3D Prototypes

In 2035, the Global Digital ID is a self-sovereign identification system that is backed by a secure and robust blockchain network, accessed through multi-factor biometric verification that provides each and every citizen a means of owning all of their personally identifying data.

How can we interpret and design based on insights and observations of our society in its current state to project how life will shift in the future?

Our digital identities contain bodies of information regarding who we are, and what we think, feel and do.

This augments our ability to interact with tools, environments and the people around us through different touch points in the ever-increasing number of interfaces.

The Speculative Future of Global Identification

An account of imaginary and events told for entertainment.

An account of past events in someone's life or in the evolution of something.

Explores how the machine vision models interpret a simple human input and context to author unexpected AR content. 


Users can share their sketch with friends for them to add to and view in the network. 


Generates unique 3D objects based on the sketch inference, as well as, the objects, spaces, and people recognized in the scene.


Evolution of the English Alphabet

Simple letterforms evolve over time to have a deeper meaning for humans

How would something like this work for the future of machines? what meaning would they derive from simple drawings?

"What if the machine could create deeper meaning out of simple gestural illustrations which humans created? How could this evolve over time?"

We were able to signify the technology in which machine learning can identify a 2D image into a whole new 3D Assets.

Asset changes based on context and environment: Sketch becomes a surfboard on the sand and when users moves the camera to the ocean it transforms into a shark.

Animation exploration of how assets can morph between one another in real time.

Making it Social: Sketches can be shared but will always be different based on what’s in the environment
