Summary
User Experience research and development of future interactions seeking to humanize holographic technology.
Overview and Role
The Centre for Digital Media graduate students team: Out of The Box, was asked to create a product that utilized the features of H+ Technology’s holographic display box – Holus.
In the span of 13 weeks, Team Out of the Box pitched 11 ideas, developed 3 prototypes and created a Vertical Slice (demonstration) of the interaction with a Holographic Home Assistant.
I worked as a 3D Artist and Technical Artist: modelling and animating the character.  Additionally, doing Technical Research and Development and Project Management. I was responsible for organizing, researching, and documenting the platform’s best practices.
The project was well received by the clients and was used to support a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $297,790 CAD.
