Building Augmented Reality Experiences with Unity3D - Abhishek Singh - CS50 Tech Talk
- Published on: Friday, July 7, 2017
- CS50 presents... a tech talk on augmented reality (AR) by Abhishek Singh, Resident Researcher at NYU.
"Watch this guy play Super Mario Bros. IRL in Central Park using HoloLens," says TechCrunch. Follow Abhishek at @shekitup.
This talk will cover the technical challenges and design considerations that go into creating AR experiences with the Hololens using Unity. I'll talk through my experiences in building the viral Hololens project in which I recreated Super Mario Bros as a life size first person experience.
Abhishek loves building things both physical and digital. He brings a fair amount of skills to the table - fabrication, programming (frontend and backend), circuit design, 3D modeling and printing, design, and even an undergrad degree in business. He also has previous experience founding and running three tech startups and is currently working on his fourth. He also has multiple web apps currently out in the wild, a shoe that you control and customize through your phone, a lifesize dragon that you sit on to control a virtual dragon in a VR experience, a robotic desktop assistant that responds to voice commands in gifs and an interactive installation that went up in Times Square among other things.
