The Mixed Reality Work “Magical Forest” using Generative AI was Successfully Exhibited in Japan in 2023

Selected into Niantic Innovation Labs Program

The Niantic Innovation Labs Program aims to leverage 8th Wall to design and create #WebAR content that is compatible with mobile phones, as well as #VR / #MR headsets, within a span of approximately 10 weeks.

The result of this program was “Magical Forest”, where you can experience a #MixedReality world full of fantasy. This MR creation is compatible with mobile devices and Meta #Quest3, so you can easily experience #AR on your web browser.

About Magical Forest

Players will play with a dwarf character “Kobbito” who lives in the magic book to complete the task of searching for insects that escaped from the magic book in the “Magical Forest” that appears in the real world. In the magical forest, mysterious plants will grow wherever Kobbito walks, and spell cards will appear allowing players to use magical powers. Players enter the fantasy world through AR in their daily life environment.

In this “Magical Forest” project, we used #AI tools to conduct project production on an experimental basis, from planning to design to materials. First, we brainstormed through chatting with #ChatGPT and finalized the plan. We then used a popular text-to-image generative AI tool called #Midjourney to assist in creating the material from a designer’s perspective. Finally, we created the narration using the AI voice generator called #ElevenLabs.
