  • A-Frame 107: Immersive Holiday Challenge

    Tishman Auditorium, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall (New School)

    'Tis the season so may I ask you this: Do you want to build a snowman? No, we don't need actual snow in the streets of New York City to shovel together our creations, we can build snowmen by simply using A-frame primitives. • What we'll do You are going to create your own personal little virtual snowman with A-Frame primitives, accessorize, animate and decorate as much as time permits (we have a sharp cut off for your submission to be shared at the end of the meetup, but you can elaborate on your snowman after you submit) And then ...? Your snowman will be displayed in a gallery alongside your competition. We are also going to show you how to create a personal marker-based AR Holiday Greeting Card with a template that we will provide. You can send your physical postcard with your Aframe AR Snowman creation to your loved ones this season! • What to bring Fully charged laptops and smartphones to test! For this challenge, we will be live editing and publishing our immersive content on Glitch, so we encourage you to sign up for your own personal free account on https://glitch.com/ • Important to know For anyone that missed any previous meetups, please review the slides archive and demo files: https://github.com/roland-dubois/aframe-meetup-nyc Make sure to show up (on time) when you RSVP, we only have limited seats.
