Inspiration - 3D TETRIS!!
Imagine you are a pirate who dug up a hole in the ground to bury your tightly sealed treasure chests with different proportions, assuming that everything can fit in the hole. The thing is, you are also on the run from the authorities and have no time to figure out the best organization of your treasure chests to fit the hole. Luckily, you own a magical eye patch that let you see the best way to stack everything and it tells you where to put each chests like playing 3D Tetris with an ultimate guide. Congratulations! Because of this, you have successfully kept your treasures safe, and outran the authorities!
Warehouse workers whose responsibility is to place product boxes in the truck are just like the pirate mentioned above. They both have the same problem: given a list of stock product boxes that have their own individual dimensions (length, width, height) and a truck with its own coordinates and dimension as well, what would be the most efficient and fastest way to stack the boxes in the truck in order to take up the least amount of space?
What it does
The magical eye patch represents StackNOverflow, which is a mobile application that uses Augmented Reality technology for the purpose of assisting and aiding warehouse workers with stacking and organizing a list of product boxes into a truck using an algorithm that was inspired by the NP hard problems; Bin Packing Problem and Box Stacking Problem.
How I built it

Challenges I ran into
Learning how to build an AR application without any experiences. Creating a reasonable and feasible algorithm.
What's next for StackNOverflow
Creating a more optimal algorithm.
