This is a collection of projects that don’t quite fit into typical portfolio projects, but show explorations of mini-projects which were made just for fun.

Exploring Photogammetry

Play for Digital Design

In this mini-exploration, I became fascinated with how modern maps can create models and texture maps through aerial footage. To understand a part of the process, I made photographs of a subject in over a 100 shots to understand which photos would be useful when taken to Meshroom. Once I was able to extract a 3D model and texture map from Meshroom, I imported it into 3DSMax and began cleaning the polygons to produce a recognizeable image.

“Live Box”

In this mini-group project, we created a “Live Box” that lights up when an upcoming Teams meeting is starting. This semi-analog solution is connected to your Google calender, giving you a gentle nudge to come back to your computer for the meeting. The box is prototyped with 3D printed text, foam board and a bright pink LED strip. See the short video we made for it here.

Snapchat Filter

In this playful sprint-style week, I modelled a Snapchat filter using 3DSMax. I experimented with materials that would convey a futuristic feeling, then brought it to Lens Studio to rig it to recognize faces.

“Delete Ruben”

In this Speculative Futures assignment, my colleague and I concepted a “good but bad” platform. PED is an application that monitors your health, friends and life to make sure you are always on track. PED also suggests when you should “delete” your friends, because of their falling social status. This project is to question to what extent we let technology influence our decisions.
