Odyssey VR UI

“mental meandering and personal experimentation are sources of power, and head starts are overrated” – David Epstein

Task

A Diegetic Hand UI Virtual Reality prototype considering access to information in real time during gameplay.

  • Discipline

    Virtual Reality, Game Design

  • Skills

    Adobe XD, Unity

  • Platform

    Oculus Quest 2

Hypothesis

Prototype: hand tracked UI interaction

Odyssey 1.0 is a UI prototype I built to explore the thought of a massive open world game in virtual reality and how a user would access game wide information without pausing the game to make amends, check inventory or even find out what to do on a particular quest.

Ideation & implementation

I figured that the user would have a HUD anyhow so an interactive overlay would be the best route to access info. Secondly the user would need to access the HUD overlay in a non intrusive way so I decided to add in a simple hand UI that’s accessed by pressing a button around the lower hand / wrist area. This will allow the user to still interact with items in the world as normal without accidently hitting the UI interaction buttons and also removes the need for a button press on a controller.

I love to collaborate with other designers on any manner of projects especially if it’s going to be difficult! Aside from Graphic Design I’m interested in AR/VR projects as well as motion graphics & 3D for film.
