Abstract:

The hustle and bustle of cities are boosting people's mental health problems. Many people lack a reliable method for altering their mental state and lowering anxiety and depression. Using entertainment as a distraction might be a good idea, like reading and watching movies. However, the majority of the storytelling is not sufficiently engrossing in traditional 2D experiences such as phones and television are insufficiently immersive. My thesis project combines Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality to produce a 360-degree VR animation of a dreaming tour as well as an Augmented Reality detective board with slide images and animation. This project makes people travel into a fictional realm by using fantasy as escapism. They may be able to escape reality and relax by walking around a wonderful atmosphere in VR video. I am working on a 360 Virtual Reality video and an Augmented Reality interactive board, which is divided into two parts: the first is an Augmented reality storytelling detective board, which will tell the story of a man who created the fantasy land. The audience may learn about the project's background story through pictures and 2D animation; the second portion delves into the 3D virtual reality animation, which immerses viewers in a fantasy world. It depicts dreamy scenes in order to help viewers de-stress and dream while awake.
