More Details

        Re-Present is a semester-long project held at Carnegie Mellon University’s Entertainment Technology Center during Fall 2018. Our goal is to design and deliver a Virtual Reality application that help students improve their public speaking skills – in terms of Body Gesture, Eye Contact, and Vocal Delivery – through practice and reflection.

        The experience is divided into 2 distinct modes:

        The first is the Practice Mode, a recording booth in which the User practices and records his/her presentation performance.

        Once finished, the performance is then stored and replayed in the Review Mode , in which the User reviews his/her performance by re-experiencing it from the perspective of an audience.

        This is a current project I'm working on, more stories are coming up soon!
