Following the award-winning Pedius project, e-Pedius employs crowdsourcing for the reassembly of digitalized wall painting fragments. Implemented in the form of a web and mobile game (for iOS, Android and Windows tablets), e-Pedius engages users with an affinity for solving jigsaw puzzles in the Slovene cultural heritage preservation process. Leader boards, achievements and the possibility to continue compositions from other users encourage users to compete as well as collaborate in order to achieve the final goal – reassembly of all fragmented wall paintings.
