Posted 2 years ago and submitted by Scott Balmer | Share link:

I Made this illustration for the latest issue of BBC Science Focus magazine for the Aleks Krotoski column talking about an old alternate reality card game from the early 2000s, in which the player solves puzzles both in the game world and real world.

One puzzle was of a picture of a man with the Japanese text “Find Me” this caused a large worldwide search for this person, but to no avail, that is until technology caught up to the point that this puzzle was solved with the help of AI which was able to identify the man and finally solved who this person was.
