The Fort is an immersive experience with the intention of encouraging user connection. The idea comes from Skylar Jessen who I partnered with for this project. I assisted with creating the code to help make his idea come to life.
The Fort uses the CLM Trackr to take the facial expression of each user and use it as the base color for the bottom gradient. The top part of the gradient uses the volume of the two users’ vocal interaction. The bottom part uses individual’s happiness level for the cover. A third element was added for surprise. The surprise is attached to the opacity so it tints the image.
All of this will be projected on a fort to create an intimate experience and encourage the users to focus on one another rather than the technology.
