Social Interactions

AR Experience

Multi-Player Game

Next-AR is a Carnegie Mellon University Entertainment Technology Center Silicon Valley (CMU ETC-SV) student project that is creating a multi-player social augmented reality(AR) experience for players who are not necessarily in the same physical space.

Since AR technology has been widely used in many fields mostly as a single-player experience in recent years, our team decided to explore more especially in whether the technology can be used to establish social connections and enhance relationships between players. We use various gesture interactions combining with shared virtual space forms to achieve an intuitive and innovative social AR experience.
