Project Description

On behalf of the Paul W And E Carol Schafer Foundation For Centriolar Research, the overarching purpose of the clients’ research is to disseminate the theory regarding the role centrioles play in cancer tumor formation. While there are many options for creating sophisticated three-dimensional models of centriole assembly in stationary technology, what the client seeks herein is an easily deployed augmented reality product demonstrating spatially, microtubule assembly. This AR product should be highly portable and engaging – appropriate for the “elevator speech” concerning centriole assembly.

UCSIM will develop a Deployable, Portable AR Centriole Assembly augmented reality mobile application that can be used as a demonstrable product. Included in the total deliverables are the 2D trigger images of the centriole microtubule to be augmented, and an augmented reality mobile application for accessing the augmented imaging (Android and iOS) and computer graphic modeling necessary to support the final product.
