Innovation runs in our blood and we love exploring fresh technologies. With newfound access to virtual reality via smartphones, we were excited to dive into a new realm of experiences with our VR app, Tiny Eye, inspired by the classic "I Spy" game from the '90s. Venturing into virtual reality was an exercise in creativity, improvisation, and collaboration for all design and development contributors. We loved building a dynamic, engaging product, as well as developing a systematic roadmap to leverage in future VR projects.

Challenge

Introduce users to virtual reality using nostalgic and relatable content while learning to develop and design for VR with little documentation available.

Solution

Develop a fun smartphone app that lets users experience a childhood classic in a completely new way, creating a polished, delightful, and memorable experience for virtual reality enthusiasts everywhere.

Outcome

An entertaining and polished smartphone VR app, easily accessible to anyone with a smartphone and a Mobile VR viewer. A flexible development cycle to approach other virtual reality projects.
