It's incredible how much information has become available to us within the past few decades. For centuries, our methods of content organization have been limited to the page -- the lined paper and bound notebooks.
Sometimes, thinkers and innovators have prefer whiteboards as flexible means to organize their insights. The free of a whiteboard remaps bullet-lists into stimulating visual diagrams that help us draw connections.
We want to take the next step.
Constellation is a 3D mind-map. You take notes with simple speech and organize them with intuitive gestures. For the first time, you have the ability to draw connections as you interact with ideas literally floating around you.
How it works
Simply speak, and your ideas will come to life around you. As you take notes, Constellation will give help guide your mind-mapping with suggestions from our NLP engine.
Manipulate and group your ideas by grabbing them in 3D space.
Share your ideas with simple gestures.
Challenges I ran into
- Interfacing all the hardware was a challenge, especially as they needed to work closely together
- Creating new inputs (speech) for content delivery
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We built an awesome interface that resulted from an idea that we think will truly benefit all people who like to think.
What I learned
- First time with VR!
- How to use a 3D game engine (vectors, space, etc.)
- NLP relevancy filter
What's next for Constellation
We already ditched the keyboard. We're ditching speech next -- Mind-based input. ;)
