Placing Ourselves in the Future

Exploring Augmented Reality in Clothing

Our First Prototype

Sketches

Our Tools

  • Unity : a game development platform. We used this to create our augmented reality scenes.
  • Vuforia : an augmented reality SDK for mobile devices that uses Computer Vision technology to recognize and track planar images (Image Targets) in real-time. We used this to be able to use our phones to be able to see the AR on the shirts.
  • Cinema 4D : a 3D modeling, animation, motion graphic and rendering software. We used this to create our animations that would be rendered for the AR objects on the shirts.

User Testing

  • T-shirt with a large version of the fiducial image in the center of the shirt
  • T-shirt with a smaller version of the fiducial image on the sleeve
