A DESIGN FICTION FRAMEWORK

What is [fiction]XR?

[fiction]XR framework is integrated in a web-based platform called AllegoryXR. The framework provides tools for designers to envision and create future scenarios within architectural spaces. It combines storytelling with technology, allowing users to immerse themselves in the environments they create. The platform supports AR and VR experiences, making your designs more interactive and engaging.

Beyond the screen: A glimpse into the future of UX

Imagine a world where technology isnโ€™t just an observer of your reality, but an active participant. Picture yourself using Appleโ€™s โ€˜Vision Proโ€™, a monument of innovation that takes an unprecedented leap into the future of spatial computing. Instead of merely observing the digital world, weโ€™re living in it, interacting with it, and shaping it.

Build Believable Mixed Reality Experiences

When virtual objects move or interact in a way that feels unnatural, this breaks the sense of realness by creating a visual โ€œhiccupโ€ that sticks out and disrupts the user experience. With MR apps, the seamless and physically accurate blending of virtual and physical objects is paramount for preventing these types of user experience breaks.
