A Virtual Reality application to build computers (end-of-degree project)
The end-of-degree project “A Virtual Reality application to build computers” (“Aplicació en realitat virtual de muntatge d’ordinadors”) was defended by Carlos Veny Carmona with the supervision of Antoni Oliver and Antoni Bibiloni.
This project presents an interactive web application with an immersive environment that presents the user with some challenges to build a computer that complies with several specifications. The user has to select the adequate components, such as motherboard, CPU, memory, storage, etc, and place them in their appropriate place.
Being a Virtual Reality application, a careful design of the interface was crucial: how to grab the components and how to place them in the case (and over other components, such as over the motherboard) was a priority.
To complement the VR application, a web tool was developed to maintain the catalog of computer parts and tasks to be performed.
The application can be visited online at https://alumnes-ltim.uib.es/pcbuilder/ and it can be played with desktop computers and VR gear.
