challenges’ that they have to solve, just like real researchers. Working together as a team you find out how LED light works and what X-rays do, for example. But team members can also compete against one another. These group games, which all four people can also play on the iPad at the same time, make Mission Eureka unique. The innovative iBeacon technology used means that the iPad automatically recognizes where the game is and each time starts the group games right away. The Mission Eureka family game takes about an hour to complete and is available in Dutch or English.
