Google unveils 5 new games for Glass


More than likely you probably don’t own a Google Glass. Don’t beat yourself up, it just means you may not have heard about the new 5 mini-games Google have released for it. The games were rolled out earlier this Monday as part as an invitation to inspire developers to create new content for the platform.

Each of the five games are simplistic in design but show how developers can use Glass’ voice recognition and motion sensor.

Tennis: Your head’s your racket in this rally. The gyroscope and accelerometer team up to precisely gauge the player’s head tilts to move left and right.

Balance: Finally, a way to find out how well you’d do at Swiss finishing school. Shift your head to keep a precarious pile of shapes from toppling over.

Clay Shooter: A classic shooting game with a new point of view. Say “Pull!” and a pigeon is launched in the direction you’re looking. The accelerometer and some Newtonian physics help determine the pigeon’s path.

Matcher: Put your memory and concentration to the test on a twist of a classic card-matching game. The gyroscope and accelerometer team up to precisely follow the position of the player’s head.

Shape Splitter: Have fun slicing and dicing shapes into oblivion.

Next-gen AAA titles these are not, but you can see where they are laying the ground work. I predict it won’t be long now before there will be a Cyclops-themed game where you will be able to hit innocent bystanders with your own optic blast. Chances are there will be a lot of shooting games. ‘Murica!

You can check out the trailer for the five mini-games below.
