We were inspired to look into the issue of depth perception as we are both teenagers who are learning how to drive. A crucial part of driving involves the ability to judge how far away and how quickly an oncoming vehicle is moving. This ability is called depth perception.
What it does
This website allows people to learn what depth perception is and includes an online test to let people know if their depth perception is off. It also includes a resource page which provides information and resources for how to improve your depth perception.
How we built it
We built this website in repl.it and used the Bootstrap framework to get the styles we wanted. To build our website we used HTML, and CSS.
Challenges we ran into
One of the challenges we ran into was figuring out what project we wanted to make in the first place. We had trouble picking on an idea to build during the hackathon. There were so many endless possibilities and limitations we had that made it difficult for us to decide on a project.
Accomplishments that we’re proud of
We are proud of the design of our website. We spent a lot of time planning how we wanted the website to look and which layout would be most appealing to viewers. We are satisfied with how our website turned out and we expanded a lot of our html and css knowledge while working on this project.
What we learned
On the way, we learned a lot of new things about depth perception that we didn’t know coming into the project. For example, more than half the population of ages 18-38 suffer from poor depth perception. At first, we didn’t think it was very common because we haven’t met anyone with poor depth perception, but after researching we realized that a lot of people suffer from this and it is a really big problem.
What’s next for Depthed
Next, we want to be able to get more resources available for people who might be suffering from poor depth perception. We also want to work with medical professionals who can help us gather more information and resources for depth perception.
