When we formed our group we discussed various things and also talked about the difficulties we faced during our time in high school. Turns out all of us found the subject a bit difficult. This was mostly because of not being able to visualize certain concepts. When we asked our close friends about this, we found out that 6 out of 10 people faced the same problem.
What it does
Our app (though in development) will help students visualize the concepts of physics using Augmented Reality and will also help students keep track of their progress. It will also help students with providing flashcards with notes we get with the help of certain university professors.
How we built it
We first had a rough sketch done along with a UI design done in Figma. We used Flutter for the code. For the AR models, we tried using EchoAR. Unfortunately due to the lack of time, we weren't able to finish the app as a whole. But the idea is to use the Flutter based EchoAR SDK and integrating it into the app.
Challenges we ran into
Due to the personal problems of certain teammates we had a lot of people join and leave our team causing us to introduce the project over and over again consuming time. Because of this situation, we only had a week to develop our project.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Considering we had a week to develop this project, the UI was done pretty well along with the code that we could manage in that timeframe.
What we learned
We learned that we need to stick to an initially formed team and that we should manage our time better. We also learned the basics of how to use flutter.
What's next for PhyDimensions
Currently, the app is still in development and we are going to move forward with developing the app. Hopefully, you will be able to see us in the app store soon!
