Projects from the Johnson Cornell Tech MBA


AccuWeather AR

Weather is a beautiful 3D phenomenon but we consume it in 2D. AccuWeather Augmented Reality (AR) allows you to see the weather forecast unfold before your eyes, creating a weather clip. For AccuWeather, this unlocks a social media opportunity, driving engagement and retention to their platform. When AR glasses become widespread, we see this as a new mode for consuming the weather forecast. For the project’s github and slides click here.


Airpark

Airpark is the end of parking woes. It is a 3-sided marketplace that allows car-owners to order on-demand valet and rent out their unused parking spaces. The result is a greater supply of cheap parking, leading to affordable valet services for everyone.

Awarded 2nd place, Cornell-Tsinghua Hackathon.


Here

Here is an Augmented Reality application for people to discover hidden layers of information in the city. With Here, users can leave notes, sounds, or virtual graffiti attached to any object in the environment. Explorers roaming the city can pick up these notes to travel back in time and get the authentic feel of the city.


Samsung

Samsung asked us - “How might we create new devices or physical interfaces to connect people over long distances?”. The solution is an IoT device, paired with a sister-device anywhere in the world. Touching one of the devices triggers a reaction in the other, allowing users to create their own language for long-distance communication.
