Virtual Reality @ Hackfest, IIT (ISM) Dhanbad

HackFest is IIT(ISM) Dhanbad’s 36-hour annual hackathon organized by the Computer Science and Engineering Society (CSES) and ACM Student Chapter, IIT(ISM) Dhanbad.

The event started with an introduction of speakers. Prathamesh, Umesh, and Shahbaz ( yep it’s me ), since we had limited time with us. So it was a quick talk-demo-workshop.

Prathamesh started with his favorite virtual girlfriend story to explain the concept of  Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality. After a long and tiring hackathon, the audience seems interested and was into it.

I talked about the basics of WebVR, why we brought the VR on Web and what are their advantages. Used Kevin’s presentation for explaining the concept in details with his amazing presentation (https://aframevr.github.io/aframe-presentation-kit/).

After explaining what WebVR is, we asked participants to visit https://aframe.io/ and remix the hello world example on  http://glitch.com/

 

Due to the limited amount of time, participants couldn’t finish their idea. So we gave them a contest, where top 5 scenes will get a surprise gift from us.

And here comes, what we love most. After event photograph with the participants.
