As some of you might know we are one of a handful agencies who’s been invited by Google to take part in a two week hackathon to work up some cool stuff for their Google+ hangouts project -Really exciting stuff!!
For those of you who don’t know what we are talking about, here’a s a link to Google’s official blog where they released the news about their latest API end of last week.
This API has a bunch of new features and possibilities to build upon, the ability to respond to facial movements in real-time inside an app for example, and new sendMessage functionality that we’re trying out as we speak.
On that note; We are’re working on a table Foosball game, a game that will take advantage of as many funky features of this new API as possible, you can follow our work in close on our rehabstudio Google+ hangout .
What exactly is an API you may ask? In short, its the interface where development and new code is written. Simple!
Our Fossball game is WIP - Its going well, we’re well excited and … well, we have until 29th May, then we will send our work to Google for a final review, followed by launch 1st June.
This is where its AT rehabstudio G+ hangout page, come hang out!
Ps. Here’s some more information about this API thing we keep going on about.

We had the pleasure of working with Andrew towards the end of last year, his God Visions project is wicked.
We’re not sure where this one came from but it’s a beauty.
I Am not an Artist
This is a super simple but fun project from Soon in Tokyo, Commissioned by Elisava School of Design – check it out!
Cool selection of madness here, some NSFW
And that leads me nicely onto our latest project for Last.fm – Last.fm Presents, we went right in for the early 80’s lazer machine for the art direction on their monthly club nights in London, check it out here.
As you were.
“That was cold blooded…”
Not that Unity, we’re talking about Unity 3D. We’ve been playing with this awesome games engine for a couple of months now, really good fun.
One of the tests that we’ve got working is Unity working with augmented reality through the flash engine, print this card out and check out the steering demo we put together here. I guess the only negative about this lightweight 3D games engine is that you need to install a web plugin (you can get it from here) but the install is quick and easy.
So once you get the thing up and working its freeking awesome, it’s like having an xBox in your browser and super easy to get up and running. Version 3 is coming out soon, here’s a few screen-shots

We’ve been meaning to do this for a long time – these posts (easily identifiable) by their terminal like theme will contain a collection tech we like & what we’re experimenting with.
These posts are bubbled up from our senior tech teams in Belfast & London – Enjoy!
