We had a great turnout for Final Presentations with 48 guests in the room, and an additional 25 via Skype from the mothership in Pittsburgh. Each team did a 15 minute presentation with about a five minute Q&A session. The presentations were followed by live demos for guests to play.

We changed things up this semester for our quarter presentations and invited guests to visit our team spaces to try out early demos instead of watching formal presentations. A casual buffet lunch was provided, and our visitors walked through brief explanations and demos at their own pace. We shot a first person video of each team to give you a feeling for what the experience was like.

Team-Illusions
Team Illusions aims to bring a new dimension to Augmented Reality by creating a multi-player game using Epson’s Moverio BT-200 glasses.

It is an Augmented Reality experience rather than a Virtual Reality experience that will encourage the players to interact with the real world rather than just with floating screens in-front of them. Players will interact with the environment, with each other and with the virtual objects or characters overlaid into the real world. We aim to engage two or more players in an experience that is unique from what is possible in the real world or on phones/tablets. The game will be able to be played at different locations.

Our aim is to create an engaging experience that is fun, easy to learn, and easy to setup for the audience. This game is unique in its own way because it will use all the advantages of Wearable AR technology to create an Augmented Reality experience.
