The environmental issues can only be solved if everyone of us takes action, therefore our goal was to come up with a project that would raise awareness of the environmental issues that we're facing.

The feedback statement to the team presented by René Lansink in the feedback discussion, last day plenary:
Project 3 Particle
This project focused on using augmented reality to visualize ‘cultural heritage’ in the environment. The project group as a start used a great deal of their time to discuss and redefine their concept of ‘heritage’. Being an evidence or trace of the past, the concept of heritage can refer to ‘hidden’ artifacts in our natural environment. Traces from the past we normally cannot see, but which can be made visible by the use of new technology…. The end of this conceptual exercise was to focus on environmental pollution (air, water, soil), hence the project title ‘Particle’.
In a very clear and visually convincing worked out user scenario the use of augmented reality to visualize ‘invisible’ pollution in a urban and more natural environment was worked out. The object of the application was to raise awareness of the status of the ‘heritage’ i.e. ‘pollution’ in the environment.
The very strong aspect of this project was that they focused on a specific real life problem (pollution) using the right technological concept, i.e. augmented reality & holographic projection to make things visible you normally cannot see!
Summary of comments by other lecturers
Totally new concept. They had to think about the initial idea again to redefine the concept of heritage, that made very clear the whole design. The concept is very strong. It's global but you made it local and it llok really stron, visualizations were very clear and helped to understand the concept. The research on data gave them the idea of visualizing data. Clarity, focus and good taste for design also having the future partners clear was good. The bad thing was the length of the presentation. It's the project that EU would like most.
