First Steps on the Moon

How AR can enhance the storytelling of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing?


The AR experience takes audience from their current environment to the moment when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin first landed on the Moon on July 20th, 1969. User taps objects in AR to hear and learn more about the fun facts happened 238,900 miles away from Earth 50 years ago.


February 2019, my team is selected for a fellowship with NYC Media Lab partnered with Associated Press to explore the visualization of health and science news in augmented reality by creating and testing prototypes with users and publishing the results. 

This is an on-going project. If you are interested in chatting, feel free to reach out. The project will soon be updated after the Demo Day at Brooklyn Navy Yard on April 11. Come and check it out - register here. Cheers!


Scope : 12 weeks
Team : Abhinav Sircar, Andy Kang, Crystal Wang
