Augmented Reality Mortarboard HSRW 2019

Fig.1 Augmented reality on the graduation cab


I was inspired by an MIT graduate student who has done a similar project for her graduation cab, so I decided to try to make one as well. For the design, I used a vinyl cutter to make a sticker to put it on the top of my graduation cap.

The animation was made with illustrator by making like 50 images. Illustrator was the most familiar software for me, and I just got three days before my bachelor graduation ceremony.

For the Augmented Reality tracking, Artivive was perfectly matched my purpose. It is an online tool where we can upload "a fingerprint" of an art piece. Then overlay a video file on the top of the design.
