To help debut Leia’s brand new holographic screen technology, we created a material-based art experience taking advantage of motion and depth.
Sculpting on Screen
As part of the Red Hydrogen One phone release, we were challenged to create a first-of-its-kind app leveraging Leia screen technology.
Designing for new technology often introduces new challenges; without pre-existing expectations, it’s important to introduce and guide users through new modes of interaction without losing their attention or making them feel overwhelmed. In order to give users a place to explore what the holographic display could do, we created a drawing app which allows the user to simulate unique materials like clay, which typically require the ability to edit in both positive and negative depth.
“As our screen time has become such an integral part of our lives, it’s an exciting challenge to design for a brand new screen that offers such depth and dimension. Leia has the potential to become a seamless extension of our familiar reality.“
A Visual Shift in Digital Experience
The Clay app was designed to house a variety of different texture experiments that could grow over time, to showcase and inspire future developers. Through these experiments, both developers and users could become accustomed to interaction and control in a new design paradigm.
Users of the app were invited to share their drawings using a proprietary format which would allow other users to send and receive media in a holographic format.
