camera takes in an environment which is then analyzed and processed by an app. for newer smartphones also have special infrared cameras called depth sensors they measure the world basically and thanks to these measurements a phone can locate exactly where it is in a real life environment. so i can move forward or backward or i can turn around. the size of the space is irrelevant it can be the whole world like with ingress one of the 1st games to use g.p.s. tracking it incorporates landmarks from the real world to create a virtual game world. or the spice can be restricted to a book. like this award winning adventure game. here a familiar medium becomes interactive the camera recognizes the pages and allows
the reader to decide how the story should continue using expanded reality. it becomes an adventure game depending on what decision the app user makes he or she is forwarded to other pages of the book and experiences the story in a new way. smartphone take is constantly being developed and this also makes such sophisticated game related ideas possible take angry birds for example the game 1st came on the scene 10 years ago but now there's an augmented reality version which adds a whole new level to the gaming president for example i now have to play is the level i want to play in my environment and can then move around it and she was the perfect spot to launch my attack. microsoft is taking it a step further they bought minecraft the world's most successful computer game in september 24th team for over 2000000000 euro. the mobile version of the game is

point cloud is created and uploaded to an open source cloud system the app uses the information to find its way in the real world and all gamers are able to see the objects in this. game most can work together to create architectural masterpieces but at the same time they're also in directly working for microsoft for free it's no secret that microsoft google and call collect as much location data as they can through my phone so long as i don't opt out the data collected from minecraft earth is going straight into microsoft's cloud system and is helping create a super precise 3 d. model of the earth this trouble's privacy advocates now microsoft insists that no photos of the gaming environment will end up online only low resolution point but what about if i play minecraft at home will my apartment then be scanned and
