Motion gaming comes to Apple TV: Motion Tennis

Yes you heard that right. We have been working on rolomotion (www.rolomotion.tv) - a tech that brings motion gaming to Apple TV using your iPhone/iPod Touch.



We are pretty excited about this tech and its possibilities in gaming. We have also managed to optimise the airplay mirroring lag. We will be sending out exclusive beta invites for the first rolomotion powered game - Motion Tennis - soon. If you want to get your hands on it, register your email here --> www.rolomotion.tv and it would be great if you can just drop a PM for confirmation.

Motion Tennis will also feature a multiplayer mode that will allow users to play the tennis doubles with family and friends using two iOS devices. In addition to that, the game also tracks the approximate amount of calories burnt during each game session.

Cheers,

This looks pretty cool. Wonder how it'll work in the real world. Real Boxing did a Kinect-style motion gaming by connecting your iPhone or iPad to the TV with HDMI, and then the camera did all the motion. It was fun to play with at first, but it isn't that accurate.

This could be more accurate, but without a wrist band, I'd be afraid to through my $600 iPhone into the TV The 5th Gen iPod Touch with its wrist band is perfect for this though.

Anyway, I've submitted for the beta. Let's see where this goes.

Tried to PM you to send my experience with testing after I signed up for the beta, but I could't get the PM page to work! Any other way I can contact you and hopefully get priority on the list?
