3D Virtual Home, Interactive Home Control, Smartphone
Virtual Teratak, a 3D virtual home navigation and control system is designed and developed to complement or replace existing remote controls, allowing home users to control network-connectable devices such as controllable lights, televisions, fans, etc. easily and conveniently with Android-based smartphones. The system is augmented with actual photos of the home so that users can control home devices more intuitively. A 3D virtual home navigation interface is also implemented with WebGL and HTML5 running on web browsers, which enable the users to have a more immersive experience in controlling their home appliances. Users can thus navigate the 3D virtual home, touch the 3D virtual appliances and control the actual appliances easily. Virtual Teratak has been successfully implemented and integrated into the Digital Home located within Multimedia University, Malaysia.
