ARhrrrr – An Augmented Reality Zombie Game

21 06 2009

Students at the Georgia Tech Augmented Environments Lab have created another innovative user interface that could see the light of day in engineering and science fields.

In this prototype game “ARhrrr“, the player uses a mobile camera phone to navigate through a real two-dimensional map. The beauty of this product is that computer-generated elements are added to the scene being filmed by the camera.  This means that zombies are digitally added to the map, and the player interacts with the map via the different customized buttons in the camera.

To win the game, the player must destroy the zombies with rainbow-coloured Skittles.  Yes, you read right… Skittles.  How cool is that ?
