AR is used for many things nowadays and it is a very important tool in visualisation. This led me to think that if people saw what actually happens when you give something to recycling or how to practice some common health habits in an interactive way then it would drive more people to them.
What it does
An AR application that can be used to spread awareness about common recycling practices and healthy habits that can be easily practiced.
How I built it
The application is built using Unity and the backend for it is build using python. The 3D models are hosted on EchoAR to reduce the app size and for easy and quick delivery to the users mobile. Although right now this is just an idea and I was unable to work on it because of my exams this is something I fully intend to work on in the future.
Challenges I ran into
I had not worked with 3D modelling software before and the application requires a lot of it so I spent most of my time learning Blender and how to work with these 3D models in AR in Unity.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Even thought I was unable to complete the application I was able to work on some 3D models and I couldn't quite polish them to perfection I am proud that I learned something new.
What I learned
I learned the basics of 3D modelling in Blender and some texturing. I learned how to work with these models in AR in unity.
What's next for Practicinator
I'll work on adding some mini-games for the users and try deploying the server and make the application publicly available in the future.
