One day I was waiting for a bus by looking at different versions of myself using Instagram's filters. I decided to use this experience to generate cultural awareness amongst Aggies by enabling them to see their different 'cultural' selves.
What it does
With a body-sized display, Aggies can see themselves dressed up as per the culture whose festival is being celebrated that day.
How I built it
We built this prototype using Adobe Photoshop, Video Editor, and Microsoft Powerpoint software.
Challenges I ran into
The biggest challenge was to devise something easy to use, familiar, and at the same time, achieves the objective of generating cultural awareness amongst Aggies.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Visualizing the project concepts through images.
What I learned
The importance of considering different perspectives while creating a product. Also, the diverse skills and experiences that different cultures can bring to the table.
What's next for The Mystique
Finding sponsorship, followed by creating and testing a minimum viable product for select bus stops.
