Motorola teases Pixar-animated augmented reality game in "Windy Day" video
Geri's Game, as well as co-directing Ratatouille.The first minute or so of the video is literally just people holding Moto X phones and turning around in circles or looking around through the phone's display. However, that last few seconds are quite interesting indeed, because what is shown on screen doesn't look much like an augmented reality game at all. It looks like a pretty cool cartoon, which makes sense because the game was made with the help of Jan Pinkava who most famously wrote and directed the Pixar short
The video was shown off at the Qualcomm Uplinq conference, and was used to demonstrate a new real-time animation process by Pixar called OpenSubdiv. We don't know exactly what the game will be, but the worst news of all of this is that it seems like it may be a Moto X exclusive. We're hoping it is a timed exclusive that comes to other Android devices eventually though. We'll know more this coming Tuesday, October 29th.
