Create an intuitive interface for virtual reality video apps
The VR Interface Competition is a $10.000 competition, challenging designers and developers from around the world to create an intuitive interface for virtual reality video apps.
The person or team with the best interface receives $7500 in prize money and gets his or her template featured on the Headjack Template Marketplace. The second place winner will receive $2500 in prize money.
The need for this prize
The majority of interfaces we see in the current generation of VR apps are confusing and rather plain. They’re usually not much more than a floating plane with some text on it. With this competition we want to stimulate designers and developers from around the world to come up with fresh ideas about UI’s in VR and create some innovative designs that push the boundaries of this exciting medium.
How to Participate in the competition?
Participating in this competition is simple:
- Create a free Headjack account
- Download a template package from Headjack’s Template Marketplace as a starting point or follow the API tutorial to create a template from scratch
- Start Unity and let your creativity go wild!
Once your interface is finished, you should upload your template to the Headjack Template Marketplace as a Public free template before March 15th 2017. That’s it!
To qualify for the prize, your submission should meet the following criteria:
- Is created using the Headjack Unity API
- Should have support for mobile VR
- Runs smoothly and without frame drops
The submission deadline is March 15th 2017 and the winners will be announced one month later.
Headjack is an app creation and content management platform for 360º video producers, making it possible to create white-label, multi-platform VR apps within minutes instead of months and without writing a single line of code.
The Headjack API on the other hand enables developers to easily create a fully-functioning VR interface using the popular Unity game engine, allowing complete customization of the app experience without having to build a complete backend system first. It is hosting, transcoding, app creation, content management and analytics in a single, powerful package.
