    Interactive video player wins Hack The Visual award for Creative Technology student

    15/07/2015
    MSc Creative Technology student Lionel Chok picks up 'Hack The Visual' Award after team designs first ever multi-touch video player.

     

    MDX MSc Creative Technology student Lionel Chok and his team decided to address this, and their resulting project 'Sharon' picked up a Hack The Visual Award at the end of June.

    Over 100 hackers, makers, designers, developers and visual artists came together for the 48-hour hackathon in London's Shoreditch.

    At the end of the two-day event the various projects went before the judges, with Sharon winning Lionel and his team a prize of £500 as 'the most immersive and interactive visual experience'.

    "Since using the very first iPhone, we have become accustomed to pinching our photos to zoom," says Lionel "However, interactivity through pinching videos, especially while it's playing, has never been a feature."

    After proposing the idea to his team during the Hack The Visual hackathon, Lionel researched the concept and worked on the interface design and brand of the app.

    "After a good rest from the hackathon, all of us are now brainstorming and evaluating the viability of taking it further, looking at possibilities of how we can turn this into an app or business." he says.
