Full Project Description:
Did Sherlock ‘die’ on this street? Has the Tardis touched down here? Fans regularly travel to the places where their favourite TV and films were made but rely on forums to share location details and plans.
Embracing the loyalty and collective power of fan communities, Cardiff University’s Naomi Dunstan and Ross Garner and Technologist Tarim of Media Playgrounds, will develop specially designed jewellery that alerts users to nearby hot spots, guiding them to locations and creating a secret talisman only others fans will know.
