AR Scavenger Hunt Game – Guests in the Developer Lounge can win money for charity by searching for chess pieces with their phone cameras, by downloading a special app. Find the scavenger hunt image and a 3D Java Duke appears on the screen with a quiz on the JavaFX 11 platform. For each correct answer on the scavenger hunt, Oracle will donate money to Iridescent, a science, engineering and technology education nonprofit organization that empowers underrepresented young people to become self-motivated learners, inventors and leaders. A leaderboard in the Oracle Code One Developer Lounge will show the number of players, the number of correct answers and how much money has been raised for Iridescent.
