Gravity Sketch
IDE at RCA, Work / March 29, 2014

From October to December I was able to work with three of my closest classmates on our group project Gravity. We haven’t been able to talk about it too much as we came across a great innovation in the way we can create 3D content. however we have successfully filed a patent and now can disclose our work to the world!

The project started with a strong belief: the tools that are commonly used for drawing, designing and making in 3D have a heavy influence on the output of the initial idea the creator set out to bring to life.

Designers, architects, sculptors and other creative use a variety of different techniques and tools to breath life into their ideas and transform a concept into a physical object. In the early stages of this process, many creatives rely on an pen and paper to create a series of two dimensional interpretations of their three dimensional ideas. When it came to developing these 2D representations into 3D, the digital tools we use today often have a noticeable weight on the design and end result.

Gravity is tool composed of a pen and pad specifically designed for sketching in an augmented environment accompanied by augmented reality glasses. Free from any screen, Gravity allows you to focus on developing your ideas in an intuitive way.

As you start to draw, objects take shape in front of you. Through the landing pad controls, you can adjust the plane in which you sketch, giving volume to your creation. Gravity reinvents how you and your collaborators visualize and contribute to each other’s ideas. Gravity is a simple and engaging tool that will shape a new wave of 3D creation.
