Z.A.R.I

Zorkish Augmented Reality Interface

My initial concept was to experiment with a new emerging technology used for interaction and integrate it with an older generation game. In creating a new interface for an old, arguably outdated game style, this could spark new interest in the game and possibly inspire new uses for the new technology.

I created a simple 3D map in Google Sketch up which formed the background of each step in the adventure game

After creating the map I created the map image for use within the game.

I created a basic app which allows users to create the different AR codes on their phones. This allows users to control the game using only their phone and the webcam. As all of the code assigning AR commands is dynamic and based on variables, it is easy to change the game to be different every time you play.
