My Older XR Projects (from the recent 2-6 years)

Back then, I used After Effects for AR concepts and always shared from my experience

XR-OS: Few concepts I made in the past 5 years (AE, Unity, ARCore)

XR-OS: Jogging and watching videos with AR glasses (Concept)


XR-OS For students – Use OCR in AR to mark, print, and remember anything

And then, I hacked my Quest VR to do more!

As a creative & tech savvy person, I can’t accept Hardware & Software limitations.
