Get ready to see video AR in your AppStore!

The guys from tvguide.co.uk seem to have managed a way to upload a video-camera-using iPhone application to the apple store. They claim that it works flawlessly, but only with the latest iPhone 3GS. So it seems, that Apple really opened up the video interface for the new SDK. Unfortunatelly I don’t own a 3GS… maybe someone can comment on first […]

INVIZIMALS

A new game for the Playstation Portable was announced. Using the camera they allow you to see animals appear on your desk and it looks like a beat-em-up multiplayer. Interesting is the use of new interaction paradigms, like blowing (trigger a storm), shaking (earthquake) or shading your animal friends. The only thing I don’t understand is how they want to […]

It’s a 3rd person jump-and-sneak 3D game (if you don’t know the first one). Once you’ve seen the trailer you can get to an AR demo: the left button brings […]

upgrade your slot car tracks

A cool demonstrator from beyond reality was shown at the Game Developer Conference. It’s the classic slot car game you’d setup in your children’s room.

A game is always only the first application, let’s see where it […]

Pimp My Trading Cards

After several automotive AR demos to download (Mini, Toyota IQ, …) there is a new buddy queueing for attention. Topps Sports Cards offers augmentation for baseball trading cards! There have been different attempts (also AR already) to pimp up old dusty card games, this one is another example for “wow-effect without a cause”. It could get interesting when you could […]
