Taste of Technology: Feel so(cial) good in every byte!

General description

In a hot, shiny day, in the turquoise coast of Aegean Sea near to lovely town called Marmaris; divers found a mysterious, small pyramid deep down the sea… The moment they carried the ancient-looked pyramid out of the sea, something shocking happened!

Little gears on the pyramid started to work, and the pyramid started to open!

When the divers realized that pyramid was a case, and there was a high-tech electronic system in it, they immediately got contact with people from METU and asked for a group of researchers. The group immediately gathered. Yes, you guessed it right; that group was LBG Ankara!

What LBG Ankara found was that “the pearl” of the pyramid case is actually something ahead of its time. A technology that can save us all! And now, LBG Ankara are asking for YOU to help them to discover the ways of this technology to use for the good of all mankind.

Now, the question is; will you dare to take the challenge and join us in Marmaris to Taste the technology and feel so(cial) goods in every byte?
