MIT MediaLab Hackathon 2017
Role: Interaction Designer
Tool: AR.js, Unity, Aframe, Vuforia
Team: Amanda Lee, Jina Jung
The initial idea for Future Exhibition is to explore a new way to promote current exhibition in Museums and encourage people go to out see artwork in person. We use the posters on the street as the target to triggering AR content. This playful interaction can get majority closer to the Museum and artworks and less intimidated by them.
User can explore AR contents by scanning the posters in subway or on the street through the phone. After scan, the augmented art piece will pop up. User can also see the information of current exhibitions after the interaction. They can show the screenshot of the AR experience at next museum visit to get an exclusive postcard for free.
The marker designs are inspired by museum space, and for Future Exhibition project, is based on the physical space of MOMA
Prototype in Vuforia:
The technology used for Future Exhibition are mainly AR.js, Unity. The main reason for choosing AR.js as the platform is because AR.js is a web based AR tool, user can access it through a web url. It does not require additional application or downloads.
