When iNFINITE organised second VR hackathon , we couldn’t say no. After the experience from the first one, we wanted to shine again.
This time our team was much bigger, counting 7 people altogether – Honza, Mato, Hans, Ondrej, Brano, Lukas, Simon.
We set up couple of goals for our project:
- Connect object zero to Android platform
- Run octopus engine on Oculus Rift with Unity
- Connect data from BTC exchange to VR via API
- Create a demo for octopus engine functions
- Have a good time 🙂
- Don’t get sick from chips and redbull
After initial troubles with setting up the stage, our team was ready to go.
Thanks to Ondrej, we managed to run Android app, that means we can extend project to Google DayDream (Cardboard). That is important, because this way we can target much larger audience and community.
Hans and Lukas helped us with gathering data about Bitcoin price from the internet, while Brano was able to run Oculus Rift with Unity.
With Honza we also tried Tiltbrush and now we think about using it for creating hyperobjects.
Unfortunately, we did not have time to finish all our goals, but it was still another great time spent in community of like-minded VR geeks and enthusiasts.
We are definitely looking forward to next hackathon!
“VR hackathon is a friendly event with the purpose of creating together, prototyping, diving into something new or trying that project you delayed for so long. All skill levels are welcome, we help beginners out and veteran creators can benefit from sharing experience with others.”
