A social experience of collecting and creating.

März 2017 bis Juli 2017
Giebichenstein Designpreis

By using MoodCatch, you will be enabled to create and share spatial collages and pinboards from impressions throughout your life. Every detail in your view can be gathered by simply framing it with the magic leap’s controller. These impression build up the personal collection of every user and represent the foundation of the spatial pinboards.

Take impressions from your collection and combine them around you. Define your style with life-sized fashion pieces or enhance your architectural model with the real world surroundings. Build your creative space or take it with you in its entirety...

Catching an impression (concept)

Impressions are two-dimensional holograms that can be placed and combined in three dimensions around the user. By tracing around the desired subject, the camera of the Magic Leap will take a picture that is masked according to the path of the controller. A unique style is generated by these masks. That combined with other impressions and different brushes defines a joint design.

Creating a collage (concept)

Collages are made from these impressions. The users combine multiple Impressions by resizing, placing and remasking to create spatial collages around them or in miniature. They can take their collages wherever they go and share them with other users in person or via the internet.

Movement of impressions inside the prototype (prototype)

While studying we produced a prototype using the Microsoft Hololens. We wanted to cross borders between different media. By using the camera it becomes irrelevant whether the captured impression is in the real world or on a screen. There is no more printing and no complicated data transfer between different platforms. This way we can easily work out ideas and define the space around us.
