Co-located AR Experiences
HCI Research Intern @ Snap Inc.
My team recognized that tech is often isolating or disrupting to our in-person experiences. To explore this further my team and I designed and built 5 Augmented Reality (AR) Snapchat Lenses using Lens Studio to encourage and support playful in-person interactions.
Over my three-month internship, I brainstormed, designed, prototyped, studied, and analyzed the lens experiences. I also filed a patent that allows users to synchronize the start of a game without being digitally connected. Our findings are described in a paper that is in progress.
Working collaboratively with my team, I focused on the two Snap Lenses seen below.
