VR simulation development
Google Daydream / Cardboard
The client has an application framework which should be adapted to the appropriate platforms for iOS and Android. This is a VR education app that perfectly supports learning about water supply. Our job was to review the application and make the necessary changes to the code + prepare version for Google Daydream, Google Cardboard, and iOS, that will pass the store’s review without problems.
Making the most out of existing code and assets
VR in education: Water supply
Making corrections or adding functionality to an existing application is no different from designing a new VR learning application. If we have access to the documentation – it is much simpler, but – which is, unfortunately, a common practice – usually we have to read everything from the code.
The client was very helpful in the context of verifying the correctness of the application and its components. We identified weak spots that generated problems or could cause an application error in specific activities. The customer had full confidence in our virtual reality studio and agreed to the proposed amendments. A few small elements had to be programmed differently, but these were activities that optimized the application.
Initially, our work consisted in the verification of the application, code, and UX. We have created a proposed list of improvements and improvements that we have presented to the client. After reviewing the customer’s comments, a decision was made to introduce them and the proposed date of completion. In this case, we used the classic “waterfall”.
The project was a success and the client received a refreshed version of his VR education app with the list of implemented improvements. Additionally, a set of builds dedicated to different shops and devices.
The customer receives applications checked by a professional VR company, along with tested builds.
It's good to have a helping hand
