User research, art direction, interaction design and technical development of VR experience of Quantum Computer experience with Universal Quantum
Fusebox Brighton are working in collaboration with Sussex University Quantum Ion Technology group (Universal Quantum) to develop a creative VR experience featuring the prototype Quantum computer being developed by the group. I worked with Andy Baker (developer) and Alan Jackson (sound design) to design and develop the experience which was available for tethered headsets in 2019. We worked together with Sebastian and the team at Sussex over a mini hack event and then later for 3 days of development.
The models seen in this video are the actual fbx files taken from the team’s prototype and scaled so that the entangled atoms that shuffled across the chips were the size of houses relative to the viewing position in a glass elevator up in the air.
We’re busy at the National Quantum Technologies Showcase in London today with our #VR demo of the trapped ion #quantum computer in collaboration with @PhysicsAtSussex @SPQRsussex it’s going down well! #qtshowcase19 @FuseBoxBtn @AlanMJackson @andybak pic.twitter.com/MP0nMcv8qk
