Constellation

A Constellation repositions the meaning of a family. It expands our view of a linear branching organization to an orbiting dynamic group of individuals who establish meaningful relationships with each other.
Concept presentation

Story-telling Installation

I turned my user scenario into mini films that I shot in Berlin on a green screen. I post-processed them to look like they were a part of the story and then projection mapped them on tiles designed for each clip. I also installed the system diagram on the ceiling as an indicator of which part of Constellation the story is in currently. We setup a mini living room with a mockup for Polaris to the left of the user scenario. The TV on the right of the user scenario was connected to a webcam with the promotional graphic to mimic a virtual mirror. 

User testing

Foldable Display Simulation

It being a future-driven project I had to be mindful about the types of devices and displays we would have to deal with. So, I came up with a flexible UI concept that could show or hide features with the context of the use-case of the display. I used a Pico projector on two sandblasted pieces of acrylic that had the movement of a foldable display. 

Rapid prototyping

3D Printed Interactive Cups

To show how the visual cue would occur upon joining a Constellation, we designed cups that would be only complete in terms of design when they are joined together. Upon contact the base light would switch to the light animation as shown. The prototyping was done with the help of 3D printing and Arduino.

Polaris Prototype

The prototype for Polaris was made using sandblasted acrylic tiles. A madmapper scene was projection mapped on the tiles to recreate the interactions such as knocking and opening a door.
