Health Power-Up for an AR Game
This concept was developed to be an object scattered around a playable AR environment, which would mimic a ‘medkit’ power-up found in a traditional video game. The band is elastic and can quickly be slipped on a player’s wrist. There is a space for an RFID chip inside which is read by a wearable computer the player has on, giving the player the corresponding health power-up.
Color & material
Colors were selected for their connotations. Blue is symbolic of health energy, vibrancy, water, and the sky. While white is sterile, blank, and fresh.
Materials like glossy acrylic and ripstop nylon with its microgrid pattern was chosen because of its similarity to materials used in space exploration.
