With COVID-19, many people's holidays have been cancelled. This app allows people to not only go to a holiday elsewhere in the world; it lets them visit places like Mars and learn new things!
What it does
The app will be able to change your room to appear like a different planet. It will crunch image data from NASA API and will start off as a web app. You can go to the url and view the Mar AR model.
How I built it
I used echoAR. The Mars model is integrated into a website. To get images to use for the Mars model, I used NASA API.
Challenges I ran into
It was my first time using echoAR, and, as that was the main tool I used, it was difficult for me to learn and use echoAR.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I'm glad that I finally got the models to load and display!
What I learned
I learned how to use echoAR and I used NASA API for the second time and the Mars Rover data for the first time!
What's next for AR Space
We hope to expand the locations that we can visit and add more educational features. I want it to be able to show more than just Mars: I want to add models for different places on Earth and other planets as well.
