Immersive Platform Design

Eric Hawkinson, Founder, ARientation

ARientation allows anyone to connect any digital contents to a set of special playing cards. Those playing cards can be printed out or purchased. Once you have some cards or images of the cards, you can use the ARientation app to see what contents, games, environments, and other projects others have created. You can also use this website to connect your own content to the cards. Once you do, you can then allow others to view your content. With this concept you can have cards play online videos, show websites, offer interactive web content, play audio, show images, or display almost any bit of information from the internet.

After 5 years of developing augmented reality educational materials, Eric Hawkinson, founder of ARientation, an augmented reality platform geared towards learning and engagement. The platform allows less technically inclined students and teachers to create and share AR enhanced content and environments.
