This year, Croatian Telekom has once again organized a hackaton, event where teams, that are assembled from programmers, graphic designers, project managers, and others, try to find a solution, idea or prototype, on certain topic or for certain technology in period of 24 hours. Under “Fight for the Future” motto, the goal this year was to find solution for future of modern communication technologies and event was held on 28. and 29.10. Besides the money for best 3 teams and additional workshop for winners, HT as organizer took care that every team gets a small gift, has enough food and drinks, and they also ensured that we have professional help of our ideas and solutions from experienced and excellent mentors.
Our team decided for solution based on AR, augmented reality, and interactive games. General idea was to use augmented reality for scanning promotion materials and through playing games collect as much points as possible to receive rewards or special discounts on buying the service or products. We managed to make a prototype app with 2 games where user had to collect as much points as possible in 1 minute. Below you can see two picture of games directly from application, one of them was collecting the boxes before monsters eats them, and the other was shooting the ball through basketball hoop.
