Inspiration

Celebrity Deathmatch, and this video.

What it does

It's Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, floating in a void. FOREVER. (We also have a web crawler that creates a livestream of tweets and pushes it to the console while you're on the page. We originally wanted it to display the tweets on screen)

How we built it

We used A-Frame VR for the front end, with AWS hosting. We also used NodeJS and Socket.IO to interact with the twitter streaming API to stream tweets pointed at Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton.

Challenges we ran into

  • none of our objects would show up
  • our objects behaved in unexpected ways
  • a-frame's documentation is horrible
  • couldn't get tweets to show up on HTML canvas, so we console.log'd them.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • actually getting it rendered
  • learning how to do a simple VR app
  • getting AWS set up!!! omg

What we learned

  • experimenting can be fun ;;)
  • also, you need a windows machine to develop for oculus
  • also, running everything in browser is SLOW!!! get something to speed up load times
