本研究は一人旅の記録体験の拡張を目的としたシステムを開発した。具体的にはバルーンにカメラを装着して三人称視点からユーザを常にビデオ録画や写真記録をできるようにした。カメラの位置はユーザの移動に追尾し、また移動速度に応じてカメラのアングルが変化する部分も特徴である。三人称視点での記録は一人称視点の記録とは異なる振り返り体験が可能である。

PukaPuCam is an application service that utilizes a camera attached to balloons, to capture users’ photo continuously from a third-person view. Then, users can glance through their photos by using PukaPuCam Viewer. PukaPuCam records the interaction between users and their surrounding objects or even with the people they meet. As balloon experiences air resistance, it can change its inclination according to the user’s speed and thus, capture pictures from different direction or angles. This gives rise to interesting and unusual records to be added to the user’s collection. As compare to other similar devices, PukaPuCam uses a common design people are familiarize with – a balloon; making it an interesting application to be used at tourist spots. As balloons are cute, we aim to give users a more enjoyable, delightful experience.
