Touch screen is now officially old school because a Beijing-based iOS games developer had just released a kinect-like game using iPad 2, iPod Touch 4 or iPhone 4 front camera to digitize your movement.
You are a scarecrow, frantically shaking your head side-to-side to prevent the evil crows from destroying stealing your pumpkins. Calibrating the camera and your face is easy and straight-forward.
See the video below on YouTube:
Vision Hacker, the developer behind this game has big plans for this body-motion technology: “What is ‘MYB’ game? It stands for ‘Move Your Body’. Unlike the traditional iOS games that use touch or gravity controls, ‘YB’ games exploit the power of computer sensors and augmented reality (AR).”
This game sounds cool but probably it’s not for someone who has neck problems. You can download it via iTunes here for US$0.99. At this price, it’s a steal.
