Our inspiration was to build modern application with use of virtual and augmented reality.
What it does
It's an application for support tourism in many ways. It can by used by tourists to show beautiful regions to other people. It can be used by tourism businesses to show with more expression what they have to offer.
How we built it
We used Unity game engine and Vuforia framework to build augmented and virtual reality mobile application for phone with google cardboards. For managing content we prepared ASP.NET MVC5 web application, and also microservice for accessing photos from application in a form of an API.
Challenges we ran into
Dealing with multiple contexts of AR and VR was quite a challenge for us, especially after night without sleep. We also accomplished goals of web application parts with some troubles with zipping files to microservice, getting "Create photo" form to proper work and and keeping us out of mistakes.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We end our tasks before deadline in good mood. Application what we have done impressed other people on the marathon, and also other contestants(and our competitors :) ) with was really awarding for us.
What we learned
We learned how important is team work and listening each others ideas and points of views. We could use our communications skills and ability to solve problems in short period of time. It was great lesson of working with pressure of deadline, keeping own working peace and keeping focused after hours of work. It is kind of experience what will stay with us in our future careers.
What's next for SmartTourismVR
Rest of the world.
