Rock’em Sock’em Robots

Submitted by on Tuesday, 6 July 20106 Comments

Android owners have been able to enjoy natural feature recognition applications for sometime. Recently Zenitum where showing off their Space InvadAR game, but beyond that, for some strange reason despite developers having full access to the camera we haven’t seen a huge number of natural feature recognition games arriving on the platform. I always find that strange since iPhone developers number one gripe at Apple has been the lack of access to the camera API. (which has been granted now).

Qualcomm have been working with Mattel to produce a rather nice game based on Rock’em Sock’em Robots. Print the game board and point your camera to take control of a boxing robot. Of couse being an augmented reality game you can move your device around the game board to view your fighter from different angels,  if your friends have the game then you can both play over Bluetooth.

MobileCruch have a rather nice write up which you can find here, and they have put together a video of the game which you can view below.
