Augmented reality design for friendship and intimacy during quarantine times.
The Plants AR app uses plants as a metaphor for friendship. Created to address the soul-crushing isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic as it swept the world and scattered our classmates at every corner of the world.
Design and research by Hajir Al Khusaibi, Ri Le, YY Teng, Ian Wach, and Katherine Ye Xiong.
Final project for User Centered Design for Augmented Spatial Information Spring 2020, taught by Agnes Chang and Ann Harakawa of Two Twelve.
