Putting it all Together
Given that you
have heard about the basics of VR and AR in class, and done some
projects to get a better handle on the application development side of
things, and recently seen a variety of current work in the area, this
week the class is going to break into groups of 3 or 4 and brainstorm on
creating a VR or AR experience for a particular problem, as though you
were a small company trying to pitch this idea, to try and pull a lot of
these ideas together.
Tuesday's class should be devoted to data gathering, coming up with the
general concept for the experience, and agreeing on the technology that
you propose to use. At the end of Tuesday's class your group should
email andy the location of a public webpage with your current set of
ideas (this can be a google doc or other shared publicly available
page), a selfie taken of your team in class, and the names of all the
members on your team.
Thursday's class should be devoted to refining the concepts and creating
a pitch, which should take the form of a webpage containing your
proposal, including sketches and drawings of what the experience would
be like. Note that you will not be graded on the quality of the sketches
or drawings, but they should be good enough to give the reader a good
idea what you are proposing. It should include a rough setup cost and
cost to run the experience, rough development timeline, how many people
would be able to participate, hardware requirements (both attached to
the person and remote), software and development requirements, staffing
requirements, location requirements, etc.
The experience you design should be implementable on existing technology
- that is if someone wanted to fund you to create this experience, you
should be able to buy all of the necessary hardware off the shelf.
The topic for your experience is ...
