Designing Information Spaces for Augmented Reality

Immersive technology allows creators to engage users in new and novel ways, many of which can make the interactions users have with information easier or more meaningful. This project will look at a four different storytelling formats that exist today (a cooking blog, a sports broadcast, a web interactive and a podcast) and reimagine them for augmented reality using tools like Torch for iOS and Magic Leap’s Create tool.
