An AR Social Media App for architectural students
This APP based on augmented reality aims to fulfill SCI-Arc students’ socialization during their academic life, especially for new students. In this platform, users can quickly encounter new friends and get more connections with acquaintances. In the beginning, registers need to comment on locations in the map where are prevalent and surrounding the SCI-Arc, and each others’ uploaded works in the City Gallary. According to their comments, the system will create more real and face-to-face socializing opportunities between users.

Based on our users’ requirements, our App will provide four primary services: $CI points and Navigation, AR Booth, Information Cloud, and City Gallery.
“$CI” points and Navigation:
SCI points are the currency in our App, which presents as a $CI logo that you can collect on the site. Like the actual currency, it can encourage you to complete more tasks, which is socializing with other registers. They will distribute between the user and tasks and work as navigation to guide one walking along with them for earning points and towards target tasks naturally.
For example, as the demo video shows, when my matched friends are in the vicinity, the SCI logo will appear as a dashed line in front of me. By walking along with them, I earned more $CI points and encountered a new friend on the other side of the line.
Also, like the money in the real world, you can spend it on other services in our App, such as the City Gallery and AR Booth.
