Float Mobile Learning congratulates Sean McCracken, augmented reality and gaming developer extraordinaire, and CEO of Imaginary Computer, for winning the $10,000 Rackspace Google Glass Developer Contest in September at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in New York City.
You can see two videos about the award – one that shows the judges discussing the finalists and coming to a conclusion, and another (below) where Sean demonstrates his application for Google Glass, a new game called Psyclops. He describes it as “3-D Space Invaders mixed with Missile Command.”
The game is based on augmented reality (AR), where alien invaders descend on the location of the viewer and can be seen and shot down with Google Glass.
AR has yet to make inroads into the world of learning and development, but it is coming, led by developments in the world of gaming and simulation.
