We wanted to enter new territories within VR and HCI. The Leap Motion was a perfect companion for the Oculus Rift headset.
What it does
A simple 3D - VR experience that guides the player through an island, where they must collect supplies to construct shelter.
How we built it
Using an Oculus CV1 kit, UE4 and Leap Motion.
Challenges we ran into
Numerous setbacks when using the Leap Motion API, outdated documentation, and engine issues.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud of the fact that we were able to put together a complete experience in such a short time span!
What we learned
VR Development, LEAP Motion, some useful UE4 tips and tricks, and how to effectively develop and plan for a short time sprint.
