Eli wanting a simple and intuitive way to view flights his parents were on.
What it does
So far, we are able to view a model of the earth, rotate it, and scale it up or down to act as a zoom.
How we built it
We acquired a computer with the needed GPU and USB3.0 ports then used Unity and C# to create the Earth Model and user control
Challenges we ran into
The first two computers we tried did not work and attempting to wrap a 2D coordinate plane to a 3D sphere.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We have a working model of the control part of the program.
What we learned
Manage our time better and think more ahead about the required components.
What's next for VR Air Tracker Earth
Hopefully we can continue expanding it and make it work in the future.
