360 Gyro Competition

Welcome to the third ZapWorks competition. Submit your entry before Tuesday 27th March for the chance to win $500 and a ZapBox!

Brief

Theme: 360 Gyro

Deadline: Tuesday 27th March

For this competition, we are challenging you to build an experience in ZapWorks Studio that incorporates Gyro-oriented environments. ZapWorks Studio supports using a device's gyroscope (and other sensors) for building experiences that can be explored by rotating the phone. The gyroscope environment support can be used with a 360 “photo sphere” panorama (a real world photographic asset) or a virtual 360 environment created with 2D or 3D design tools. You can also create a semi-transparent panorama where the live camera feed is seen in the background and digital elements positioned in the scene.

As well as asking you to create something using a gyro-oriented environment, we are looking for you to add in some additional layers of interactivity and entertainment.

This can come in any number of different ways, for example:

  • Adding 3D models to your scene (plus points for animation),

  • Creating a game mechanic where the user has to find and collect items,

  • Using more than one photo sphere to create multiple environments that the user can switch between,

  • Incorporating 360 video,

  • Add tappable hotspots to display additional information,

  • Utilize Headset mode (VR) and using raycasters for interactivity.

Don’t forget to document your progress on the forum, our team and community are always happy to provide assistance and feedback along the way. Most importantly, the team at Zappar hope that this competition allows you to learn something new and as well as enjoy the challenge of building your experience. Good luck!
