PathStories - New Interactive Video Marketing Service
As Founder / Lead Designer / Video and Marketing Designer
Have you ever wanted to change the ending of the movie you watched? Or would you make different choices as a protagonist of the story?
Until now the watcher of Your Videos has been a passive bystander.
As a founder of gamified marketing company Choosera Ltd., I am proud to introduce its new interactive video marketing service PathStories®.
In the interactive videos by PathStories, the watcher can interact with the videos by their choices, which changes the storyline and scenes shown for the watcher. As the watcher of the interactive video can choose in which way the story of the video will continue, the storypaths can alter significantly between different watchers, based on their own interests.
Besides, the watcher can make purchases, subscribe to email lists and utilize many other unique features inside the interactive video, which are not possible with “traditional” linear video content. From interactive ads to interactive job interviews, the usage possibilities of interactive videos are almost limitless!
In addition to interactive videos, PathStories provides interactive 360 tours, which are perfect for demonstrating your business, such as real estate, marine, restaurant or hotel services, so your upcoming your future customers can check you out before coming in?
As a special feature, info spots and actions spots can be added to your virtual 360 tour, giving additional information about your business and supporting the actions of your customer!
This means that you can utilize online reservations, forms, pictures, videos or even direct links to external purchase pages inside the 360 tour environment, created by PathStories.
Watch the video for more information and try interactive videos and 360 tours on www.pathstories.com !

“Virtual reality learning service for practicing presentations in front of a virtually presented audience”
As UX Designer / Game Designer
I was working as a main designer and UX designer in a Presentation Virtualizer software project with our team. The prototype for Presentation Virtualizer was created with Unity for HTC Vive and utilizing Leap Motion.
With the Presentation Virtualizer service, the users can upload their presentations to the system, and practice their presentation skills in virtual reality environment through gaze, gesture and audio inputs.
The service includes a virtual tutor giving user advice about user`s eye contact, remaining time and pace of speech. The service can be used in educational purposes together with a teacher or a presentation trainer, who can control the reactions of a tutor by using keyboard commands, helping the user to focus on specific areas when having a presentation.
The service is effective tool to reduce stress towards presentations, as the user can practice presentations at her/his own pace and relax before presentations in calming virtual environments.
My responsibilities with the project were ideation of the product, designing features, UI and interactions for the prototype, creating user personas and user scenarios for the service and conducting competitor analysis. Furthermore, I conducted user tests and created test tasks for the participants to iterate the design of the system.
