This is a project for the course of Mixed Reality.
Collaborator: Xize Li, Hung Lac
My responsibilities are concept, user research, app interface design, ThreeJS development
Tools and technologies
The application is built on Argon 2 platform.
The bubbles on the screen are threejs objects.

How did we come up with this idea ?
First, a Comparative review was done to analyze existing Augumented Reality products.
Then we brainstormed some ideas and did some field studies. We decide to focus our project on The King Center because:
- Martin Luther King Jr. is the spirit of Auburn Avenue, the spirit of African American and the spirit of freedom
- The King Center is a very attractive spot which attracts different kinds of visitors (tourists, students, researchers, politicians and etc.)
- A large pool, live music and the walk of freedom creates an eternal spirit of Martin Luther King Jr.
Early Stage Concept
- A survey was created to collect data for analyzing the representational forms of the dreams.
- A narration method was used to get users’ feedback of the application.
The application can link to the database of the King Center.
The dreams can be shown by their time of creation, popularity or where the users come from.
The users can use the application anywhere on Auburn Ave.
