Wouldn't it be cool to control IoT devices from your game or an interactive virtual 3D model of your home?
Imagine if you're playing a scary game and your connected thermostat can instantly blast the AC mode when a poltergeist is haunting your scene... or if the game's global weather system could be controlled by real world sunlight from a light meter on your plant!
What it does
We created an extension/plugin for any Unity app to connect to AWS and the (currently) desktop-only WebGL live demo is available at the link below. (Wait for it to load)
How we built it
@yosun built the clientside using her Unity framework RealityScript (wrapped into her gyroFIRE platform for the web) utilizing 3D art models from the asset store
@ratub who has been lead engineer @ Oracle for many years (and now looking at her next opportunity) built the serverside AWS integration
What's next for Augmented Reality In-Game Interfaces for IoT
We hope to clean up our code to share our SDK with the community!
