IBM Quantum Design Jam

The Concept

Encrypted Metaverse Identity

Our digital identity is usually lack of connection to the physical identity, yet our physical identity information (biometrics) could be vulnerable on the Internet.

We propose that Quantum Cryptography has the power to replace modern encryption and safeguard future sensitive data as we enter Web3.

Our approach is to encrypt our biometrics using both quantum cryptography and visual representation, allowing us to extend our one-of-a-kind identity in the metaverse.

Quantum Jam Design Brief

The Design Jam was hosted by The New School Innovation Center in partnership with the IBM Skills Academy and IBM Quantum team.

The Quantum Design Jam was the first of its kind to bring together students and faculty from The Parsons School of Design and across The New School with IBM Quantum experts.

The Design Jam focused on two main themes: Art & Design, and Music and explore the intersection between the creative arts and quantum physics.

Data encryption & Visual Inspiration

We studied quantum cryptography, key distribution, and quantum circuit from the Qiskit Textbook. Then, use python to generate a shared security key. Next, used the key to encrypt our biometric data, which is a set of binary data of a fingerprint.

The encoded data became the material to build the patterns for garments. For visual reference, we are inspired by Rei Kawakubo and Iris Van Herpen’s work. We admire the free-form and unconventional designs that we believe could empower us to be whoever we want. And that is what we want to bring to the metaverse.

Future Steps

We are amazed by how Quantum theory can expand digital fashion and digital self-identity to another level.

After the jam, we want to figure out how to run Qiskit and generate data inside TouchDesigner. Thus, we can get data immediately to explore more potential for different patterns.

We want to explore how we can give the users authority to customize their digital fashion on an online platform using their identity data.
