role: Interaction Designer

software: ARKit 2, Xcode, Blender
hardware: iOS


AR Archaeology is a cooperative multiuser AR experience based on the show American Pickers on the History Channel.

Players can peek into the past and see what it’s like to play the roles of Mike and Frank to “pick” virtual antiques and uncover a slice of history.

Each player sees the same antique, but in different eras with unique audio components emanating from, including voice over clips from the show and sound effects. Together, they can drag items through space to the virtual van until their budget runs out.

Collaborators: Chian Huang (UX Design) & Xiao Ma (Developer)
