For my Augmented Reality Project, I created an informative video about Lisa Frank that played back when the Aurasma software detected the Lisa Frank Penguin Coloring Page in the 90s set up on the fourth floor of the Hurley Convergence Center. The trigger image is below and the informative video can be found HERE!

This week, we discussed storyboarding! I was surprised to find that I was the only person in class who knew what storyboarding was, because I thought it was common knowledge that visual planning went into creative works prior to their end result. Perhaps it’s the art major in me, but I’m used to making all sorts of storyboards!

I developed a storyboard for my Lisa Frank Augmented Reality project, and decided to make an informative video for it. Lots of people know Lisa Frank’s artwork, especially kids who grew up in the 80s and 90s, but I don’t think that they know it was her who created it. I want to give some insight to that!

For the past several classes, we have been talking about Pokemon Go! and Augmented Reality. If I had to compare my knowledge and digital literacy of Pokemon Go! to an actual Pokemon, it would have to be a Level 1 Rattata because I know nothing about it and am useless when it comes to it. I downloaded the app when it first came out, but then quickly decided it wasn’t worth learning and deleted it shortly thereafter.

However, I do have some knowledge about AR. Granted, it’s not a vast amount of knowledge, and I didn’t even know I had it until this class, but I know the basics. I do have a Snapchat and actively use it, and am always amused at the dancing hotdog dude and the wiggly purple guy. I didn’t know that was considered AR until we learned about it in class!

I’m also a big fan of Marvel (specifically Tony Stark aka Iron Man), so it was also really nifty to learn that the movie scenes with him and his HUD (heads up display) was AR also!
