Prototype Synergy

Synergy is a project which has been created during the "Digitale Medien 3" course at Erfurt University of Applied Sciences. We have developed a vision for a future interaction scenario with 3D globes. This repo contains the web based prototype of our vision. You can also find a video about creating this prototype on YouTube.

Highlights

  • Search places through Googles Web Speech API
  • Controll the globe through a Leap Motion device
  • Use "airplane" mode to fly through impressive landmarks
  • Get additional information from Wikipedia

Development

Getting started

The first thing to do is to clone this repository and run

npm install

in both, the root and the client folder in order to install all environment dependencies. After that make sure to install all bower components in the client folder by running

bower install

Synergy has only been tested against the latest Chrome(v34) version. We recommend using it during development.

Develop the server side

To start the the node.js server go into the root directory and run

grunt serve

The server will watch any file changes, automatically lint your script and restart the server.

Develop the client side

In order to develop the client just open an additional command line and run

grunt serve

in the client directory.
