The AR & VR project for medical model. Animated heart. magic school bus project at the University of Cincinnati.
Two installations using Microsoft Hololens
Ming Tang and Mara Marcu’s project “Augmented Coral” is exhibited at t he Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) 2017 Conference at MIT. Boston, MA. Nov.2-4. 2017. The project is also published in the In Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) 2017 Conference proceeding. Mara Marcu presented the project at the ACADIA 2017 project seminar, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA on Nov 1st. 2017. You can check out the exhibition pictures here. Book publication is available here.
Our project has been shortlisted to for a 2018 Crystal Cabin Award! Students and faculty at the University of Cincinnati and the Live Well Collaborative developed the Virtual Assistant, Boeing Onboard, in the Spring of 2017. Boeing Onboard is a virtual assistant combined with a holographic interface which all passengers have access to onboard planes. Through augmented reality and wearable glasses, Boeing Onboard has the ability to provide passengers with valuable information, such as safety demonstrations, in-flight entertainment, and web browsing. Boeing Onboard is an in-flight concierge service connecting the passenger to all the resources and information the passenger needs for the ultimate travel experience.

Recent project with holographic model. control material, lighting with gesture.
Recent project with holographic model exhibited at at UC Live Well Collaborative during IDSA 2017 Central Conference , hosted by the School of Design.
Ming Tang and Mara Marcu coordinated the gallery exhibition in SOFA Expo Chicago. ( Sculpture Object and Functional Art and Design). The exhibition featured works from faculty and students from School of Art, School of Architecture & Interior Design. Exhibition Hall. Navy Pier, Chicago. Nov2-6. 2016.
The installation has three components. Smaller artifacts expand on the notion of architectural structure and collectively create a catalogue of “misbehaved” tectonics. Larger ceramic and polypropylene prototypes speculate on the role of architectural pleats and on the metamorphosis of two dimensional material to three dimensional form. Several hologram digital models created onsite obsess over the possibility of endless variation through human interaction, the natural versus the artificial, and“ the-everything-else” that lies in between.
Screen capture of animated sculpture with MS Hololens ( Augmented Reality). We are not able to capture the video during SOFA exhibition. here is a test demon captured in my office to illustrate the animated forms. Thanks Mike Gasaway to set up the animation.
new test of MS HoloLens.
