Reese News Lab Adventure Squad app in the news

UNC’s University Communications recently ran a story about UNC School of Media and Journalism Assistant Professor Steven King‘s “Adventure Squad” app, an augmented reality video game that keeps hospitalized pediatric patients mobile and empowered, allowing them to play an interactive “superhero” game on their hospital floor.

King, who also serves as the MJ-school’s Reese News Lab’s chief innovation officer, developed the game with Dr. Richard Hobbs, an associate professor of medicine and pediatrics at the UNC School of Medicine. The project received the University’s prestigious C. Felix Harvey award earlier this year.
