Risk Assessment Simulator

A virtual reality simulation developed to measure the perception of risk for workers in the mining industry in their daily workspaces, including lifting operations, work at height, electrical and mechanical blockage, maintenance services, and driving. The simulator is currently being used in an institute in Chile to evaluate over 120 participants daily. I acted as the sole developer alongside an amazing 3D designer.

I also worked on a mobile AR version of this project initially developed in Unity for desktop VR, now running on iPads and Android tablets. I also contributed to the development of an optimized WebGL version and ported it to Unreal Engine to get the best quality for a desktop-only version.

Rampex VR Platform

I acted as the sole developer of the virtual reality simulator to train employees' soft skills, with multiple customizable scenarios where the user can speak and show presentations to virtual avatars. These responded to the user's speech and actions with a combination of artificial intelligence and programmed responses. I worked alongside the web developer to connect it via an API to the web platform where the instructors could design these scenarios.

Crane Simulator

I worked with an amazing global team to create a multipurpose crane simulator for the instruction of both operators and doggers in the operation/guidance of 60T mobile cranes.

I programmed hook physics and hooked up the levers or joysticks of the crane to control the crane's movements. I also built 3D models for the environment and did optimization tasks to ensure peak performance.

Elles - Dans L'oeil De Clouzot
A virtual reality experience for an art exposition in Paris in homage to French film director Henri-Georges Clouzot, from the mind of the artist Alexandra Mas.

The experience is a surreal journey through the filmmaker's mind with fragments of his movies and testimonials from the woman who inspired him.

I worked as the only developer and created the experience with the direction and materials provided by the artist.

Fryer Simulator

Tool for familiarization of new workers in the correct operation of the fryer in a papadum bakery, created as a member of a team.

I coded the player's interactions with the environment (grabbing of objects, teleportation, opening doors, hatches, buttons, clothing), plus I created all the 3D graphics in the project.

Density Measuring Simulator

Virtual reality tool for the teaching and standardization of the correct steps for measuring the density of explosive materials.

This project required many unique features, such as simulating powdery materials filling a bowl whose densities vary over time and permitting it to be leveled by a spatula. I created computed shaders that allowed these properties.

I was the only developer for this simulation alongside a 3D graphics designer for the art.

Precast Mold AR

A multi-platform AR mobile application for the familiarization of students with the process and functions of a precast mold. Allowing the user to see in real-time and from any angle they desire the different steps that go in the creation of concrete pieces from the molds.

I worked on the programming of the AR functionality together with the step manager and associated 3D models. Using Unity + AR Foundation leveraging ARCore and ARKit libraries.

Party Lab 360

Worked on a collection of AR experiences for custom Unity apps using a variety of SDKs including Vuforia, EasyAR and AR Foundation, Instagram filters using Spark AR Studio for multiple use cases, for aiding the sales of party related products. My tasks involved the design and programming of animated face masks, 3D animated characters, and stories, particle effects, custom shaders for visual effects, AR portals, geo-located experiences, and many more.

Mobile Apps for Training and Capacitation Institute

The project involved the creation of a series of native android apps developed using Kotlin to facilitate the tasks of the institute's personal and explore technologies such as AR in the teaching of concepts to the students. These apps involved.
- An AR electrical manual that teaches the concepts of electricity using different multimedia formats including augmented reality, developed using Unity as a submodule.
- A tool for the heads of each specialty to manage teachers, classes, and students efficiently on their phones.
