We wanted to make visually appealing and interactive, for example, displaying the lyrics of a song in a unique way in order to make it more captivating. (And we just wanted to make something cool)
What it does
It has a sea of letters, and once the computer/phone hears a voice, from the sea of letters words rise up. These words happen to be what the voice is saying. The sea has properties of a sea. This includes waves that increase with volume. Yes, very sea-like. In addition to all this, it has a 360 view. You can move your phone/computer in order to look around you. It works on the google cardboard as well, making it VR friendly. This runs completely in a browser, ensuring maximum cross device compatibility.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
As mentioned above, in order to make it so that it flows smoothly without lagging on every device, we had to make some changes for the phone that we did not expect to have to do at the beginning. We also ran into countless bugs during the development process, most of which we were able to squash.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
