At the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Extreme Reality is demonstrating VTree Entertainment's Pro Riders Snowboard game with 3D motion controls using a standard 2D webcam. VTree Entertainment released the game this January and plans to release the 3D motion control-enhanced version by end of May 2013.
Developed by VTree Entertainment, Pro Riders Snowboard has stunning character visuals and vivid surrounding environments. The game also includes real-world snowboarding physics with tricks, flips, jumps and grinds.

Extreme Motion full-body 3D motion capture technology enables full-body 3D motion capture using a standard 2D camera.
