We were inspired to make Anchor in hopes to promote positive, healthy mental and physical health. Being in the middle of the pandemic, we were also inspired to add virtual collaborative features to still encourage active living but in the safety of our homes.
What it does
Anchor is a personal workout app that aims to boost your mental and physical health through yoga, workouts, stretch, and dance! Users can do these on their own or with others. It makes everyday, mundane activities more fun and interactive!
How we built it
We primarily used AdobeXD and experimented with EchoAR
Challenges we ran into
Artificial intelligence! It was our first time trying virtual/augmented reality with EchoAR so we had difficulties trying to incorporate it into our final product.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Learning new software and stepping out of our comfort zone!
What we learned
It was also our first time trying AdobeXD and EchoAR! We learned a lot about rendering and artificial intelligence. Definitely a great experience and lots of room for improvement in the future.
What's next for Anchor
We hope to fine-tune our artificial intelligence to create a better user experience, hopefully with EchoAR. This will help teach correct form and prevent injuries by letting the user see the yoga poses from all different angles as they could see a 360 video using augmented reality. We also hope to expand our platform and start a web application, as well as additional customizable features such as calorie trackers and fitness goal settings.
