With all the hype around Black Panther, I decided to do this assignment around this topic. Btw, the movie was dope!!!! I saw it twice.
The object I chose to augment was a remote. When the remote it tracked a TV appears and the trailer of Black Panther plays.
If I had more time I would have liked to incorporate virtual buttons which will let you change through movie trailers as you change the channel.
If you can Augment Anything
The Soundtrack/Black Panther Album for the movie Black Panther just dropped this morning and of course Kendrick Lamar was selected to do it. Kendrick and the Black Panther are culturally important to the Black community, especially now. So, if I could augment anything, it would be an interaction between Kendrick Lamar and Black Panther. They would probably be fighting side by side against villains. Kendrick’s character will be Kung Fu Kenny from his album Damn.
This video shows me using a virtual button to rotate a cube. In my next step I would want to use it to animate the characters in my previous project.
Multiple AR Trackers in Unity
This is a shows me using two images as AR trackers.
Commonly, gangs are known for their association with guns, drugs and violence.
This augmented reality piece aims to highlight a point in history when Bloods and Crips united during the Los Angeles Riots of 1992, and alternative narrative to gangs. This is an ongoing project and is in its early stages.
This project was created using Unity, Vuforia, Mixamo and Adobe Fuse.
Augment something in your home or any place (with any program that you are comfortable with)
For this assignment I augmented one of my drawings. There is a animation of a bird sitting on a street light looking around and airplane flying in the background. I also included audio of a bird chirping and a plane flying.
This is the original drawing.
