My Contribution
Collaborating in a team of 26 students, I am working on designing, prototyping, and implementing every hand-based interaction such as palm block editor, palm locomotion controller in 1:1 scale view, status wristwatch, tutorials, and micro-interactions on block placement. Taking feedback from user testing every week, I closely collaborate with designers and the director to come up with viable interaction mechanics and visuals.
