Say hello to ‘Home’, your virtual pathway towards fighting isolation.
For this thesis, I intend on creating a Mobile VR Application, with support for Google Cardboard View. In this application, I would be implementing features through which the user could travel around the streets of his hometown, or enter his room, or even travel to a place which he might have visited previously. As the user virtually enters a place, he can stand and view everything around him. As he walks, memories would pop up on the screen, and the user can select any memory and view it in his virtual space, this could be an image, a video, a 360 image, or even a 360 video.
For my final prototype, I created a mobile VR Application Called Home. Home is your virtual path to overcoming a sensation of isolation and loneliness. Through Home, an individual could enter into a Virtual World, walk down his memory lane, and relive a few memories. He could also view a few memories as it happens without actually having to physically be present in that location.
Come, let me take you ‘Home‘
I did conduct my presentation in front of my roommate and good friend, Rugved. He did assist me in slowing down at a few points since it was not easy for him to follow. He also told me to focus my attention more on my prototype journey and research. Most importantly, he told me to speak slowly.
