Mind Pirate Selects Winners To Develop Games For Google Glass
Google Glass is an interesting piece of technology, and developers want to see what it's capable of. Thanks to Mind Pirate and the Canadian Film Centre (CFC), four teams will get their chance.
As part of the IdeaBOOST/Mind Pirate Production Lab project, the two companies chose four developers that will get the chance to create new properties for wearable technology, including Google Glass. The teams include Normative from Toronto, Imaginary Computer from New Mexico, Little Guy Games from Toronto and Smokebomb Entertainment from Toronto.
In addition to developmental tools related to Google Glass, the teams will also receive $10,000 grants to assist in app creation.
"The responses from high caliber developers eager to participate in the production lab have been amazing, so our biggest challenge has been narrowing the field," said Ana Serrano, Chief Digital Officer, Canadian Film Centre. "As we work with our developers to explore new ways to create games and apps for wearable technology such as Google Glass, this project continues to strengthen CFC's commitment to the future of entertainment." Â "We have received many creative, highly innovative, and refreshingly unique game ideas that push the boundaries of what wearable technology devices can do. For developers and consumers alike, this is very exciting," said Shawn Hardin, Founder & CEO of Mind Pirate. "Developers are ready to push the envelope and create new experiences that will help make wearable technologyÂ tomorrow, what the iPhone is today. We can't wait toÂ enable theÂ next generation experiences that these talented developers will create."
Good luck to all four teams!
