Series of documentation that archives my process and experiments with Augmented Reality tools.
Domino AR 
I was experimenting with dominos inside Reality Composer's physics simulation, then a random dark matter appeared out of no where... ⚫️
Software: Blender, Reality Composer 
Hardware: iPad Pro 2021
Plasma Shader Orb

Originally the idea was to investigate how Unity's Shader Graph tool could work in AR. The project then progressed into testing to see if the 'plasma' shader could also deform and distort my physical surroundings, including my hands. 👋🏽
 
Software: Unity 
Hardware: iPhone 12 Pro
Portal Particle
I was curious about how Unity's Particle System would work in AR. The most time consuming portion went to the settings in Unity. ⚙️
Software: Unity, ARKit
Hardware: iPhone 12 Pro
2D GreasePencil →  3D →  AR
Having spent 4 years teaching myself 3D modeling in Autodesk Maya. I have no plans on switching softwares to blender. That was until I came across Blender's GreasePencil tool. Being able to quickly sketches line drawings, then convert them into 3D meshes, and optimize them for AR is mind blowing. 🤯
This is an extraordinary tool for the future generations of storytellers, architects, artists, and designers. 
Software Pipeline: Astro Pad + Blender [GreasePencil Tool] → Convert to Mesh  → Reality Converter → Reality Composer 
Hardware: iPad Pro 2021, Apple Pencil (for drawing)
Bitsharm 
My MFA thesis project, Bitsharm, is an Augmented Reality (AR) application that is a step-by-step interaction via the use of an iPhone. By utilizing iPhone12 Pro's LiDAR and AR capabilities, the application creates an immersive playful experience. Inside Bitsharm, there are series of levels and objectives the player will have to learn about and engage with in order to proceed to the next steps.
