Hi, we’re currently in early development of a new interactive platform. I’m just doing a feasibility check for something we currently have in planning. The brief is:
An interactive globe that has overlayed elements such as animated gifs or videos. Users will be able to rotate and view elements in more detail (focussed in on the video to watch it for example).
Ideally there could be session logic in this (e.g visual prompts for what had been previously viewed).
Also ideally things could be populated via an API, and use data pushed back.
Is this something that sounds feasible with Babylon? From reading it would mostly be done using meshes, the globe seems relatively simple. But what about the media elements and data transfer? Does this work like standard js for pushing and pulling data?
Our devs are very competent in js and modern frameworks, and have experience in things like greensocks and libraries for animation. Should this be easy enough to pick up through prototyping stages? (E.g. not having to bring on somebody who specialises in Babylon or 3D experience).
