Chicago00: Prototypes and other sites (2015-16)
Before our first episode release summer of 2016, we prototyped the Chicago00 experience along State Street downtown, and along a section of the Chicago Riverwalk and held public demoes. You can see and read about them here.

An onsite tour for attendees of the Museum and the Web conference, Chicago, April 11, 2015.
Museum and the Web attendees were invited to meet with the developers of CHICAGO 00, to experience an AR walking tour of downtown using the Chicago 00 app prototype. Assistant Professor Alan Rhodes from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Department of Visual Communication Design and Chicago History Museum's Director of Curatorial Affairs, John Russick, led the group a few blocks away to the corner of State and Madison streets; the virtual tour was both an excursion through the physical city via the app and an exploration and discussion with colleagues on the challenges and opportunities presented by such technologies.
