Pepper Ghost Prototyping for Mobile
- Image or Video with BLACK or ALPHA Background
- 45degree tilted Transparent Acrylic(Thickness 1-2mm would be the best, even CD case is okay)
- Dark Environment
- Eye level (Actual Camera or Camera in Software) : Making a balance with final output
- Object : Sparkling materials can make it more 3d dimensionally volumetric
- Lighting : Focusing on object with natural light
This project is for people with disabilities, turning-on their limited world.
I heard that they are living in the totally different world by utilizing other senses. I intended to create this service to help them to be in safe.
To engineer this service, I wanted to utilize Augmented Reality with visual and audio elements.
I was mostly inspired by World Brush app which enables us to paint something based on GPS. Plus, I wanted to use traditional Street View on Google Map. Unfortunately, Google street view does NOT offer specific current status, so I want to combine their pros and cons into my service.
I wish that this service could be simultaneously updated ALWAYS-ON map for visionary and hearing-impaired, sharing valuable information one another.
The left screen is an initial landing page. On the lowest side, there is a tap-bar which contains UPLOAD, ON, and SETTING modules.
The upper side is for uploading contents which provide users with specific location and street view. They can paint some important information like a warning sign by using Brush and Paint tools.
As for a user side, lower screens, they will be able to figure out on-going warning notices when they move to other places with visual and hearing AR via image makers.
I intended to make a screen lock with animal characters by using swipe system.
Users can set their password with favorite six animals instead of boring numbers, for example, cow-fox-penguin-horse-tiger-chick and mouse.
Also, I utilized circular UI system, breaking the traditional rectangle module.
I intended to make a beatbox practicing app for a beginner. There are a bunch of basic techniques to learn it. Beatboxing is basically based on mouth shapes which directly influence on making sounds. Consequently, I utilized some visual and audio examples which allow beginners to easily mimic it. Actually, I wanted to make it by using GIF animation, but I failed.
Beyond practice, they can experience how they could be mixed as if randomly mixed notes. To engineer this, I used “RANDOM” function as “TRUE”. As a result, I believe one button interaction would be a generator for Beatboxing sounds.
