When you realised you could complement your art and storytelling with technology, why did you choose to adopt AR and VR specifically?
“When you can transport yourself into a virtual world of your own making or bring your art and stories to life into your reality, it’s hard not to be curious about immersive technologies.
“I’ve been storytelling across a number of mediums from traditional picture book illustrations to motion graphics and animation. Through AR and VR that I’ve been able to take my storytelling processes to the next level, to push the boundaries and fuse these areas together to create some really unique and engaging work.
“The way I see it, AR and VR lets you to break through the convential screen, allowing audiences to interact and becoming an acting part in your stories.”

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
