I have done on the UX research to start building wireframes for my product. I kinda figure out how it would look like

At the same time, I was looking around to see how would I develop the technology part.

My original ideas that it would work smoothly as this:

I tried several tutorials online and figure out hand recognition function, however, it doesn’t work as fast as required. It can only detect the hand if the hand stays still. It is quite lame though. Pictures below:

hadn-detection

In this pressure time, I come up with 2 options to resolve this:

  • I need to adjust my design, guide users slowly slowly
  • Or I have to find a way to optimize the process

Well I think I will go safe by the first option, at the same time I talked to my friend in AI field, asking for some advice and guidance. His explanation is pretty hard to digest so I decided to ignore this and go on with the first solution.

 

After getting familiar with the Blender UI and several key sections, all you need to do is follow this video:

I admire Shading Node Editor of Blender, what a charming visual coding languge

My final result of the diamond ring:

Unlike other students who started their work at early June, I started at late July because of my personal circumstance: I’m getting married while doing my personal project at the same time.

My pre-wedding day happened on 28 June and because of COVID situation and this new distraction, I completely went off the track for the whole month (June, I mean).

However, thank to this brand new experience, I came up with an amusing idea: RingOn – An AR app allows users to try jewellery on their hand.

The idea is cheerfully approved by my supervisor, he also commented that this brought great potential into the future.
