HERZELIA, ISRAEL (PRWEB) February 19, 2015
Extreme Reality, the only company to provide 3D motion control on any webcam and platform, announced today that its technology will be available on Warchief, an Android-based TV game console developed by Xiaocong Network Limited and Qihoo 360. The console was launched beginning of January 2015 in China.
"With our partnership with Extreme Reality, we'll deliver staggering interactive motion experiences to the owners of Warchief," said Zhang Weiming, CEO of Xiaocong "Using a single 2D webcam enabled us to keep a competitive price while not having to settle on quality and content."
Warchief Android Console will include a wide variety of games that are controlled in various ways. Some games will be controlled by classic game controller or Xiaocong's unique absolute pointing controller with built-in G-sensors/gyros while others will use full body motion. A selection of games will be powered by Extreme Reality, ranging from sports to dance motion games.
"We are proud to be a part of the Warchief game console that offers advanced features to consumers. This partnership with Xiaocong will result in high quality motion controlled games becoming available to audiences across China without the need for a high cost 3D camera," said Asaf Barzilay, CEO of Extreme Reality.
With Extreme Reality's technology integrated in an Android game for Warchief game console, all a player needs to do is select the game and take two steps back while facing the console's webcam. The motion of the player’s body will be captured and analyzed in real-time, enabling their motion to control the game and allowing them to play in front of the TV while enjoying an immersive motion control experience.
