"Below Stairs" Augmented Reality History Adventure

Rensselaer County Historical Society, 57 Second St., Troy NY

October 21, 2015 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Below Stairs is an interactive mobile Augmented Reality history adventure for visitors to the Rensselaer County Historical Society's historic Hart-Cluett house in Troy, NY. Visitors play the role of a new underservant in the 1850s house, working on a first day of trial employment. In order to secure a permanent position in the household, visitors must execute a series of tasks assigned to them by a cook character. These tasks include the delivery and retrieval of a variety of historic objects from various locations in the house, such as delivering a cup of tea to a member of the family, and fetching a chamber pot for emptying and cleaning. Below Stairs originated in Prof. Rebecca Rouse's Mobile AR Design course in Spring 2014, and was then further developed for public release in Fall 2015.
