Augmented Reality, brought to you by Qualcomm
Qualcomm and Mattel are showing off a nifty augmented-reality game for Android…Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em.
Alls you do is lay out the mat, point your phone’s camera at it, and the boxers duke it out on your screen. The game’s graphics look great, and it’s a “pre-commercial” demo so they aren’t sharing pricing info yet.
I think it’s safe to expect an explosion of these types of AR games over the next 12 months. (And while we’re on the subject, check out the demo of Josh Shabtai’s AR iPhone game, Falcon Gunner.)
