How it Was Built
-Magic Leap SDK for Unity and Lumin SDK to build the AR experience, including space scanning, object overlaying for our speech bubbles and ray-casting for human recognition.
-IBM Watson API and Watson's Unity SDK for speech to text recognition, and a custom CNN for gesture / sign language recognition.
-We host CNN on Google Cloud Services and use Restful API to communicate with the server.
-AfterEffect, Illustrator, C4D, and Blender to build custom assets and animation.
