Hello, we are a small group of three from AUT, who are working together to help create a prototype five-page coloring-in Augmented Reality booklet for Cheekee Tales.
So far we have completed page one of the five-page booklet, which, while it does seem underwhelming is actually a massive achievement. We have most of the characters fully modeled, textured and rendered in AR, We have the first page fully designed and we have a working AR application that can scan the first page and create an AR scene from the page.
Right now we are working on the second and third pages of the five-page booklet. Guide is currently designing the pages, Jordan is working on implementing the new pages into the Augmented Reality App that he designed, While Michael is designing and modeling terrain for the scenes.
We all choose to work on Cheekee Tales because of how important it is to support those in need, and each of us felt that this booklet would be the best way we could help right now. Each of us has our own skills that help us make this dream a reality, Guide with his graphical design skills, Jordan with his knowledge of Augmented Reality and Michael with his passion for 3D modeling.
Hi, I’m Jordan, I’m one of the people doing this project. I am a child at heart with a love of toys such as lego and nerf and I like helping people who can’t help themselves. So I thought that by working on Cheekee Tales I could use my skills and passions to help those in need.
Hello, I’m Guide. I am an international student from Thailand. I want the project to come to life not only because I want to make a portfolio for myself, but also because I want to help create innovation in the future, and Cheekee Tales is that innovation.
Hey! I’m Michael Southon, the only first-year within our group. I was asked to join the group by Jordan, because he knew how passionate I am about 3D modeling. I hope that when the Cheekee Tales AR colouring books can be found in children's hospitals around the world, I can look back at them and say “I helped make that”.
