We were sick and tired of learning in two dimensions. We were so restricted by the bounds of pen and paper. We wanted to enhance our education; to immerse ourselves in our learning.
What it does
The Unity application allows the Myo to interface with an Oculus Rift to present the student with a 3-d, immersive environment that they can control with their hands.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Compatibility issues with the Oculus Rift and Windows delayed us in production of TruViu. In addition, the Myo was slow to sync, but we were able to troubleshoot.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We created a solar system model on Unity that focused on the asteroid belt. We were also able to transform hand gestures with the Myo into Unity commands. We also designed our own insignia/logo. Finally, we were able to overcome the compatibility issues with the Oculus.
What we learned
What's next for TruViu - Taking Education to the Next Dimension
We want to implement TruViu for other subjects too, such as making anatomy models or mimicking dissections. We feel that education as a whole could benefit from an extra dimension.
