The Invisible Maze
Ava Aghakouchak and Maria Paneta
The Invisible Maze application is a part of a two phased study into whether 3D scanning technologies can be used as substitutive or enhancement devices for human sight. The application which was specifically designed for the Google Tango device, was an early prototype (2016) that was used to create low-res point cloud data of the surrounding environments and simultaneously track and analyze the user's position in relation to the boundaries of the scanned built environment. The application also featured the option to augment other 3d models within the existing spaces, which was an important tool in the study on Sarotis wearable as an amplifier of invisible spaces.
