We make AR books with extraordinary effects and make stories come to life to provide a stimulating learning experience for children. We re-imagine how the next generation can experience the illustrated stories in a playful, immersive and inspiring way.
What it does
In this demo, we've augmented a children book "Yayoi Kusama: From Here to Infinity." This colorful children book illustrates the life stories of the artist, Yayoi Kusama, who grew up with nature and was in love with art, suddenly found herself had a vision that everything in the world was covered by arrays of polka dots. We've created 7 popup 3D scenes to encourage children to step into the infinity reality with Yayoi Kusama and get inspirations from her life story.
How I built it
We created AR contents popping up from different pages of the book by using Vuforia in Unity. And we used Nreal for the mixed reality experiences.
Challenges I ran into
Integrated AR contents and effects across different platforms
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We learned how to integrate AR contents with Nreal. We've created 7 scenes inspired by the story of the children book.
What we learned
We learned how AR can be a powerful tool to educate children and facilitate a better learning experience.
What's next for Magic Dots
We would like to provide more AR interactions for users to learn, enjoy and play with the book and build an AR app to share these interactive stories with kids and their parents all over the world.
