Passage to the Stars

OBJECTIVE

This project is to create a new digital product to create a case study. The topic is unrestricted. The case study has to contain a mission statement, vision statement, personas, features introduction, product goal, A/B testing, user testing, and of course, the app showcase and introduction. 

APPROACH

There are many people who want to learn about the unknown universe. The universe has been a huge topic in human history, however, there is no good source for teachers or parents to show to students or children. There is even no app that allows children to learn or view that information in an easy and immersive way. The entire visual system is inspired by eclipse. Learning in a way should be immersive.
