Simply put, we wanted to work on a project of the future. We wanted to provide an immersive experience of controlling a maps interface that we would normally only see in science-fiction movies.
How it works
Challenges we ran into
Calibrating the hand gestures to be accurate and distinguishable enough to fluidly control the Google Maps.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
What's next for Map Motion
We believe that we only scratched the surface of what Map Motion is capable of, as it is only a glimpse of the future of the user interface of popular maps frameworks of not only Google but Bing and Apple maps as well. In the future, we hope to integrate with Oculus Rift and provide an even more immersive google maps experience.
