ABOUT

Aerial is a project made in AGI15 at KTH. It is a game where you control an airplane by tilting your head via a smart phone. The goal of the game is to avoid space mangoes and fly through rings.

The goal of the project was to make a game that somebody who is paralyzed from the shoulders and down is able to play.

TECHNOLOGY

Using the gyroscope from the smartphone directly in the phone’s browser, we send the data to a server which propagates it to the viewer. The project is written with Javascript, (except for shaders) using node.js for the server part, socket.io for connections between units and mostly Three.js for the effects in the viewer.

The project was created in 3 weeks during the course “Advanced Graphics and Interaction” and was well received by the audience at the KTH VIC Open House where it was exhibited.
