Water bottles are around us daily. Have you ever think about why is so cheap when it might take ages to produce a bottle of water and we might drink up in 1 minute? How much resource and manpower involved in the production? So we start to brainstorming about the story behind it.
AR provides opportunities for us to not only augment reality but also unveil the hidden side of the reality.
Technological products have significantly improved our daily life. We enjoy the convenience they provide but most of us rarely think about the issues behind these products. Through the project, we want to promote an awareness of these issues, discussing the negative influences which these high technology products bring out. Our team believes that all products have their own story and are valuable enough to be shared, so we could learn and cherish the hidden efforts and impact.
Team 84 is here to reveal them with our AR Product.
