Smoki AR Facebook Fun

Submitted by on Monday, 21 February 2011One Comment

Smoki AR GameIf you have a Facebook account take a look at the Smoki augmented reality game.

If you have no idea what Smoki’s are, think Wotsits if you’re British, think Cheetos if you’re from across the pond.  Smoki’s I’m informed by Ivan Rečević from HUGE Media, the games creator are a local brand of cheesy snacks from Serbia, but their snacky goodness is irrelevant. What is important is the game requires you to eat as many of the snacks as they fall from the screen as possible. This can be achieved either by moving the mouse to control the character or by using your webcam.

In the webcam mode you use your head to eat the snacks as they fall. The more you catch the higher the score. It’s a good example of using head tracking as a human interface and the challenge friends option is a nice touch. The campaign is over but the game is still live so check it out at: http://apps.facebook.com/gladni-zabave/
