5 new games for Google Glass
Google Glass is a wearable computer with an optical head-mounted display (OHMD) that is being developed by Google in the Project Glass research and development project, with a mission of producing a mass-market ubiquitous computer. Google Glass displays information in a smartphone-like hands-free format, that can communicate with the Internet via natural language voice commands.
Google unveiled 5 new games for google glass on 1 jan.
Each of the five games are simplistic in design, but show how developers can use Glass’s voice recognition and motion sensor.
Tennis: Your head’s your racket in this rally. The gyroscope and accelerometer team up to precisely gauge the player’s head tilts to move left and right.
Balance: Finally, a way to find out how well you’d do at Swiss finishing school. Shift your head to keep a precarious pile of shapes from toppling over.
Clay Shooter: A classic shooting game with a new point of view. Say “Pull!” and a pigeon is launched in the direction you’re looking. The accelerometer and some Newtonian physics help determine the pigeon’s path.
Matcher: Put your memory and concentration to the test on a twist of a classic card-matching game. The gyroscope and accelerometer team up to precisely follow the position of the player’s head.
Shape Splitter: Have fun slicing and dicing shapes into oblivion.
