Augmented Reality Final: Taco and Watermelon


After crowd-sourcing for art pieces, Allie and I teamed up to make the talking taco that someone had created come to life. We paired the taco, whom we name Jocelyn, with a watermelon sculpture. Adding textures, lawn chairs and dialogue between Jocelyn and her friend the Watermelon, we created a cartoonish scene. Then using the Layar app, we directed the object into the Jocelyn and her friend the Watermelon have been friends for forever. They decided to catch some rays on the KC lawn when Jocelyn noticed a bit in the Watermelon and the conversation pursued from there.
