This virtual reality marketing app allows users to immerse themselves in different perspectives of a Bühler Ecoline S Die-Casting machine. The technological challenge: the environment is projected as spherical maps over which a video plays. This increases the immersive experience in terms of understanding processes better than in images while keeping file-size low. The user can change the location or view additional information through the GUI. If no VR cardboard is available, a normal display mode can be used to look around with the mobile device's gyroscope function.
This was one of my first virtual reality app with spherical video maps, which was a interesting challenge to code. Due to the limitations on video file sizes (and images) with a total size of 2k on mobile, a lot had to be optimized to get a satisfactory result. I had a lot of fun creating the dynamic GUI and its animations within the engine to generate a good user experience. I created my own dynamic GUI mechanisms that formed the basis for GUIs that have been used in subsequent projects as can be seen in my portfolio.
