AR face effects

Timeline: 2 days each | June - July 2018
My Involvement: 3D Modeling, Visual Programming
Tools: Fusion 360, Cinema4D, ARStudio

I designed a face-tracked effect with to explore the nuances of facial interactions, and try out visual programming as a new mode of prototyping interactions.

Try it out below. Don't forget to smile!

To practice my 3D modeling skills in Cinema4D and experiment with 3D occlusions, I designed the avocado 🥑effect. The effect also served as a stress-test for multi-face tracking on mobile.

Get a friend (or a couple of friends) and try it out below!
