Final Project – Responsive Wearables

In 2020, one of the biggest treasure is to experience the time in outdoor. In the time when we need to carefully think about distancing to other people and gearing up ourselves with masks, gloves and sanitizer, I design this interactive game to explore with the idea of using garments as an responsive exterior shell to protect ourselves and create personal boundaries.

By moving the mouse, the character is able to wondering in this projected scenery with colorful reference object. For the design of the character, there are two mode in response to two situations. The character begins with wearing a normal scale clothes. When the player pressed the mouse, the character switch to the inflatables garment set with an “alert” sign.

One of the biggest challenge I encountered with when programming this game is making paneling affect on the canvas. The canvas visually works as a camera frame that shifting with the location of the mouse. If I further develop this program, I hope to have the alert character setting on when the character intersect with every bubble in the arrays.
