This semester, EyeWire has teamed up with NYU Game Lab to teach a new class called Game Design for Citizen Science. Over the past few weeks, graduate students divided into three teams, and each team developed a concept for an improvement to EyeWire using our new APIs, which were recently featured in Techcrunch. This week and weekend (May 2 – 5), we will be inviting you to beta test their game modifications.
First Beta Testing Opportunity: Squads on Sunday, May 3
Are you an experienced Eyewirer? Do you often show the rookies how its done? Whether you’re a solo agent or have a partially formed team, look no further…sign up to test Squads here.
Details for other projects will be added soon. One challenges you to trick other players while another tries to trick you with puzzle cubes.
Final Presentations Livestream
Next Thursday morning (May 7), at 9:30 am US ET, the teams will make their final presentations, which will be livestreamed on EyeWire’s YouTube Channel. Check our Facebook page for a link once we go live.
