Scan your id to get your alternate identity!

This project was made using p5.js, the randomuser API and a barcode scanner. We envision this project as a way for people to treat their state issued ids as a portal to an alternate, digital self!

We also imagined that, because each id is mapped to one and only one other alternate self, the user might have to take care of this alternate self by scanning other items, and if they fail to take care of it properly, the alternate self will die. Furthermore, this self cannot be brought back to life because most people only have one state-issued id.
