And since we love puns so much, have another one: LivePongAndProsper.com
We've always been very intrigued with AR technology, and what better way to dip our toes in than turning one of our childhood favorite games into an AR game?
What it does
A real life Pong platform is projected onto a surface of your choice, and you can control the paddle by moving your phone. Aim the ball at the power-ups to get cool stuff.
How we built it
Unity with Vuforia.
Challenges we ran into
We're not very experienced C# programmers, and it's out first time using Vuforia. It was a steep learning curve.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We made a thing!
What we learned
Vuforia library, C# programming, some graphics design. Lots!
What's next for IRL Pong
We would like the control of the paddle to be a bit more sophisticated and potentially allowing you to control the paddle with your hand? We could incorporate the Leap Motion. Build better power-ups?
