Rwanda Vurtual Visit

This project is an attempt to respond to not only people who often ask me where I am from, but also, it is an occasion for me to connect myself to my country Rwanda, by using images and sounds in a virtual reality. I wanted to create a virtual visit to my home country.

Why We Sleep: The VR Experience

This project is a Unity virtual reality experience based on insights I gained while reading the book, "Why We Sleep", by Dr. Matthew Walker. It allows the user to go through a nightly routine of habits that collectively improve one's "sleep hygiene" and promote higher quality of sleep.

Now You See Me

In making an effort to challenge the role of seeing and being seen in the digital space, this filter claim the rights of gazing. While the traditional technologies of projection put people under spotlight, here I create moment when the role flip around.

AR Glasses Prototype for Exploring Nature

This project is a prototype of an augmented reality glasses application for the purpose of exploring nature. The user can navigate the application via a combination of voice interface and hand gestures. It can enhance the user experience by displaying environment data such as an interactive map, information on animals and plants, and historical facts on the region. Furthermore, the user can explore various interactive "points-of-interest" scattered around the environment in order to further engage with their surroundings.
