I really wanted to do a project in Virtual Reality, and I was happy that I got the chance to borrow Google Daydream for the hackathon to make a Virtual Reality experience. I also deeply care about the pressing issue of deforestation around the globe. I wanted to give others a taste of how I felt when I saw a field of chopped trees in the field when I was younger.

What it does

DeforestationVR gives you a glimpse into how a forest starts to look after many trees are chopped down.

How we built it

We used Unity and Google's Daydream VR API.

Challenges we ran into

Google Daydream is a relatively new technology without many tutorials. Figuring out how to set it up for the first time was daunting.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud of being able to figure out how to use Daydream and set up the pointer.

What we learned

We learned that VR is a cool technology and we would like to work with it in the future.

What's next for DeforestationVR

I hope to spread more awareness about the state of forests and present this at a National Park one day.
