SUMMER + SEPT // Monthly Progress

Sometimes when you spread yourself too thin, things get attention much less frequently. That isn’t to say I have forgotten my pet project. Here I am, renewed and refreshed with a new test and taking a small break from the site series. It seemed like an easy series to keep up, given that I was matching the pace of the build — it is now complete. So I have some catching up to do.

Apart from hustling and bustling between work, side work, side projects, hobby projects and my pet project, I think what’s been a difficult hill to climb is to break out of the comfort zone of illustrative sketches and reach out to learn the tech side of my project. I still have an invested interest in the idea and the technology, but my skill sets lie elsewhere. Suffice to say, I am no tech wiz and I don’t know the slightest about producing an AR app. I suppose my starting an illustrative test series was my way to get started, but now that I’ve reached double digits, it should be about time to step into the cold water.

Quick read today:

This New AR App is Like Minecraft for Drone Pilots
It’s neat that apps like this are cropping up. I imagine the detail callouts for buildings could be viewed similarly, whether from ground level or up above. In either case it involves the mirage of merging the built environment with the virtual environment.

“But the app isn’t just all fun and games. DroneBase believes that AirCraft can be helpful in visualizing construction projects, particularly when using the blocks with building material textures.”

Expect some more test sketches soon. 🙂

JUL // Monthly Update

This is a rough idea of where I could be heading. A simple app with a camera function that highlights locations where potential details could be. A bit preliminary of an idea but something more real than the little test blocks I’ve been doing.

I’d like to keep developing ideas for what the UI/UX would be like – the ‘flowchart’-like stuff is fascinating to me, but I have very little experience in it. Of course, I won’t be abandoning the Tests. 011 is coming soon…I promise.

Snow still lingers on the earth as steel gets tirelessly erected. We’re almost ready for enclosure.

As this is a learning in progress, I’ve missed a few things from the previous test that I’ve improved upon in this one. Namely the missing column in the lower level to support the steel column!
