Shownotes

Noted science fiction author, Arthur C. Clarke once noted that “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

If you want to see this in action, then head no further to the nearest place you can play MagiQuest. Players are given an RFID enabled wand and go on a scavenger hunt to obtain “enchanted items.”

When players point the wand at various objects, these inanimate objects respond either by opening, lighting up or speaking. It looks exactly like magic.
