My City in Virtual Reality

Why do we need Virtual Reality?

Virtual Reality is becoming popular day by day. Using this technology, users can feel the virtual experience of the places. The Gold Coast is hosting the Commonwealth 2018 Games. The Gold Coast is going to attract more visitors from all over the world for this event.

Bringing Data to the Table

Team Name: 

This project is about putting data in the every day objects we interact with so the public can learn and discover about their community without having to look for it. We have focused on furniture for a school setting that displays data about sociology and wildlife to encourage children to observe their daily surroundings and notice the things that are around them.



Time Walks

Team Name: 

Time Walks is a mobile first application making a trip down memory lane easy, enjoyable and interactive. Time Walks couples the accessibility provided by mobile phones and the power of Google Maps and knowledge of local cultural landmarks and conveniences from QLD Cultural and Heritage register, as well as Trove National Library of Australia.

There is living history all around us. Our rich cultural, social, and economic heritage can be found down our streets, in our parks and public spaces, in buildings, art and monuments.

Life Explorer

Team Name: 

Life Explorer is a mobile-based application that offers a platform for residents and travellers to discover events held within Brisbane.

Users are prompted to select an adjective that best describes the day they would like to have. This then generates a list of events that are correlated with that adjective in the eyes of those who previously attended them. The application also enables storytelling about events, allowing event-seekers to understand (and later experience) the city of Brisbane from a new set of eyes.
