Search for Hidden Artifacts! – National Geographic


Our partners over at National Geographic just launched a really cool interactive experience. Starting today and continuing through Saturday, April 9, viewers can log on between the hours of 2pm and 2am EDT to line up to control the strategically placed state-of-the-art telepresence cameras attached to a moving model train.

The robotic camera train, which travels on a track that snakes throughout the miniature sets, will allow viewers to drive and participate in a photo safari in search of tiny hidden artifacts within each location for a chance to take home a piece of history. Participants have up to 60 seconds to navigate through the set and take a picture of what they deem the most valuable artifact they encounter.

If the captured image turns out to be one of the hidden artifacts of the day, the viewer will be notified and the artifact will be delivered from the Mission Expedition set directly to the viewer's home. Nearly 200 of the featured miniature artifacts are stand-ins for life-sized items – totaling more than $10K in value! Try it our for yourself. It’s really fun!
