Hi everybody! We are Edgar and Alessandro, interns here at High Fidelity. What you see in the video is the result of our work here over the past three months.
After talking with the brilliant people here and exchanging ideas, we came up with the VR Commerce idea. The challenge was not easy but it was a great way to test our abilities as designers and developers and to apply everything we learned here.
A big part of the challenge was to design everything baring in mind that:
- Users will only use HMDs and hand controllers;
- There is currently no available HMD UI in High Fidelity;
- We had to finish everything before the internship ended!
The goal we wanted to achieve was to build an environment that enabled the user to experience a combination between real shopping (being with friends, listening to a salesperson and grabbing an item with your hand) and e-commerce (quickly change colors, see customer reviews, don’t move from your comfortable chair).
