Seeing the Unseeable: Exploring the Physical World through Augmented Reality
By: Page Waldo '20
Advising Faculty: William Tarimo
"Seeing the Unseeable" uses augmented reality technology and app design to help people visualize the physical phenomenon around them in their daily lives.
I love understanding how the world around me works. This desire to understand the physical world is what led me to study physics. There is such brilliance in the items we use in our everyday lives such as cars, microwaves, telephones, and cameras. Similarly, there are physical nuances in our human experiences, like watching the sunset, feeling the breeze, or playing catch. Through my education, career, and hobbies I hope to pursue a deeper understanding of how physics constantly surrounds me, and I hope to always maintain my unwavering curiosity about the world.
My senior integrative project has allowed me to continue exploring the physics I encounter on a daily basis, while also sharing it with others. Many people think physics is boring, difficult, or impossible for them to understand. My project uses augmented reality to help people visualize the forces, field, currents, and other physical phenomena around them. I hope this visual and interactive platform will make physics fun and accessible for everyone!
