Air Guardians / Augmented Reality Game Application

Air Guardians
Air Guardians

Air Guardians is a micro-dust design solution for socially disadvantaged class. Air pollution, more specifically ‘fine dust’ is an ever-growing problem in South Korea. This air is known to contain invisible nano particles which can penetrate deep into the respiratory system and trigger a variety of illness. The lungs of children are particularly susceptible. However, teachers and parents reported problems of enlightening their children as it is a difficult concept for kids to understand.
AIR GUARDIANS is an AR multi-player game that children can safely play indoors, and help them understand the concept of air pollution and how to wear masks.
