What it does
It is a hands-free web application that shows you can interactive globe where you can search for different places using your voice. Click interactions are enables through eye tracking backend.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Eye tracking can be unstable and we had to find a happy medium between precision and ease of use. We also had to figure out how to make different APIs compatible in a single application.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We have a voice search implemented and have a listing of UNESCO World Heritage sites to provide cultural enrichment.
What we learned
We learned about the esri and xLabs apis and the challenges of building interactive web apps.
What's next for HackNC
We want to rotate the globe with our eyes, increase tracking precision, and enable make our interface as intuitive as possible
