“Playing” rugby

Just testing out a rugby kicking game powered by Mircosoft’s Kinect controller in honour of the Six Nations. Basically the game reads our body language and replicates that on-screen in the form of you taking a spot kick. Cool isn’t it? Get in touch to find out more!

Just spotted a article in Techcrunch – will VR go mainstream? will AR be bigger? Our bet is on AR, VR with iBeacons – I […]
