Bee Guide

The Bee Guide is a virtual buddy in “Eden”. He will show the user around and provide guidance throughout the experience.

  • Guide the user initially to map out the environment
  • Prompt user what to do during initial induction
  • Follows user around and provide real time help when needed
  • Give user subtle indication around point of interests

 

Sound

  • We used a mix of voice, natural and generated sound effects to enhance to our MR project.
  • All sound is spacial to give the virtually generated images presence.
  • We used natural sounds to simulate different interactions such as rain
  • For interactions of sunlight generated sounds were employed.
  • Some sound bites are used to guide the user’s attention to aspects of the virtual world.
  • An ambient track is also present to set the mood of the experience.
