Thinking inside the Box - Projektwoche @HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd
The project week introduced students to the basics of Web-VR technologies. For this purpose we worked on virtual 'Escaperooms', which make use of different types of spatial puzzles. For the programming part we used A-Frame, a beginner-friendly framework based on three.js. It allows a gentle introduction into the world of WebGL. For the design of the 3D elements we use 'studio.io', a CAD tool with which Lego models can be created. This combination of technologies allowed the participants to create interesting experiences within one week and without any prior knowledge. I jointly planned and executed the workshop in cooperation with my colleague Martin Schneider.
