Project Description

Build a novel 3D interface for AR/VR/XR with a number of potential gesture-based encounters. We may use Unity, Unreal, or NCSoft gaming technologies (e.g., Guild Wars 2 due to its exemplary strong diversity of player representations) since with access we would explore using it as a testbed for rapid prototyping and iterative experiments. Particularly, we are interested in the avatar/character creator and relevant technologies for staging narrative events.
