Carnegie Mellon’s Entertainment Technology Center (ETC) has teamed up with Walt Disney Parks and electronics company Siemens this semester to create a collection of arcade games called Project Spaceship Earth for Disney’s Epcot Center.
According to the Siemens website, this project is part of a 12-year alliance between Siemens and Disney. Siemens is a technology company devoted to creating a wide range of products, including communications, transportation, and power technologies.
Siemens has agreed to sponsor a post-show attraction for Spaceship Earth at Disney’s Epcot Center, which will become exhibits that relate to health care, transportation, and energy.
ETC master’s student DaeHong Kim said that Siemens recruited students from the ETC in Silicon Valley to create web-based games designed to teach gamers about Siemens. According to Kim, the games are intended for individuals between the ages of 10 and 14.
