Many coral reserves provide a real life interactive experience with coral. As many people are unable to experience this or are unable to live near these locations, we thought we would replicate this experience virtually. Allowing people to interact with coral with this website will foster a greater connection and greater action.
What it does
We created a blog section in which people can join a community that encourages friendly practices to save coral. This tight knit community will not only allow people to share their coral friendly actions, but also allow the communities who are most affected by coral, i.e. people who rely on coral's natural seawall and fishing, to share how the state of coral affects them. Along with that we made VR "game" for people to explore and clean up the ocean!
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
After finishing our project, we are proud to get Qoom (A-Frame specifically) working as it was our group's first time touching these tools. Getting the parallax scrolling to work, was a great success as it doesn't look weird compared how we first started it!
What we learned
We never learned A-Frame before nor was parallax scrolling. We had to Google up Stack Overflow and YouTube videos to help us. We are glad we pull through as also learned that taking breaks and coming back gives us the best ideas!
What's next for Salvare Oceanum
Salvare Oceanum will try to host this website in its own domain (No Qoom nor Glitch)! We will also try making it more public! Expand our VR world!! And also using Tableau Public to convince people to save the world!
