Universe United is a second screen experience designed to bring transparency to transmedia storytelling, focused on connections between storytelling conventions such as items, characters, events, and locations. With this approach, we hope to enlighten both newcomers and veterans of a particular cinematic and/or television universe.
This project explores the possibilities, challenges, and benefits of using a tangible object as a controller and feedback device in an interactive television show. The Universal Threshold Object (UTO) enables interactors to realize emotional choices in a narrative world through physical action with objects in a way that emphasizes dramatic immersion rather than gamelike skill mastery. Research methods include prototyping based on real television content and iterative design and testing in a demonstration environment.
