Nestle AR Gesture Games

Submitted by on Monday, 21 February 20112 Comments

Zugara are somewhat experts in area of gesture recognition. If you have followed AR for a while you will know they are the brains behind the Fashionista application that enables consumers to try on clothes from the comfort of their living rooms. Recently however Zugara have turned their attention to creating gesture recognition games, you may remember their first Nestle Factory Game which we reviewed recently.
Nestle it appears were so impressed with the results they have continued working with Zugara who have been busy creating two follow up titles.

Fruit Ensemble is a rhythm-based game where the player must use their hands to tap fruit (that appears randomly around them) in time with the music. Think “Whack-A-Mole”, only the “moles” appear in random places all around the player.

Fruit Mixer Studio let’s people tap fruit to mix and record unique beats that can be saved to a desktop or sent directly to a mobile phone as a ringtone.
Neither game requires a marker or anything special. Simply visit the page below and interact with the screen by using your webcam.

    That’s a nice movement recognition…
    it’s lovely to have a full body interaction…
    last November I created an Augmented Reality game.
    The marker recognition base in C, but then ported to Actionscript in order to make the animations and interaction in Flash with a 3D library (Papervision3D).
    The interesting thing it’s that the game is in full size, so it really gives the player the sensation to be in the game.
    Check it out!
