AR Musical Amusements
Aero
As a kid, I looked forward to the fall carnival every year. The dazzling lights, the dizzying rides, the games of skill and strength; it all seemed like it came from a different, more magical reality. I knew that capturing the full nostalgia of an amusement park would only be possible with a full body, interactive experience, so it was the perfect project to take on in augmented reality using Adobe Aero. I hope you enjoy my creative take on the carnival classics and try them out yourself (in AR). Simply use the QR code below. Just like an amusement park, they are meant to be experienced, so I would love to see your videos and pictures. Share them on social media, then tag me (@dunawaysmith) and @AdobeAero.
What if amusement park rides were alive? ​​​​​​​
It all started with this simple question. I then set to prototyping a series of amusement park rides and games in AR using Adobe Aero. I wanted to find different ways of turning these familiar figures into something new. After discovering some diamonds and some duds, I began to collect a menagerie of characters for my AR amusement park. Each is inspired by a park ride or game and they each contain a playful secret. The entire piece has been designed for interactive exploration. I hope to pique people’s curiosity and encourage them to play. 
Can you guess which ride/game inspired each of these early character explorations?
Answers: (1) Pendulum Ride (2) Pinball (3) Ring Toss & Target Shooting (4) Skeeball (5) Swing Ride
