Augmented Reality Keepie Uppies

Submitted by on Monday, 5 July 20107 Comments

Interacting with games via your phone’s camera makes for a lot of fun. Not great however when you’re on a packed train commuting to work.

The most popular genre of augmented reality games so far are those that require you to pan around and flight the aliens, ghosts, slime or whatever else comes at you from all sides. With iOS4 opening the camera API for developers we’ll start to see image recognition games making an appearance very soon.

Upsies is a ‘coming soon’ game iPhone game based on keepie uppies where you keep the ball in the air by kicking a virtual ball. Below is a rather long winded video of the game. Skip to around 2.12 for the interesting bit.

    This is an awesome soccer APP! I can’t wait for a recognition system more accurate to make the ball move in a less predictable way. I know this is the very beginning! So, keep up the good work!
    Thanks Lester for the news!

    Hi Willy,

    The app is a good start. I’m sure once developers have had 6 months to play with the API we’ll see some really clever stuff.
