In the summer of 2022, I interned at Conix Research Center working on a variety of different projects — mainly ARENAXR. The Augmented Reality Edge Network Architecture (ARENA) is a platform designed to simplify programming where there is a mix of virtual and physical systems. ARENA makes it easy to create and host multiple applications that interact with users and other agents in an immersive 3D environment created inside a browser.

I defined the user work flow for accessing menus within mixed reality. I also prototyped various spatial interface components and their interactions. I’m currently working on how to make interaction in AR/VR human. 

Work Flow

Designed a workflow for accessing menus within AR/VR. Menus are access through interacting with suspended volumetric icons that rotate around programs in space or around the user.  

Currently under further development - refining interaction and motion 🔧

Button Interactions

Short prototype demonstrating how users will interact with the interface across different platforms.
