Innovation Design Engineering (MA/MSc)
The Missing Reality is a software-based assistant which helps you re-connect with the physical environment when your sight focus is on the phone screen. It timely indicates what you need to capture from surroundings. The Missing Reality has 3 basic features (Privacy, Traffic & Social Connection). As an open-source platform, it allows users/developers to extend its usage and explore more possibilities.

Platform — How Platform Works
From the early academic research to observation and series of EXPs, interviewing and analysing user mind- set, I found out that use of mobile phones while walking is a incredibly critical and subconscious behavior. The fundamental challenge is how to inform users when their sight focus is on the phone screen.
There are 2 key steps of this project on its roadmap. First of all, it empowers users to capture surrounding information in the time period of using phone, in order to avoid the dangers and potential social influence from environment. Secondly, It provides a platform that allows users to customize more objects they want to capture through the same technology, a second lens to augment themselves.
