ARt Hunt

Overview

An augmented reality app created for a local artist who had some interesting ideas on how to engage Calgarians with the art in the city. It ended up being an app with several art-themed AR demos.

Roles & Reponsibilities

iOS Developer

Swift, ARKit

Gained medium proficiency in Swift (built on with ivy). Gained basic understanding of ARKit.

The project was a team-based effort. I created two AR demos and contributed to the infrastructure of the app. For my first demo I built an emoji reaction placer that was supposed to be used in art galleries to allow visitors to express what they thought of the pieces. The second demo gave the user an ability to virtually draw on real surfaces with different colors. Both my demos were persistent, i.e. the app remembered what the user had done in the given location. I learned basics of augmented reality design while creating a fun experience for the user.
