Tolle Fake-Doku von Silvia Dal Dosso über ein fiktives Augmented Jump'n'Run-Game in Real Life, in dem Leute angeblich durch Berlin springen und Bitcoins sammeln. Gedreht wurde auf der re:publica, in der C-Base und im Bitcoinkiez. Tolle Idee der man vor allem den Spaß an der Sache wirklich ansieht. Sehr schön, finde ich gut. (via Interweb3000)

In the Berlin city everyone is going crazy for a viral new app. Anyone with a smartphone can play a sort of Super Mario Bros arcade game in Augmented Reality. In the game a coin corresponds to 0.01 Bitcoins. Citizens' habits are tainted by the game. Coins are hidden all over the city, you can spot them just scanning around with your device, not always they are easy to grab. People started to leave their jobs in order to collect Coins in the streets. All over the city people are jumping and running around with their smartphones, trying to grab as many virtual coins as they can…

The shooting itself is been a game in the game: all the interviewees were asked to imagine the city as the app release happened for real and to answer thereby, sometimes they were even asked to play with it. Part of the work was dedicated to the Bitcoinkiez, a small Berlin district where local owners started to sell their products in Bitcoins through the Bitcoin Wallet App, which would be the "real" app to whom the Super Mario app is corresponding.
