Name: Ball InvasionQuick Pitch: Ball Invasion for iPad 2 uses simultaneous localization and mapping technology to build real-time 3D maps of the environment as you move the iPad’s camera around.
Genius Idea: A 3D shooter game, set in the real world. Adding the three-dimensional realm of what’s in front to you to a first-person shooter game could make for some pretty entertaining game play.
Ball Invasion, an application [iTunes link] for iPad 2, promises just that. Hold your device’s camera up to a flat surface with plenty of detail — a bookshelf or magazine for instance — and Ball Invasion will map out your surroundings and generate a playing field.
You’re then tasked to shoot “malicious and cunning balls hiding in the real world,” with the challenge becoming more difficult with each progressive level.
