Are you muddled by Minecraft? Is it really worth 2.5 billion dollars? Are there any positive benefits to it? What happens when you actively engage with young people and Minecraft? Are you worried that your children spend far too much time in a world you simply don’t understand?
Lecturer Tom Flint has been studying Minecraft from a psychological point of view for the past 4 years. His latest project is a mixed reality game created in collaboration with Jupiter Artland and pupils from Ratho Primary School for the Edinburgh International Science Festival. This talk will cover 3 topics:
A tourist’s guide to Minecraft
Positive uses of Minecraft.
Jupiter Artland in Minecraft.

Here you can find all the photos from this years immensely successful launch night. Press, Members of the public, friends and Family all joined together to help our students celebrate the incredible work produced for 2016’s final year projects.
It was an eventful evening with one of the best turnouts Napier has ever had! With a whole host of awards given and a fair few bottles of bubbly drank (Courtesy of Tennants), we believe it was one of the best launch nights yet!
You can see all the images from the evening below.

The winner of this years degree show’s product design best in show award is graduate Fraser Hunter.
Fraser won the award for his revolutionary new shoe design that may change the lives of thousands of people. “Safi shoes” use recycled materials to protect the foot from a deadly disease known as Tungiasis, which is caused by the chigoe flea burrowing into the feet and laying eggs.
The disease is especially prominent in African communities where treatment is both expensive and difficult to reach. It is for this reason that Fraser created the Safi shoes to prevent the spread of the disease and help poor African communities.
We caught up With Fraser after receiving his award to see how he felt.
