Saw the idea from an online tutorial and we reedited it and add interesting effects.
What it does
Use QR code to direct the little copter. When it passes the home base, there would be firework to welcome it!
How we built it
Build the model with unity and capture the QR code with the API vuforia
Challenges we ran into
Why the collision cannot be detected? What's the correct code to trigger effects? How to operate unity? It's full of challenges...
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We used some math method to make the copter slightly leaning to the direction it's turning to. We made it a smoothly running IOS app. We can actually control the copter and trigger the effect as we expect.
What we learned
What's next for ARCopter
More operations, like firing bullets may be added to the copter. Other missions could also be added, such as getting energy block or others.
