This is the first in a series of projects I will be doing in which I’ll be reimagining cool technologies from anime and cartoons as real-world applications. In this case, I’ll be redesigning the Dragon Radar from the Dragon Ball series to be a mobile application.

Yes, I’m a geek.

I know. It’s okay.

If you aren’t accustomed with Dragon Ball, it’s a manga-turned-anime series that follows the adventures of the protagonist, Son Goku, through his entire life as he trains in aggressive arts, makes new friends, and fights assorted enemies. Along his journey, he meets a girl named Bulma, who is on a quest to find seven mystical orbs known as the Dragon Balls. When all these orbs are collected, they summon Shenron, a dragon that can grant any wish a person desires. Goku decides to go with Bulma on her quest to find the Dragon Balls and that’s where the adventures begin.
