As we brainstormed for things that make people laugh, we thought of 5-minute crafts, an Instagram page and Youtube channel that creates unnecessary solutions to problems.

What it does

Our hack is a play off of 5-minute crafts to solve a problem with a nonsensical solution.

How I built it

We created code to allow the user to create their device and designed the actual devices in tinkercad which we uploaded to EchoAR.

Challenges I ran into

One challenge we ran into was sizing in EchoAR. We reduced the size in Tinkercad and configured our cameras on our phone to better display the object.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We are proud that we create a functioning program within 24 hours. We were able to create code that provides a link to another aspect of our project.

What I learned

We learned how to incorporate photos into Java code in order to display the QR codes and our devices.

What's next for 5 Minute Hacks

In the future, we could create more scenarios and objects for the user to explore.
