ICHack 2019 Winner - Best Mobile App

Updated: Oct 20, 2019



ICHack is UK's largest student-led hackathon hosted annually at Imperial College London.

As a team of all first year students, we were able to win the 'Best Mobile App' prize along with a pair of Sennheiser PXC 550 headphones for each team member.

Inspiration

'ARnold' offers an easy solution for lecturers to share, highlight and present 3D interactive models to students. The application allows students to access real-time 3D models shared by the professors with a simple access code.

What it does

ARnold offers an easy solution for lecturers to share, highlight and present 3D interactive models to students. The application allows students to access real-time 3D models shared by the professors with a simple access code. In the engine example, it's like the professor handing out an engine to each individual student as opposed to just showing 2D pictures of it on the screen.



How we built it

We used Unity as our development platform. This allowed us to have an easy to use rendering engine as well as giving us access to the Vuforia AR plugin. We did the networking using Photon PUN from the Unity asset store.


My Role


In this project, I was the project manager. Using my experience in Unity, I quickly gave the team a brief overview on how to use Unity. Alongside helping my teammates with any Unity issues they were facing, I was working on the importing of ".obj" files sending them over the network using Photon PUN and integrating the project with Vuforia.

Once the project was finished and we were selected for presentations. I was one of the main speakers showcasing the project functionality.
