Gamagora, France, 2015

by Farges Maelyss

This internship completes my second year of master in computer science at Gamagora school.

It was conducted from April 13 to September 30 2015 within the company Corexpert located in the tower of Lyon La Part ­Dieu.

My main mission was to adapt a bodyboard simulation game on mobile (Android and iPhone), YouRiding Journey, to an augmented reality surfing game called Virtual Surf.

Virtual Surf is currently an attraction of “La cité de l’Océan” in Biarritz and was the subject of a TV report on France 3 Aquitaine.

The two versions of the game were made using Unity 4 but VirtualSurf uses the technology of Kinect and Oculus to maximize the player’s immersion sensations.
