Augmented Reality (AR): Simulation Training

Pally is a HoloLens (headset) simulation app designed to help individuals with special needs, such as autism, advance social communication and interaction.

<My Role>

In a cross-functional team of 4, I product/project managed the full product development cycle of this augmented reality (AR) simulation app from research, design, prototyping, software development, and testing.

<Project Background and Goals>

In 2019, I won the Verizon 5G EdTech Challenge, where I received funding to design/develop a HoloLens simulation app to help students with special needs practice social interaction in an AR environment. I had the privilege of developing and testing my product on Verizon's 5G network before it was publicly available.
