Thought this was pretty neat but had no idea what it was for. So I asked the creator, Michael Ko, to break it down for me.
The assignment was to create a diorama of any kind. It started out as a still but I thought animating miniatures was pretty cool so i ended up building a whole block. And i saw an article about “augmented reality”. So for fun i put my buildings on top of an iphone. Possible application in near future.
