-Travel sites feel more like a Wikipedia about the location & regular videos aren't engaging enough.
PC touch screen laptops/tablets/mobile allow people more ability to scroll, tap & interact with their media
Seeing niche technology used at a level that is rare and being able to access it because of our global experts network in the technology community. This is why showcasing is important because those who see the early benefits can become experts with close mentorship
What it does:
- incorporates MR (mixed reality), VR (virtual reality), & 360 videos that are more engaging than regular videos.

How we built it:
Challenges we ran into: Utilizing Microsoft Azure. View Pr API access. Front end design through wordpress and bootstrap. Timing of filming. AR experience.
Front end (nicole)- choosing the wrong template and needing to override the css and not doing so fully because to do so is not worth it versus choosing another better template.. Not planning the domain in time and dealing with the configuration period the website locks you into, disallowing plugins on non customized domains. Using a platform that stubborn-ness lead to not pivoting early enough.
Accomplishments that we're proud of: Conception and collaboration.
What we learned: That we came up with an idea with technology that we were familiar with because of mutual friends and we should be more realistic. Engage mentors more. Over enthusiasm is good for morale but also only goes so far.
Nicole: study the website creator software thouroughly. have a hackathon domain that can be reused and don't worry about brand name so plugins can be used.
