ARGH! Mateys by UCL’s Connected Environment Lab

Due to current restrictions, this physical trail aspect of this project is on hold.

Go on a journey around the Docks to discover stories created by young people hidden in digital portholes as part of this exciting augmented reality-led, interactive trail by the University College London’s Connected Environment Lab, an early adopter of the new UCL East Campus.

The trail can be followed online via a memory-map from the 26 November, please check back with us frequently for more information about the outdoor trail.

Capturing and replaying a series of digital predictions, ARGH! Mateys has been created by researchers from UCL's Connected Environment's Lab together with young people from Fight for Peace, Youth Empowerment, West Silvertown Foundation and the Royal Docks Learning Activity Centre. Part of the Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) at University College London, the Connected Environments Lab is an early adopter of UCL East. This new immersive trail builds on previous projects from the lab which focus on allowing objects in the wild to converse, including talking trees, a tour of Wordsworth's poems and conversational gnomes.


Please note: If taking part in this trail or walk as part of your daily exercise, you must always follow the latest government guidelines on restrictions and social distancing.
