Interactive Video Wall at Canisius College
A mobile webapp allows a user to control a video wall in a public setting. The idea to engage users through a mobile device stemmed out of the observation of people in the area where the video wall is positioned. It is large waiting room with comfortable chairs where students wait their turn to enter a classroom and who usually use their phones in a moment of down time between the classes. The setting presented an opportunity to engage users with a video wall controller that they could access in a mobile browser. Project collaboration: Alexa Rivera and Kathleen Lawver.

Old Fort Niagara VR Simulation
Old Fort Niagara is a fortification originally built to protect France’s territory in North America. It’s located in near Youngstown in New York State on the eastern bank of the Niagara River and Lake Ontario. The idea behind the project was to construct multiple versions of the fort in Virtual Reality from different time periods and allow the viewer to “time travel” and experience changes made to the fort as they happened during different occupations of the area: French, British and American. Collaboration: Janelle Harb, Alexander Maue and Edward Reyes. Click here to view the video presentation of the project created by my students.
