07 Tech Tuesday – The Live Park

The Live Park – An interactive multi-media experience/theme park in Korea just north of Seoul.

Here is a write up of what I was able to glean from internet research on this new venue.

It is interesting that this is the “First Episode,” it is a highly themed experience that will run for a year or so, and then I assume a “Second Episode” will be designed and produced for it.
