I made an Escape Room for the company party with a colleague. The end result was a massive success. Here's a description of the room:

The room was built around the technology and platforms that Kinetic uses to service it's clients. These technologies include Proximity Beacons, Barcode Scanning, and RFID.

As a bonus, new applications were specifically designed for the challenge which included Audio Cues and Virtual Reality (Google Cardboard).

The challenge involved having participants be presented with many different tools that would help them to complete the end goal; unlocking the code to the door.

The tools included:

- Proximity Beacon scanner that emitted a sound when moved towards a beacon
- Barcode scanner that translated barcodes into symbols
- Mounted iPods that emitted a unique sound
- Google Cardboard viewer that displayed 3D constellations in Outerspace
- RFID Reader that displayed symbols when specific objects were placed on it

All of these tools took participants through a process of matching Colours, to Shapes, to Sounds, to Imagery, to Geometry, and finally to Symbols. Upon completing all of the matches, participants could then enter the correct sequence of symbols into the lock to finish the challenge.

I miss video/game rental stores like Blockbuster, Rogers Video and smaller rental places. As a kid I remember spending at least an hour scanning through every single video game, deciding what I wanted to rent. That was a cool feeling and I no online game distribution service (Steam, Xbox Marketplace, etc) can replace it.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I'm pretty sure I'm doing it right.
