Rocket Builder

Ongoing project being developed as part of my graduate studies at NCSU. Learn the basic physics of space travel by building a rocket out of simple square shapes and deploying it into a solar-system environment.

Paper Town VR

Interactive art installation, created as a group project during my undergrad studies. A user utilizes a VR headset to see a miniature papercraft village through a live camera. As the user turns in space, a mechanism rotates the camera in real time so as to accommodate the new viewing angle.

I was responsible for programming the physical mechanism which rotates the camera, as well as the VR-enabled Unity scene, and essentially getting the two to communicate nicely with each other.

This installation ended up getting some traction in the tech/art community, and was featured at the ACM Siggraph conference in Los Angeles, California.

Australian Safari

Augmented-reality scavenger hunt, created as a collaboration between the NCSU College of Sciences and the College of Design. Users leave the application running on their phone as they follow clues to various real-world locations on the NCSU campus. Bluetooth beacons installed at each of these locations trigger an event which displays an educational video about a unique Australian animal.

I was responsible for programming and publishing the app, as well as integrating the Bluetooth beacon functionality which is the foundation of the experience.

From what I understand, at the time of this writing the beacons are actually still functional, so you can still download the app and try out the safari if you feel so inclined.
