So many people told me at RECON that they were eager to watch Jason Richard’s tech session over and over again. It’s loaded with fantastic information for the aspiring escape room technologist. During RECON, this talk inspired an impromptu 2-hour conversation in the escape room tech channel, so we are thrilled to share it once again with the community:
Don’t forget to check out this companion document compiled by Hivemind reviewer Brett Kuehner. It’s loaded with all of the tools and programs that Jason references.

Abstract: Jason Richard is a self-taught escape room technologist. With solid game design principles realized through technology, he has invigorated his games. In this talk, you enter Jason’s workshop for an introduction to tools and techniques that you can use in your escape room – everything from how to solder to working with raspberry pi and arduino. Coming away from this talk, you’ll have the direction you need to dive into escape room technology. He can’t make you an expert, but he can set you on your path.
