An online platform for children - Bachelor project 2013


Children hospitalized because of cancer experience strong isolation during the treatment to avoid bacteria. I asked myself how I could help them stay in contact with the outside world. How could they, for a while, escape the sanitized environment of the hospital?

It's why I came up with an immersive universe in which they can identify themselves to an avatar. For the future, I imagine creating several univers thematics (home screen) for them to choose from and make them evolve with time of the day and weather. So each time they would have a different experience of the environment that would reflect what's happening in the real world.

Timeframe: 6 months
Phase 1: Research & problem definition
