What is the Real-World Metaverse?

The real-world metaverse is a parallel universe of digital information superimposed and anchored to the real world. It’s the difference between virtual reality, where your view is masked and entirely synthesized, and augmented reality, where your view is blended. This is an entirely new design space and an exciting opportunity to craft new hybrid experiences for learning, guidance, entertainment, and more.

What will you learn?

  • Key Design principles for augmented reality experiences
  • Tools for sketching over the world 
  • How to use 3D asset libraries to import models into game engines to prototype your ideas
  • Testing methods to get rapid feedback on your work

How will you learn it?

The world is large, and the real-world metaverse is even larger. To focus the workshop, we will explore one of the killer apps for AR: navigation and wayfinding. Teams of students will make a set of tours over land and Lake Como, using augmented marks or characters to guide people. 

Expect to get out into the world, get lost, and study how people find their way. We will build pathways and tracks on the ground and in the sky. Will the traditional symbology of road signs map across to AR? Or are there other metaphors from the world of gaming that better suit this new medium? 

Is this for you?

If you are interested in a hands-on week experimenting with new tools, with lots of team collaboration, mistakes, dead-ends, and laughter, this is a workshop for you! 

What do you need to bring to the workshop?

  • iPhone or tablet and a computer
  • Life jacket 


There is a maximum number of 20 places available for each workshop, first come, first served. Enrollment will be closed when the workshops are full.
