We all wanted to learn more about VR technology and HackNJIT was the perfect opportunity. We also have a passion for helping kids so we figured we can combine both interests and make an amazing application.
What it does
We made a story based learning experience which revolves around children answering questions from different characters. Answering the questions correctly would further the story line.
How I built it
We used multiple different technologies and integrated it together under Unity. We used Oculus Rift, Leap Motion, blender, sketchup, and PlayMaker.
Challenges I ran into
Integrating different technologies was our biggest challenge. Using leap motion also provided a challenge due to its low accuracy detecting motion.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We successfully overcame our challenges of integration. While also learning about VR technology for the first time for 3 of our 4 members.
What I learned
I learned how to story board a project for Unity as well as 3d modelling.
What's next for Project Reach
We hope to add different types of educational material to our project. Also add different environments for our levels.
