In current times, when travelling is restricted and unsafe due to the pandemic, we yearn for the exotic outdoor experiences. Some visions to take in the scenic beauty of various tourist spots that are beyond our reach. We feel the urge to travel to various destinations and still have the comfort and safety of our homes. Let our Filter beam you from your Living room to a series of destinations around the world.
What it does
The filter provides you options(labelled spheres) on various stands in the camera view. When you click on any option it ports you to the labelled place, where you can experience the Panoramic view of the tourist spot. To come back to your camera view, tap anywhere on the screen.
How I built it
I built it with Spark AR where there are flat spheres and 3D models where in on taping the sphere would initialize an animation which would take up the camera space creating an illusion of the panoramic view.
Challenges I ran into
Proper scaling and toggling between the visible states of the game objects were a challenge.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
making my idea come to life.
What I learned
I learned a lot about the Spark AR interface and the patches.
What's next for TravelAR
- A range of categorised destinations can be further added.
- The User Interface will have extended features
- A lot of interactive Points of Interest and Infomatics within panorama with minimalistic design.
