We created We Are Concerts to benefit both the artist and fan. The ability to connect artists with fans to let artists expand their presence and reach the fans that care the most.
What it does
We Are Concerts is a platform that allows you to view and attend concerts using virtual reality in the comfort of your home. You are able to control your home surround sound system with Amazon Echo using voice commands to control volume levels.
Using the full immersion of virtual reality, surround sound and voice commands you are able to get the concert experience; which can be beneficial if you are disabled, are geographically unable to attend or are sensitive to loud sound.
How we built it
We built We Are Concerts by integrating Oculus Rift, Sonos, Amazon Echo and AWS together for a unique concert experience.
Challenges we ran into
The challenges we ran into ranged from connecting Oculus Rift to a web server, to integrating Sonos speakers with Amazon Echo.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We have never used Oculus Rift, Amazon Echo or Sonos before and we were able to incorporate all of them into an immersive experience.
