This is a new genre of social media in VR world.


For Chinese culture, this is a time that we can come together, love one another, and heal ourselves. Also, lanterns are loaded up with people’s dreams, reflection on our lives, and peace. People used to write phrases, words, resolutions on the lanterns to convey their thoughts, but what if we can look into the lantern and see the story of different people?

For our final project we are going to create a fantasy world full of sky lanterns, and players can write down their wishes on the lantern and fly the lantern by themselves.Meanwhile, players can also interact with other lanterns to look into other people’s stories.
