Footprint

Learning about history isn't just confined to a textbook. 

 

In my Mixed Reality Design course at Georgia Tech, I collaborated with five colleagues in order to design and prototype a social media application that utilizes augmented reality to view the history of Auburn Avenue.

 

Opportunity

In the early stages of development, Footprint was aimed to be an application that allows users to annotate Auburn Avenue - a historical landmark in Georgia. Users would be able to use AR to see exactly where posts were made, where nearby posts are and make a post themselves.

Insight

By the end of this experience, I gained valuable insight regarding teamwork, UX/UI design and branding design. This was my first time going through the design process, and I am proud of my contributions to the project. If we were given more time for the assignment, we would have loved to conduct some user testing to get participatory design data for further improvements. 

Interface Design

Through multiple group brainstorm sessions, we were able to come up with low-fidelity sketches of app functionality. Some of these functionalities include having 3-D navigation arrows, newsfeeds and posts. The app would allow users to explore the city, be led to nearby posts, and display augmented posts based on the user's location.
