Augmented Reality Game!


This is a video about an augmented reality game called Levelhead by Julian Olivier that uses special cubes to interact with a character inside them. Augmented reality is a recent technology that's slowly becoming mainstream and I think that's awesome because the gameplay possibilities are immense. From the developer's website:

"levelHead uses a hand-held solid-plastic cube as its only interface. On-screen it appears each face of the cube contains a little room, each of which are logically connected by doors.

In one of these rooms is a character. By tilting the cube the player directs this character from room to room in an effort to find the exit.

Some doors lead nowhere and will send the character back to the room they started in, a trick designed to challenge the player's spatial memory. Which doors belong to which rooms?"

The objective of this particular game is to find the exit of the house. So what do you think? Games like this are already possible for Iphone and Android devices, some Augmented Reality games are already in the market. It's just a matter of time before we see something more complex and engaging.


  1. are you kidding me... this is awesome, would not play it cos i would be bored in 2 sec but still looks awesome

  2. That is so cool, I cant wait til in a couple of years time when this technology is really kicking off.

  3. In a few year we will all look like weirdo with our phone filming cube, laser blasting stranger or filming ourself while looking at a screen

    I can't wait

  4. This looks amazing. Does this particular game have an objective or is it just walk through doors?
