We are inundated with virtual desktop solutions. However, we noticed that they all share one same problem, they are too resource heavy for simple tasks. We decided to fix this by creating the ARC.
How it works
On a high-level, the system works as the user creates various custom watches and triggers from their desktop. The user can then access this functionality from their phone by making use of the ancillary Android app. By making use of an internet connection, the user can view screenshots and send simple commands.
Challenges I ran into
Throughout the day, we were constantly fighting against the clock, considering the scope and difficulty of the project.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Interfacing android and pc communication via a server
What I learned
What's next for ARC: The Android Remote Controller
We have the potential to add a plugin system for more precise interfacing with other desktop apps. This would mean an even more seamless experience for the user
