Execution

In order for this to work correctly, I need a way to access photo image data, time stamps, and maybe other meta data to add later. Facebook’s graph API was a no brainer.

Response

So far this has been the most encouraging project to date. I had a few friends come over to try it and both explored inside of it for sometime. I can think of many ways to improve this thing and many different directions it can go and that’s kind of the point. The way we flip through our past is pretty well worn and established on FB and online. VR offers a new territory to explore and potentially, a better way to reflect.
